    Whew! This is what a bold new direction is supposed to be, keeping the foundation of a book but shaking it up. We have a new universal threat, infused with Legion of Super-heroes elements (hurrah!). We have an unsteady team, hiding away, and being led by a young Supergirl. And we have versions of classic characters tossed into the mix of a dystopia. It all works. So if you are looking for a jumping on point, a place to swim in the deep end of DC mythology, this is the issue for you. Read Full Review

    I can't complain. I have been asking for more female-centric comic books in this industry and they're bringing it. Is it done perfectly? Not quite, but I like it. I'm getting used to it. We really haven't seen any comic books that are dominantly females as our heroes/villains and I love it. Lady Styx is a nice touch to our female Superheroes who are part of this new Justice League team. I think DC Comics gets it with this comic book; If you genuinely want to laugh and enjoy yourself reading a comic book, this is truly the one. I'm just glad I was able to read a good comic book on my birthday yesterday, haha! Definitely kept that momentum going. I'm curious to see what you all think. Do you like our new Justice League?

    The Justice League's new roster makes a plan to stop a despot. The story is great and the art good. Worth checking out. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 28, 2016

    Justice League 3001 gives us a mostly quiet issue here with it fills us in on a lot of things and sets up what's to come. The brief time with Lady Styx is intriguing with what she's had brought before her and what it could portend as things get serious. Mostly, though, we get a lot of time with the League characters as they hide and gather information while struggling with wanting to get out there and kick some ass. But it's not an easy problem to solve as Lady Styx's tendrils are into everything and she has a firm grasp. I'm definitely curious to see how it all plays out and what the end goal is here, though I can imagine it all ending in the blink of an eye with how DeMatteis and Giffen work things. With Kolins back on board for this issue it's a double win since he just ups the ante in appeal with his artwork and he doesn't disappoint here. Solid stuff all around even if it is a bit on the quieter side. Read Full Review

    A couple of hard pills to swallow still can't torpedo a moody, dark and skillfully assembled tale full of character and great art. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Papi Nacho Jan 30, 2016

    Unfortunately, this issue is pure set up. Now, I understand that this is meant to be an entry point for new readers and that they need to know who the characters are; but I like my protagonists to have agency and actually move the plot forward. Also, just like Barnaby Baganda's, Scott Kollins' artwork in character faces is not as detailed as it should be and unlike Baganda's, Kollins' scratchy style is not particularly appealing to me.
