“The Garden of Mercy” part two of two! For the first time, the Justice League explores the planet of the Black Mercy’s origin. One flower is enough to incapacitate even the strongest hero, but with an entire planet full of them, the Justice League must steel their minds or else succumb to the withering effects of the great tree at the core. With Batman unable to cope, can Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Green Lantern survive the horrors of their souls?

    Justice League #52 is a fantastic issue worthy of DC's flagship team title. Although, this was a fill-in story, the quality was not in the least bit lacking. Loveness, Rocha, and Henriques should take a bow for this fine story. Read Full Review

    This was a fun diversion issue of little consequence, but Loveness crafted a really strong exchange with Batman and Superman. Im curious how Loveness would have developed the bounds of the team if he stayed on a longer stint. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 1, 2020

    It does get hindered by the page count, but I fully enjoyed the entire package that is these two issues. Justice League #52 is contemplative, dark, bravely observational, and a great Batman story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 1, 2020

    While Batman takes center stage this issue and leaves the rest of the Justice League pretty much forgotten about until the book needs to conclude, this is a great look at the Dark Knight and while it comes off initially as familiar territory for our hero, this story is presented in a way that makes what we get here not only interesting to look at, but interesting to read and contemplate as well.

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Sep 2, 2020

    I think that these two issues have been my favourite Justice League issues in a long while " up there with some of my favourite moments with Snyder and Johns' runs. That might be a little unfair, considering this is essentially a comic about Batman hidden within a team book " but it's a story that commits to its message, and is confident in what it wants to say. I honestly wish we had more of it, and saw what each of the member of the Justice League experienced under the effects of the Black Mercy. I hope to review more from this team, who made an excellent first impression on me by calling out the tiresome nature of endless comic book conflicts. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Wes Greer Aug 31, 2020

    Overall, Justice League #52 is a nice change of pace from what we have been reading lately in Justice league and takes us on a more emotional ride that really makes readers think about their own lives which is something that only great writers are able to pull off. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 1, 2020

    Robson Rocha delivers some hauntingly beautiful art in this issue. While the characters all look dynamic and there are great details in every panel, the depiction of Batman as a protective force for young Bruce was gorgeously rendered. Read Full Review

    This isn't a terrible issue by any stretch, but it's hard to think that it'll have any real impact besides posing a rhetorical question asked many times before. Read Full Review
