    If you like this roster and you can bear some bad characterization, give it a try. Otherwise, skip it. Read Full Review

    Comix 411 - David Torres Sep 7, 2009

    I'm disappointed in James Robinson. His Starman is an all-time favorite of mine and his work has been subpar since his return to comics. Hopefully the story turns around. If it doesn't, I won't be picking up the Justice League when he starts writing the book. Don't recommend this book, but if you're at your local comic store, flip through it because it's great artwork. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Sep 2, 2009

    Treasured heroes commiting venal acts on flimsy pretexts to counter a villain who isn't that intimidating, powerful or multidimensional… Twenty-two pages of lost opportunity for DC. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Sep 3, 2009

    The sad thing? There are a couple of good, cute moments. Congo Bill's answer to Starman's, "What are you going to do?" made me smile, and Charity being as flabbergasted as the reader by Bobo Bennetti's dialogue was funny. (Where was Charity for the rest of this comic, though?) But this is still not a very good comic, and it makes me worried for how "Justice League of America" will fare when Robinson takes over in a few months. With its macho blustering of looking for justice, it reminds me of all of the weak points of "Extreme Justice" with none of its good points. That was over a decade ago. Haven't we moved beyond this?

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Sep 3, 2009

    Mauro Cascioli's painted artwork certainly conveys the dark, bitter atmosphere that serves as the book's foundation, but it's stiff. And the opening page's focus on Supergirl's breasts and bare midriff is irksome and runs contrary to the intense and tense mood called for by the story. Furthermore, It threatens to undo good will that's been sown by creators on the regular Supergirl series, who have purposefully set out to tone down the sexualization of its teenage title character. this issue includes backup material just as those before did, and while I see the value in presenting extra background on key characters, Robinson's essay and the brief origin story feel more like filler than bonus material.

    IGN - Dan Phillips Sep 2, 2009

    Judging from the issue's back-up text piece, Robinson has a strong passion for Prometheus, and really wants to bring him back to A-list status. Sadly, his efforts might be doing more harm than good. Prometheus' mere presence in this mess of a comic almost undoes all the damage control Sterling Gates did in the recent Faces of Evil one-shot. It's that bad. Read Full Review

    Maybe the plot and direction of this series will turn around, but Im pretty much gone at this point. Ill still read, and rave about what Robinson doing in Superman, but Cry for Justice is just plain, very oddly, and surprisingly bad. Read Full Review
