Introducing…the United! This all-new all-star group of alien warriors represents all voices in the newly formed United Planets. A galactic Justice League, if you will. The first Legion of Super-Heroes? Sort of. The United comes to the new Justice League for help because the biggest threat to the universe is on the loose, and all roads lead to…Superman. All this, and Aquaman has some surprising news. This big, bold, universe-spanning story serves as a perfect hopping-on point for fans curious where their favorite DC heroes go next!

    Doctor Fate Vol. 2: Prisoners of War for Khalid NassourDay of Vengeance for Ragman and several members of Justice League Dark (or Shadow Pact)Ragman (2017-2018)The Demon by Jack KirbyJustice League #64 is a good starting point for anyone looking to get into the book. It's got something for everyone. I especially liked the Cover B by Jason Howard (@theJasonHoward) with our warriors -- Hawkgirl, Aquaman and Hippolyta -- looking mighty. Batman's involvement in Justice League Dark was a really nice restart to the ongoing Merlin story. I could have read an entire issue devoted to Justice League Dark. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 7, 2021

    Justice League #64 is yet another example of why the Justice League is so good right now. Bendis does a great job with this issue, presenting a new threat and building in some hooks to keep readers coming back. Pughs art is pretty great throughout and really helps the script shine. The JLD backup, as usual, is the icing on the cake. V is proving to be a master of the magical side of the DC Universe, and bringing Batman in is an inspired idea, even if hell only be around for a little bit. Kumars art hits all the right spots. Justice League is the best team book on the market. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jul 7, 2021

    In Justice League #64, the Ram V's backup story steals the show. At this point, I think DC might be better off moving Justice League Dark to the main story and Bendis' "Continuing Adventures of Naomi Guest-Starring the Justice League" to the shorter backup slot. I'd definitely give Ram V's story a 5/5 on its own, but Bendis' story is only mediocre this time around. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 6, 2021

    Pugh does a great job with the art in the Justice League story. The visuals are vibrant and lively. Kumar does a brilliant job with the art in the other story and I love the tone and mood set with the imagery. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jul 6, 2021

    Justice League #64 is a promising start to a new arc. Bendiss strengths as a writer are highlighted in this issue, as the character interactions are stunning, and the scale of the stake is exciting. The downside is that the art clutters the page in very brief instances, but Pugh and Filardi work well together, creating alien beings and cities. There just needs to be more clarity and space given between the members of the United Planets; otherwise, they get in each others' way. And the Justice League Dark backup story showed much more energy and excitement than the other chapters preceding it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 6, 2021

    Both the Justice League and Justice League Dark stories this issue were seriously lacking in my opinion, where Bendis is purposely just elevating his own ideas to the detriment of the League, while Batman took the spotlight during the JLD story, giving our actual team barely any panel play. Thankfully the art was decent throughout the book but I seriously need more out of both the main story and backup to this book because it's Justice League and it deserves better than what we're getting.

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Jul 7, 2021

    This is getting frustrating. I can't keep spending every second week telling you to wait on a story that I genuinely think is really good" but how can I recommend you buy this when I don't think the main comic is worth the time? That might be a question you have to answer for yourselves. As for me, I'm going to keep making a fuss until Justice League Dark goes back to being the solo title it has a right to be. Just make sure to buy it, if and when that happens. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 6, 2021

    As usual, JLD just gets going in advancing the story before Ram V has to throw in some forced cliffhanger. Were reaching past the point when Justice League Dark needs its own title or at the very least switching which Justice League story gets the main chapter. Read Full Review
