    In the end, the heroes of Justice League 3000 are working together to the point that they're finally putting the bad guys on the ropes and it shows that the writers are having a bit of fun when writing Justice League 3000 #9. If you were thinking of dropping the series, I suggest buying this comic before you make your decision. Read Full Review

    Justice League 3000 #9 is a good issue that may not advance the story a whole lot, but was tons of fun.  While new readers won't know what the hell is going on, Giffen and Dematteis keep rewarding those there from the beginning.  This arc is coming to an end next month and I can't wait to see what happens.

    This issue felt a little rushed to me, but with the odd layout and the inclusion of the Flash, perhaps that was the point. As the Five have developed in the narrative, they have become both less freightening and completely insurmountable. Their heaviest hitters are coming off as useless and inept, while Coeval and Convert seem just as unbeatable as ever. With all of the smoke and mirrors, I am still wondering where Firestorm is and what his contribution is going to be to the final fight with the Five. All in all, it was an ok installment in the series, but left me wanting a little more. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres Aug 9, 2014

    Giffen and DeMatteis'sJustice League 3000 has been something different than the current offerings at DC. The title goes so against the grain of their current lineup that it's likely to alienate some of its core readership. However, the series pulls in readers who want something different and fun from DC, and for those it delivers in spades. Despite the occasional bump here or there the legendary writing duo has consistently delivered enjoyable and entertaining issues while the series flies under the radar. Justice League 3000 #9 is no exception and while it may have its flaws it's not without its charm. The characters and dialogue continue to be a highlight and some of the strongest in a title DC publishes today. Fans of the series are sure to enjoy this issue but it won't win over any of its dissenting voices. Read Full Review

    A surprisingly light story with some good, if jarringly different, artwork and some strong, satisfying action, this issue of JL3K is a must-buy for anyone who has been following the series. Any new readers should just wait for the next arc. Read Full Review

    Still, credit where credit is due - I was really disappointed with Justice League 3000 when it first hit the stands, so the fact that this series is starting to warm up even a naysayer like me is a victory. Part of the problem with this series when it first began was that it was trying too hard to be the Justice League, but in the future - now that Giffen and DeMatteis are starting to add in their own spin on these characters, like a female scientist Flash or a pocket-sized Green Lantern, this series might be able to stand on its own two feet. That said, the team needs to hurry and find its own identity, fast - because nine issues to find itself is a luxury most series can't afford. Read Full Review
