    As someone who grew up with Legion and League teams splitting up in to smaller groups, as someone who loved the time when Annuals were often standalone and mostly big action, fun stories, this was a complete treat. Read Full Review

    Greene is clearly the big draw here, with fun and kinetic art that's incredibly expressive with a huge cast of characters. The plot is chaotic, more so than Bendis' stories usually are. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Feb 8, 2022

    Justice League Annual 2022 #1 will leave you smiling. It's a delightful annual that features a fantastic time-based story...The interaction between the characters makes the issue shine as Bendis bounces the heroes off of each other. The art is stunning and fills the book with an energy that drives you to keep reading. Read Full Review

    The Justice League 2022 Annual, like most of Bendis' run has some problems. However, it is one of Bendis' better efforts on the title so far. While it would be nice if he could maintain this higher level of quality going forward, the matter is moot considering that he will be moving on from the title. Hopefully, his Justice League Vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes miniseries will be more like this annual than his work on the main series. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Trudeau Feb 9, 2022

    Bendis's latest Justice League entry is not completely inept; few efforts from a writer as seasoned as him will be. That said, for the amount of rising action in this issue, the end product falls far short of the mark. The final acknowledgement that this particular issue leads up to the next Justice League event means that it probably did not need to be an expensive standalone. Surely an "alpha" one-shot could have done the job while a more memorable story made up the annual? Read Full Review

    Acting as a precursor to the Justice League/Legion of Super-Heroes crossover, the annual buckles under its own weight, but has some interesting ideas along the way. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 8, 2022

    Wonder Woman returns to the Justice League this issue but that really doesn't mean much and neither does the aspect of this that is supposed to play as a prelude to the Justice League Vs. Legion of Super-Heroes..... since all we get is a Gold Lantern mention. The art is okay overall but the story was a waste of time that just shows how much Bendis needs to be off this book.
