    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 8, 2017

    Fans of either team should be all over this crossover. It's meeting expectations and delivering a high-quality team-up of two of pop culture's biggest groups. And for fans of both, this is the team-up you never knew you needed to see until reading this crossover. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - John Newby Feb 10, 2017

    Two issues in, Tom Taylor is knocking it out of the park with Justice League vs. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The story is so entertaining, and the interactions between every character just make each panel better. This series is much better than it has any right to be, and that fact makes me so happy.

    The Pop Break - Andrew Fontana Feb 8, 2017

    The success or failure of this issue's art rests on whether it can meld the tone of two very distinct franchises. This Byrne does expertly. The showdown between the League and the Dinozords is rendered in the appropriate scale, as is the subtle differences in musculature between the teenaged rangers and the more adult DC heroes. Byrne's stylized pencils makes the action in this issue explosive and dynamic. Read Full Review

    FreakSugar - Jed W. Keith Feb 10, 2017

    Justice League/Power Rangers #2 is an ebullient yarn for folks who want a comic that is a breezy tale filled with fun character moments and want to know what happens when the Flash watches from afar when it’s “morphin time.” Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Feb 8, 2017

    The plot thickens as Lord Zedd finds an ally in a classic enemy of the Justice League. Also, the Power Rangers and the Justice Leaguers put aside their snap judgments and realize they are all on the same side–glad we got that out of the way! Tom Taylor keeps this romp light-hearted and Stephen Bryne's visuals emphasize big and bright action–and even bigger and brighter colors in the tradition of both superhero teams' original Saturday morning incarnations. If you like bold action and a traditional us vs. them narrative, you'll love this all-ages pleaser. Okay, so there's no real big surprises here, but Taylor may yet have something up his plotting sleeve. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Feb 8, 2017

    With two issues in, this series is a lot of fun, and I especially enjoyed the light hearted way it poked fun at Batman and how he would come off as a villain to the Power Rangers. The writing by Tom Taylor is sharp and witty, and the art by Stephen Byrne gives a cartoon style with bright colors that fits the book perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone just looking for a fun good time. This reminds me of the days of Saturday morning or after school cartoons. It's the perfect way to do a miniseries like this.

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Feb 8, 2017

    Overall issue two remains decent, albeit a little similar tothis series' first outing last month, but what I'm most excited about, now thatthe formal introductions are out of the way, is that we can finally get down tochewing gum and kicking ass now … I'm not even sure they sell gum in Gotham so that'sgood news for us readers here for the action.

    Justice League/Power Rangers #2 is a bit light on plot, but provides a hightail adventure one would expect when bringing these two teams together. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Feb 8, 2017

    This is a solid issue. The art is fantastic all throughout and brings an energy to the book. Thereare some fun interactions, especially with Kimberly, and I like what's happening with Lord Zedd. The book is a little dull since so much of it is taken up by something I don't care about but I imagine most people will enjoy that aspect a lot. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Feb 8, 2017

    The story set up thus far is as static as any iteration of a predictable episode from Saban's long running series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 8, 2017

    A step back from its debut, this installment fails to fully take advantage of the opportunities the book's pairing presents. Tom Taylor's characters are mostly true to form, but their shared interactions offer little sense of momentum beyond that expected. Stephen Byrne's art fares a little better, but at times his clean style and minute detail comes up lacking. It's still an overall pretty read, but one yet to fully deliver on its promise.

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 8, 2017

    This is a lackluster second issue in a series that opened in a big and fun way. It follows the crossover script to a T and looks flat or too basic. The dialogue and basic feel of each team is on point, but it's not enough to make this a must buy by any means. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards Feb 8, 2017

    One last gripe. Zedd manages to get some "monsters" to "make grow", but they didn't even come up with more than one design. So, when he sends multiple of them out to attack, we just get the same generic octopus monster repeatedly. That is so boring and disappointing, especially considering that the various Power Rangers series have tended to provide numerous monsters with specific and unique designs. So yeah, you don't need to read this book. And if you want to anyway, seriously, just wait for the trade. It's clearly written for that, and, once again, there's just not enough here to bother waiting a month in-between installments. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Feb 8, 2017

    I hate being negative but I feel this is justified with this book. I'm a fan of both franchises, I grew up in the 90's when Power Rangers were the hottest kids show, so I am left wondering once again: who is this for? I am sure there are some people happy with it, but personally as a fan I am left with a bad taste in my mouth. It wasn't good, it was boring and predictable. Such a waste. Read Full Review

    The battle between both teams was so epic! I'm also digging the team up of Lord Zedd and Brainiac. Can't wait to see the league and rangers teaming up next issue.

    It's very typical crossover stuff that doesn't take a lot of thought to write but then again this comic is supposed to be fun and that it is. I grew up with the original MMPR and then Bruce Timm gave me Justice League Unlimited and my childhood would never be the same. This kind of gives me an idea about what a mashup between those two universes would be like. Also it's impossible to properly give all 12 characters and the villains involved their due in just 6 issues, so I already know this will be light on exposition and just a ton of action sequences. That's why Batman/TMNT crossover last year was better because it focused on just a handful of characters, and had villain teamups that made more sense. I also didn't realize how ridiculous Z more
