    Justice League #74 ends this story and Bendiss run on the book. Its a beautiful issue with amazing art. Bendiss run on Justice League has been a lot better than it gets credit for, and this issue is a fantastic example of why. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 15, 2022

    Justice League #74 is a satisfying end to the arc. Bendis pulls out a conclusion of great magnitude. The characters are fantastic and the team-up between the two teams really works well. It avoids standard tropes of conflict between the groups and they function largely like an extended roster of the team. Whilst the comic loses ground, the art saves it by being jaw-dropping. Lupacchino and Von Grawbadger are terrific artists who can carry a Justice League book on their own. But Kudranskis art style is one of the most awe-inspiring I have ever seen. It is certainly not for everyone, but it is definitely worth a try. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Trudeau Mar 17, 2022

    Justice League rebounds slightly from a rough previous issue as Leagues of Chaos reaches its end. The issue, supersized though it is, is still overstuffed, but is still far more coherent than #73. There is some potential here, but gaunt plot development prior to issue #74 ensured that this arc would be a miss. The Bendis Justice League dies as it lived, promising but unfulfilled.

    It's a muddled mess " as was Bendis' entire tenure on the series. Read Full Review

    Much of Justice League #74 is steeped in murky darkness to achieve an evident good vs. evil contrast, but unfortunately, those shadowy scenes do little to help readability. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Apr 8, 2022

    Justice League #74 was emblematic of Brian Michael Bendis' entire run on the title. Bendis is great at producing ideas with a lot of potential, but he often has trouble realizing that potential. I think the main problem was that he had trouble remembering that this title was about the Justice League first and foremost. However, I do wish him well on his other projects. Hopefully, they will work out better for him. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 15, 2022

    While you may have found something in this Justice League arc interesting and thought that maybe a deeper dive into those concepts would make a cool story, what you get for an ending is Naomi saving the day while everything else is thrown away to say that Naomi is the greatest. The art in this issue is rough and the story is ridiculous, but hey, at least it's over. Read Full Review
