Invasion of the Supermen! Eradicator and his strike team sweep across Earth with devastating consequences. The Justice League finds itself battered and overwhelmed by an enemy more powerful than even Superman. Batman and Green Lantern plan a counter assault, but it can't work without the Flash, whose connection to the Speed Force has become unpredictable-and possibly fatal. With the team at half-strength, will it be enough to hold their enemies at bay?

    Venditti's Justice League may be different from Snyder's but is no less exciting. He is exploring the interaction between the team members a bit more deeply than Snyder, but is not skimping on the action at all. Even with a new creative team, Justice League remains one of the best books in the DC lineup. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Feb 21, 2020

    Venditti's Justice League is hitting the ground running. When the torch was passed he did not miss a beat, moving onto a new and large threat. If you are looking for an action packed team book, you couldn't do better than this week's Justice League. Read Full Review

    Justice League #41(Venditti, Lopresti, Ryan, Baron, Napolitano) continues this new, drastically different take on the Justice League as they battle against Daxamites for ownership of the Earth. Read Full Review

    Aaron Lopresti brings a unique style to the art. There is a lot of action in this issue and Lopresti fills those moments with great hero shots and awesome details. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 19, 2020

    Venditti has to set the stage, but with such a massively powered enemy force, this doesnt seem like the kind of arc that should go for more than four, maybe five issues. Its a solid opening arc for the new creative team although itll be interesting to see how Venditti figures out a way for the team to handle this threat in a credible manner. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 19, 2020

    Two issues in, it seems clear that Robert Venditti's run is going to be a no-holds-barred action extravaganza, pitting the Justice League against some of their most powerful enemies yet. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 19, 2020

    While I loved the art and the idea of the story we're dealing with, I would have liked a little more out of this issue than the big old fight scene that we were given.  Yeah, it was enjoyable for the most part, but this issue flew by and by the end, it didn't seem like we moved the story all that much forward, besides for showing that things can go from bad to worse with the drop of a hat.  Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Feb 19, 2020

    I think the more of DC you've read, the more rewarding this comic might be for you. Not because of the events that take place inside it " it's nothing new for a superhero comic " but because if you've read every other story that takes place before and after it, you know how much each character has been going through. So do these creators, I think, and the issue really feels like they're giving both the characters and the audience some time to take it in. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Feb 25, 2020

    The odds aren't great, and this epic storyline continues to raise the stakes the more Justice League progresses with Robert Venditti skilfully creating an enemy that believably outmatches the League at every turn Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Evan Valentine Feb 19, 2020

    The issue itself doesn't push the boundaries in a way that say Grant Morrison or Scott Snyder's run had, but it's some worthwhile superhero fare, junk food if you will. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Feb 19, 2020

    Unfortunately the same is true about the art, penciled by Aaron Lopresti and inked by Matt Ryan (presumably not that Matt Ryan) with colors by David Barron. Much like Vendittis script, its fairly bog standard superhero action fare thats not especially interesting or great to look at. Coming off a run largely drawn by the likes of Jorge Jimenez and Francis Manapul arguably two of DCs best regular artists at the moment anything else wouldve been a disappointment, and Lopresti/Ryan/Barrons work doesnt meet the level of their predecessors. The overall package of this issue is very meat and potatoes for a certain sect of DC fans who dont want or expect their comics to reinvent the wheel, but I cant help but be left feeling hungry for something else.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Feb 20, 2020

    This kind of workmanlike, tunnel vision approach to storytelling gets the bills paid, but doesn't really feel worth the cover price. Read Full Review

    Justice League #41 is your typical Justice League story. You won't find anything wrong with it, but you won't find anything exciting either. Read Full Review
