    Simon Spurrier's Justice League arc concludes with a double-sized issue, finishing out an unexpected but fascinating story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ethan Coney Aug 8, 2020

    The writing for this finale is done expertly by Spurrier, even if the twists are familiar. It gives the reader a great, easy-to-follow and inspiring ending to this arc that demands to be admired. Whilst it was short, I found the arc a diverting, memorable read. Read Full Review

    Justice League #50 does seem a bit disappointing as a landmark issue, However, it does provide a satisfying conclusion to an interesting and thoughtful story arc. Spurrier is departing the title, but I would love to see Spurrier return to see how he would tackle a more conventional Justice League story. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Aug 4, 2020

    Justice League #50 is a mixed bag. Spurrier's script is really big " almost too big. Nevertheless, there's enough meat on the bone to leave most readers satisfied. Lopresti does his best to manage this behemoth script and his work is admirable, if unmemorable. Overall, the issue doesn't have a perfect landing, but it's good enough. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 4, 2020

    It's all laid out on the table here about what's been going on and maybe it's because of this overwritten ending that things felt like they went on a little too long and got a little boring, but even with those aspects, this is still my favorite chapter of this three-issue arc because by the end it at least made our heroes look like heroes.

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 4, 2020

    A good wrap up to a story arc about leadership and imposing ideals on another culture. I did have issues with the use of the team and ultimately Wonder Woman seems to go against something she tends to fight for always. That said, it's a different kind of Justice League tale worthy of your attention. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Aug 5, 2020

    Issue #50 of The Justice League is here, and it is a filler issue. You could skip this and miss nothing. Bad timing on DC's part in not getting something important for their milestone issue lined up. Instead, the fans get the conclusion of an inconsequential fill-in arc. Read Full Review

    This entire storyline felt like a throwback to the Silver Age"the story itself was perfectly pleasant, but it ultimately felt out of touch with the wider DC Universe. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 4, 2020

    Aaron Lopresti does what he can with the art in this issue, but he doesn't have anything compelling or interesting to do within the confines of this story and it shows. Everything from the featureless aliens to the wrinkled slug creatures tells you that this story and anything within it is disposable so why waste time making anything visually memorable.

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Aug 5, 2020

    when I see a book that feels like it's made by mandate rather than creative expression, I in turn feel disheartened. Reviewing one of them is annoying. Reviewing two of them is frustrating. Reviewing three of them is sad. And seeing as this is the tenth issue of Justice League treading water but refusing to swim, I can't encourage anyone to spend money on taking the dive.
