The superspies of Checkmate poke their sneaky noses where they do not belong, and the Justice League are NOT happy about it. In fact, most of the League isn't even happy Checkmate exists, setting up Checkmate versus the Justice League! The superspies versus the super…guys. In Justice League Dark, Zatanna is locked in a battle with the greatest sorcerer of all time-Merlin!

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Nov 17, 2021

    Justice League #69 is yet another entertaining issue of this book. While the main story has a few problems, it's still overall entertaining and different from other Justice League stories. The backup is worth the price of admission alone. This is such a good book, and that's all there is to it. Read Full Review

    The main story in Justice League #69 was an improvement, but still a bit of a mess, but the art was good. So, I'll give it a 3 out of 5. And the Justice League Dark backup story was a solid 5 out of 5 for both the story and art. I still think that Bendis puts his mind to it, he could get this title back on track. But will he?

    Hester delivers some good art in the issue. The style works well for the tone of the story. Kumar does brilliant work with the art in the JL Dark story. Its beautifully detailed and engaging. Read Full Review

    The Phil Hester art is good, but the plot doesn't advance too much and the cliffhanger comes out of nowhere. Read Full Review

    Phil Hester makes a return to Green Arrow alongside colorist Hi-Fi and inker Eric Gapstur, and while there are sequences that shine, others just don't quite click as well, especially when they involve Superman. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 16, 2021

    For anyone who's still picking up the Justice League book, I can at least tell you that you'll get an interesting cliffhanger to the JLD backup...... beyond that you'll probably have a tough time figuring out something to like about this book... I know I certainly did. The art is rough, the stories don't do much... but damn, what a JLD cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Nov 17, 2021

    A higher price point with a lower quality of storytelling and a backup that should very well be its own comic? It's not a combination I like, but it's bread and butter forJustice League. Unless something changes, that's the way it's gonna be for the forseeable future, too.I hate to say it" but, unfortunately, this book is most decidedly not nice. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 16, 2021

    DC needs to move on from Bendis with its flagship titles. Its no sense at this point to hope he can turn this run around and itd be better for everyone to just get a new writer Chip Zdarsky? to right this continually sinking ship. Read Full Review

    I'll be honest, I only bought and read this issue because of the JLD part, which I give a full 8; and that I firmly believe deserves its own issue and should not be relegated to a mere backstory.
    As for the JL part, it's a 4 for me, an uninteresting chapter, confusing at times, and unable to justify the $4.99 spent.
    As an average of the ratings from the two sites, I'd give it a 6, but since I am calling the comic "Justice League" and not "Justice League Dark", I'll give it a 5 and hope the JLD series becomes a standalone series again someday.

    I don't give 1 star reviews. Or it's exceedingly rare. I can't remember the last time I did it or really if I ever did it at all, though I'm sure I'm just forgetting something. But this comic...

    Wow. Just wow. How does this series keep getting worse? DC, whatever you owe him, pay him off to leave. Justice League has had some pretty poor runs but none of them, whether in continuity or not, has been this bad. None. Stop the bleeding DC and give us our Justice League back.

    Back to the 1-star review thing, I know I have never done it as a hit-and-run. Those 1-star non-reviews drive me up a wall and I'm not a fan of those that review bomb here.

    Conversely, I actually think okay to post a middling-to-high score w more
