    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jun 30, 2021

    Justice League #63 is just chock full of Justice League goodness. Bendis has been a different writer since he hit DC, and the way hes structured this book is a huge example of that. He breaks his own tropes while also indulging them, and it works very well. Marquez is better with Bonvillain, but he and Plascencia still deliver a great-looking book. The backup remains worth the full price of the issue alone, with V and Xermanico knocking it out of the park. This new era of Justice League is shaping up to be amazing. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Aug 2, 2021

    After this first arc the new Justice League is established, along with a new and interesting threat. Brian Michael Bendis has successfully started an interesting run on the title, and it will hopefully continue this trend going forward. Read Full Review

    Justice League #63 gave us a decent story from Bendis, but once again Ram V's Justice League Dark backup steals the show. The backup story is worth the price of the book alone, so Bendis' main story is just gravy. Read Full Review

    All fresh views which is going to make this League a very interesting group. And given that one of Bendis' strengths is dialogue, this is grist for the mill.  I still wish I knew what Naomi's powers are. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 22, 2021

    Marquez delivers some beautiful action beats throughout the story and the characters look great. Xermanico embraces the mood and tone of the story with the art and I love the look of each page. Read Full Review

    What stands out most about Justice League #63 is the sense of hope that permeates through every single page, as even in the darkest circumstances you feel as if the League's faith in humanity and each other never wavers. Read Full Review

    Bendis always plays fast and loose with timelines in his comics, and that means sometimes things can feel a little out of whack. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jun 22, 2021

    Justice League #63 again features two stellar stories by talented creators. The mind team tale is action-packed and expertly illustrated, wrapping up an exciting first arc for Bendis and Marquez. However, it loses track of itself for brief moments of the comic. In contrast, the backup story is struggling to implement drama because of how restrictive its space is within the book. If the comic was bumper-sized or there was a fairer split between the stories, it may be more beneficial. Because as it stands, they are harming each other. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 22, 2021

    While I loved the way that both the Justice League and Justice League Dark parts of this book looked, I felt that both the story elements were lacking and neither really did much ultimately. With the Justice League, we just continue to elevate Naomi for no real reason and this is the first bit of the Justice League Dark tale that felt like a bit of filler to me and that's disappointing because while JLD is the best part of this book, it's not better by a long shot like it usually is.

    Comic Watch - Rik Mertens Jun 22, 2021

    Unless you are a Naomi fan, buy this issue for the Justice League Dark story only. Next issue we start a new arc in the regular League story, and it can't come soon enough. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Jun 23, 2021

    It's frustrating to see that Bendis' first arc seems to spend all its time trying to get a feel for these characters and their interpersonal relationships, yet really struggles to sell any of them. I think Naomi's story is good enough to carry the issue, but this really is a Naomi story above all else " and it's hard to recommend this arc outside of that. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Jun 24, 2021

    The introductory arc comes to a lackluster close, and its ending seemed a bit abrupt, with a tone that was concrete while the action itself was shaky in its progression, surpassed only by the artwork which colorfully reflected the broadness of the narrative. The backup story, however, is as strong in contrast. The main objective of the story seems to be dragging a little, but there are multiple elements at work that serves to support the long con of the JLD's chase of Merlin and add enough action and intrigue to keep the reader interested.

    I have gone through Hitch's run. I thought it was bad but I endured it because it was the Justice League. I have gone through Priest's run. I found it weird but I read it. I have gone through Snyder's run. I found it overly ridiculous, with zero substance, all flashy, classic Scott-I--want-to-copy-other-writers'-work-and-do-it-better-but-I-can't-Snyder. I pulled through. Bendis, though, is making me drop the JL book. It's just too much and there's not a sliver of hope that it will get better. The second story is the only reason I haven't rated this with the 1 it deserved.

    the only reason why this isnt a one out of 10 is the great art and Justice League Dark. While the characters sure act like themselves, it is too humorous and drawn out for my taste.

    Brian Michael Bendis's first Justice League arc ends very unsatisfactory. The run has, up untill now, been more about a fun story with the Justice League then a deep one and that's fine. However, deep or not, you still got to wrap it up in a way people will feel it was worth reading the story and it, in my humble opinion, doesn't.

    #62 ended on a cliffhanger, the promise of a big battle between the Justice League and Zumbado, the book even starts out with a flashforward showing fallout, but the fight itself is a mess. It's not clear at all what's going on, much of it is due to the way it's drawn.
    After that it's just a lot of dialogue. It's well written dialogue, Bendis 'gets' each character pretty darn well, but it's als o more

    Seriously I am feeling way too much negativity towards Bendis for some of the wrong reasons. He's not a bad writer, he's just a very commercial one focusing on some sensational stuff. Admittedly, that's on display here with how this arc kinda wraps up to happen further down the line. That said everybody stays in character when placed into such a situation. I also admit that I preferred the Justice League Dark story where magic and art get pretty good to follow.

    Well, I'm glad Naomi Season 2 is done so we can get to Justice League, right? ...Right? The backup was clever enough, but I feel like Ram V never has enough space to do anything interesting.

    That was god-awful. DC, please get rid of Bendis or at least take him off my favorite title. This is killing me.
