    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres Mar 16, 2014

    Since the first issue, both the League and readers alike were led to believe that the current Justice League members were simply clones of the originals. It quickly became apparent to some readers that there was something more at play, but few, if any, would have guessed the truth about their shocking and horrific secret origin. Another interesting development is the introduction of the team's newest member. The new information about their origin this raises numerous questions and introduce some intriguing ideas to explore in the future. It will be exciting to see the ramifications this has and how it will impact the characters. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Mar 15, 2014

    My only problem with the comic is that I wish we got to see flashbacks when Ariel explains the teams origins. If we did it would help some readers who haven't read the series before. Speaking of which this is an okay if a little confusing. I would suggest to pick up the other issues at your local comic book store. It brings in a better understanding of the series.I would suggest to pick this up as we get a cool Green Lantern fight along with finally learning about where the team comes from. It's a fun read and I think the origin is an interesting twist that hasn't been done before in comics as far as I can tell. Read Full Review

    In this issue we got to see more of Locus being insane and clingly, and we got to spend some more time on Green Lantern who didn't do very much up until now. There were a few long stretches of dialogue that slowed the issue down a bit but there were more than enough awesome moments to keep you turning the page. The surprise towards the end of the issue left me excited for the next issue and I can tell there are only more surprises ahead. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Jake Tanner Mar 15, 2014

    This series has J.M. DeMatteis's unique brand of humor and a story that you don't want to miss. If you think you know the Justice League, trust me, you don't. This story could go absolutely anywhere and that's exactly what makes it so much fun. There's a ton of action, you don't know who's going to live and who's going to die, and the story has plenty of intrigue laced throughout. It's only four issues in, so it will be easy enough to catch up guys! You don't want to miss this! Read Full Review

    "The Terrible Truth" does not solve any of our heroes' problems, but it does create another interesting layer to the story that they will have to come to terms with. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 12, 2014

    Still, it's difficult not to be excited about the future of the series after reading these pages. The writers have clearly only shown us the tip of the iceberg in terms of the conflict and the cast involved. And artist Howard Porter is settling in nicely. He brings an energetic vibe to the book, captures the dank future setting well, and his struggles with female facial work seen early on seem to have mostly receded. With the first arc finished, the future is looking bright for this team (metaphorically, if not literally). Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Bryan Huth Mar 18, 2014

    Justice League 3000 #4 marks a small average moment in this unique series. With the main focus of this issue being to answer the biggest question of the series, the rest of the issue feels dull in comparison to the previous issues of the series. With the return of Barry Allen, the escalated situations for Green Lantern and the other Justice League members, and the introduction of a new member,Justice League 3000 seems to be reaching the climax of its first arc very soon. Stay tuned to We The Nerdy for more DC news and reviews. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 14, 2014

    Justice League 3000 #4 is full of answers, but it's also full of talking and more talking.  Though there is not much action to speak of, this issue opens up the readers eyes and adds another fan favorite character to the team.  I suggest you check it out if you like something familiarly different.

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Mar 14, 2014

    Overall, I'm still struggling to define why exactly I'm coming to this book even though I'm not enjoying it so much. Particularly since I've cut out other series for less reasons. We shall see. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 13, 2014

    The final page of "Justice League 3000" brings the debut of a new member of the crew, flinging open the doors for this series to stretch beyond the five characters it debuted with four months ago. After the exposition in this issue, the next promises to be an action-packed thriller, spanning from one end of the galaxy to the other while giving the wide array of characters created by Giffen, DeMatteis and Porter a chance to flex their muscles. There appears to be no shortage of conflict on deck, as "Justice League 3000" #4 brings this series to a dynamic story beat while showcasing the secrets, origins and oppositions waiting to be investigated further.

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Mar 19, 2014

    Artist Howard Porter continues to use his new style on this book. It's a much different look than what fans may be used to from his work on the 1990′s JLA book. It's a rougher line that looks as though it shows the pencil layouts underneath. Although his line is not as clean as it was on JLA, he packs the page with backgrounds, and gives you a sense of the surrounding world. At times the pencils do look rushed and a bit messy, but the overall look works. I'm pleasantly surprised by this book and hope this creative team can continue to surprise. If they can, this could turn out to be an underrated hit. It's a book with the potential for anything to happen, and that's exciting and unexpected. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Mar 17, 2014

    We might care more about the characters' origins if we cared more about the characters. So far, Giffen and DeMatteis have not made the Justice League a likable bunch of people, so why should we feel for their situation? It's uneven plotting and characterization that really sink the issue. I like the concept; I think it's more clever than "clones from the past," but if we're stay on with the series we need a focal point around which to attach, and so for, this has failed to materialize.
