    Justice League #51 provides us an interesting tale. Loveness' story might only be a filler, but I believe it shows Loveness has enough potential that DC should offer him this or another title on an ongoing basis. Justice League is one of DC's most important titles and needs a talented writer to give it a consistent direction. Read Full Review

    Robson Rocha offers some great visuals throughout this issue. The characters look amazing. There are beautiful details in every panel. The planet itself is dark and ominous. A great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Aug 18, 2020

    Check it out if you can, as it is exactly what I've been asking for from this book: an arc that doesn't overstay its welcome, and knows the most important story it wants to tell with the time it has. That's the kind of story I can recommend spending money on, and I REALLY hope Part 2 sticks the landing. Read Full Review

    If you want something dark featuring the Justice League while also not having much to do with the grander stakes of the DC narrative, this is a book you're gonna want to read.  Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 18, 2020

    This arc has potential and seems to be an improvement over the last creative teams run already. It wont be long as the Dark Knights Death Metal tie-in kicks off with issue 53 so Loveness and Rocha can tell an efficient and strong story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Aug 24, 2020

    The scariest part of this whole issue is that, once the League even came in range of this thing, they were already under its influence. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 18, 2020

    I liked Justice League #51 because it ties well into Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon's original story using Black Mercy, but also how it cuts into each hero's psyche, testing them. Read Full Review

    This isn't as compelling as the previous arc, which challenged the League with a thorny ethical crisis, but it's another effective fill-in arc. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 18, 2020

    While I look forward to what this planet of the Black Mercy story will bring us overall, this first part came off a bit lackluster in that it took too long to actually get to the story, while padding out the first half with over narration that was just plain boring. The art is great here though and it ends on a strong note, I just wish that it had more of a story to tell in this first chapter.   Read Full Review

    Justice League just feels very out of place right now, and that makes it a hard sell. Read Full Review
