    Sometimes the journey is better than the destination, while other times it's exactly the opposite, and for Justice League, it's the latter that is true. Read Full Review

    Both artists deliver some awesome imagery throughout the issue. Godlewski's art is perfect for the tone of the story. Kumar's visuals are dark, powerful and exciting. Read Full Review

    Bendis continues to be great at dialogue and not so great at action and plotting, which works for a quirkier Justice League book. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 29, 2021

    Justice League #68 is a good comic, especially the backup. The main story is uneven. It starts well, but the latter portions of it slow the whole thing down. The art is pretty great, so that helps. The backup is still amazing. Theres really no other way to describe it. It really buoys the whole book. Read Full Review

    Bendis' story is an improvement overall, but there's still room for improvement. I'd give his story a 35, but I'll add another point for Godlewski's superb artwork. As usual, Ram V and Sumit Kumar's backup story earns a solid 5/5, giving Justice League #68 a 4/5 overall. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Sep 28, 2021

    Justice League #68 is a chaotic mess. There is a collection of brilliant ideas and a horde of excellent, beloved characters, with some dialogue that can be fun. It should be noted that an all-encompassing story across multiple books is not inherently wrong, and can be excellent if necessary. But Bendis is doing more than one of these in the same book and is going far too fast with it. It is detracting from what was initially a promising start for this new team. To go from a cosmic genre straight into a spy thriller in the same comic, without warning is too jarring for the reader. And this story cant be full-sized because the Justice League Dark story, great as it is, takes up page space. Read Full Review

    So the issues closes with me smiling which is a good thing. There are other parts I also thought funny in this like Firestorm saying he isn't on the roster this year.  So some good moments. But in the end, the major plots of the last arc were swept under the rug. And the end of Checkmate was revealed.  Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 28, 2021

    While the Justice League Dark story was fun and the art was great throughout both stories in this book, the main Justice League part of this series just continues to disappoint as we make the heroes that we want to see look bad and focus more on Bendis' creations that never felt thought out and always come off as ridiculous. Not only do we have to deal with nonsense Checkmate stuff in its own book this week but we have to do it again in this book and it's just too much nonsense for one week. Read Full Review

    It's getting difficult finding ways of repeating the same things over and over " give Justice League Dark its own book, pick up the pace, you know the drill. Maybe next issue, something could actually happen? I'm not holding my breath. Read Full Review

    If Justice League werent a flagship DC title, I would have stopped reading it months ago. Its clear at this stage its never going to improve under Bendis watch so readers holding out for a miracle would be better served waiting until Bendis leaves. Read Full Review
