It's a locked-room murder mystery in the Hall of Justice! Superman, an investigative journalist; Batman, the World's Greatest Detective; the Flash; a CSI technician; Wonder Woman; a mystical detective for the Justice League Dark; and Green Lantern, an intergalactic police officer, must put their heroic minds together to solve the case. The Hall houses some of the greatest artifacts in the DC Universe-but also its deadliest. Who is the victim? Who is the culprit? And what is the motive? Can the Justice League put together the clues to solve the mystery before the murderer strikes again-and at them? Their lives depend on it!

    In Justice League Annual #2, Robert Venditti demonstrates that you don't necessarily need a complex, Earth-shaking plot to produce an excellent Justice League comic. Often a well-written straightforward story with some depth to it can do the job just as well, if not better. Read Full Review

    Justice League Annual #2 is an exceptional team book doing the extra work to remind us how these characters can sue their powers together. If you like your superheroes working together you'll love this. Justice League Annual #2 earns its place as one of the best one-shot team books ever created. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Oct 14, 2020

    Overall, we're giving this book a recommend. It's been too long that a comic tells a story all at once, and also be a book that any age reader can pick up and enjoy. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 29, 2020

    Watching the heroes pushed to their limits is entertaining, although it maybe comes together in a little too easy a way, complete with the heroes talking about all they've learned at the end. It's not a groundbreaking issue by any means, but it is an effective done-in-one spotlight for the five most iconic heroes in the Justice League. Pretty much what an annual is supposed to be.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 30, 2020

    So, is Justice League Annual #2 worth the read? It surely is! This turned out to be so much more than what it seems on the surface, and didn't forget that this was a superhero story either. At the end of the day it was action-packed, but also wholesome storytelling. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Sep 29, 2020

    The second Justice League annual is an easy read and a fun mystery. It plays on my feelings of nostalgia towards the Justice League stories I grew up with, and even includes some of those themes and ideas. While it doesn't do anything bombastic or deep, it is a solid story from start to finish that doesn't require you to have any knowledge of what's going on in the rest of the universe right now. That makes it great to read if you're looking for something short, or just a fresh story with no strings attached. Read Full Review

    While the Justice League series feels mostly irrelevant at the moment (a consequence of the ongoing Dark Metal event), if you want straightforward superhero fun, you'll enjoy this comic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 29, 2020

    While I do enjoy the art in this issue, the overall plot does nothing for the characters and only manages to tie into what Venditti did in his short run on Justice League instead of actually giving a compelling story or doing something that elevates our heroes instead of them coming off as cookie-cutter versions of themselves. Again though, the art was good. Read Full Review
