Did you read the write-up on issue #5? Do you really think anything's gotten better for the Justice League in the past two weeks? Still Force? Still a thing! Ultraviolet Galaxy Lantern? Keeps attacking! Sinestro? Total garbage! Lex Luthor and Joker? Beating everyone to the Source Wall piece. If that happens? You don't wanna know.

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Aug 15, 2018

    I feel like the excitement keeps ramping up in Justice League #6. The message that I am getting from it " to accept your faults, admit your mistakes, apologize, and move on while trying to do better " is a powerful one that befits this group of heroes and is indeed about as heroic as you can get. And it is just beautiful to look at besides. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Aug 15, 2018

    In conclusion, this issue and the arc so far have been really good. One of the aspects that I really enjoyed is that, at the end the team feels broken. Even though this isn’t the end and the team feels like they have won, there are repercussions, such as Batman’s bones being broken, Barry being affected by the still force and John Stewart becoming an ultra violet lantern. So far, this run is looking to be great. Read Full Review

    While this may not be a great selection for a new or younger reader, it still is a great story for fans that enjoy sinking their teeth into a deeper story, especially if they like adventures on a huge, cosmic scale. This title has definitely brought DC's premier team back to the forefront of DC's lineup. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Kevin Gunn Aug 20, 2018

    It was nice to break up the action in issue #5, but it's also great for the story to pick back up where it left off. A well-written plot continues to unfold right before our eyes. The artwork is still top-tier. Since this is the fifth installment of this arc, we should see a closing on the horizon. If it is like the rest of this story, we should be in for a treat.

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Aug 15, 2018

    Snyder has been masterful at creating plenty of organic twists and turns. There really are no weak players. Generally, with issues like this that have over a dozen active characters, there is usually at least one plotline that just isn't engaging as the rest, and I really have to slog through the pages until something more interesting happens. With this storyline, everything is essential. Everyone has an important part to play, and I look forward to every character's upcoming actions. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Terrence Sage Aug 15, 2018

    Justice League remains at the top of the heap of DC books you need to read with every new issue because Snyder and the Art Team are crafting a title for the ages with an attitude of taking old characters and throwing them into new and unexplored depths with some grand cosmic ramifications in the process. That's life for you. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Callum Riley Aug 17, 2018

    The story suffers from a lack of bombast for the first half of this issue as it's still catching up with the events of the previous 5, but picks up for the end. We see some encouraging development for characters that haven't had much time to shine so far and are going to move to more significant roles later. There is nothing else to say about Jimenez and Sanchez other than they knock it out of the park like they always do. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 14, 2018

    Justice League #6 is another impressive entry in Scott Snyders new take on DCs premiere superhero team. The story begins to turn slowly, and the Legion of Doom is given some moments to remind us why its membership is among DCs greatest villains. Jimenez and Sanchez give the book a damn good treatment, and the book earns a recommendation. Give it a read when it comes out tomorrow. Read Full Review

    While we do get more pieces to the puzzle this issue, we're still left wondering what the hell the puzzle is in the first place and what we're supposed to do with these new pieces.  With that though, you get some stunning art and some amazing fights in this issue.  I'm just getting a little tired at not understanding the story that we're dealing with.

    ohhaimark Aug 15, 2018

    This was another good issue. I think the issue does an amazing job of leaving an impression after you read it. Scott Snyder's writing is powerful and epic. I can practically hear the dramatic music in the background of the issue. Although it was verging on being filler, the Joker-esque focus of the issue does (kind of?) pay off at the end and it is effective for the most part. The characterization of the Justice League was good for the most part. Batman sort of reminds me of the Batman from the first story arc of All Star Batman, which is not a good portrayal in my opinion. His jokes and personality don't fit with the characterization of the true Batman in my opinion. Just listen to one of his lines and you will understand my problems with more

    "With friends like you, who needs enemies?"

    The Totality continues. Some of the panels in this issue have good action on them and with Jorge Jimenez's art, it looks just astonishing. Same goes for the way he shows characters. Batman, Grodd look just great. But for me, the stand out is the Joker. He looks creepy, scary and just overall unsettling. The same thing can be said about jokerized Martian Manhunter.

    As for the rest of the issue, it is not as great. The story gets clearer, even though more new things get introduced, and revelation near the ending promises some interesting developments in the next issue, it still suffers from two things.

    First, both the story and premise are not engaging. With Metal an more

    GTMedia Reviews Dec 25, 2018

    The cover for Justice League #6 is a bit of a red herring. It depicts a potential slugfest between Wonder Woman and Aquaman orchestrated by Gorilla Grodd. Even though the cover isn't really a representation of the comic, the issue does manage to be pretty awesome in its own right.

    Standout characters in the conflict are the Joker and Lex Luthor. They both seem to be operating on another level right now and it's good to see human characters able to cause the JL so much trouble. 


    The Legion of Doom is on the verge of winning as the Justice League desperately try to stop them. Every time that the League appears to be gaining any sort of momentum, they come up short. 

    The issue does a great job of sub more

    Very solid issue, both storywise and visually. Heroes finally found a way to overcome the monstrous odds of their villains united, and it surely feels earned. The action is far from over, and the cliffhanger definitely leaves you wanting more, thus it's safe to say, the run so far is absolutely worth picking.
