    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 2, 2022

    Justice League #73 is a well-paced middle chapter of a story. Bendis shines in stories where he can't meander along, and that's on full display in this issue. Kudranski and Lupacchino do a great job on the art, with Kudranski killing it. All in all, an entertaining issue. Read Full Review

    Justice League #73 manages to strike a balance between two of the most unique parts of the Justice League: the fights, of course, and the unusual relationship between so many different types of heroes who've come together. Read Full Review

    A decent penultimate issue, but Bendis still has a lot to tie up. Read Full Review

    Each of the artists does a great job of complementing the others with art that is visually thrilling and beautifully detailed. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 1, 2022

    Justice League #73 continues the exciting arc but needs to be careful. Whilst the action and the grandiosity of the comic are accentuated by Bendis with some awe-inspiring standoffs and dialogue, it faces the danger of running out of steam early. The dependence on excessive dialogue and lengthy diatribes can kill the speed. What saves the issue is the superb art on display that can continue to maintain interest when the writing falters.

    Justice League #73 looks stunning, but unfortunately the writing holds little depth. Brian Michael Bendis is an idea machine. However, he frequently is unable to do much with his good ideas. He still has one last issue left, so maybe he might be able to save this story in the conclusion. Overall, I'd rate this issue rather low, but I have to add points for the great work of the art team.

    Justice League has been a slog a consistent one, but a slog all the same. Thankfully theres just one more issue left in Bendis amazing effort to make this run of Justice League one of the worst. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Trudeau Mar 3, 2022

    This comic book is a disaster. That was always going to be a possibility given the ambition of the plot laid out by #73. Still, this effort is subpar by the standard of any Big Two comic book, let alone one with Justice League on the cover. Joshua Williamson has his work cut out for him if he means to salvage a major event from the rubble that is Bendis's year on Justice League. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 1, 2022

    While I thought that the previous issue of this arc was probably the best issue that this Bendis run has seen, this issue made me lose all hope for this arc in general as it goes back to normal Bendis tropes that just drag everything down. The art thankfully is still great but everything else is pretty much just nonsense. Read Full Review
