    Comix 411 - David Torres Oct 10, 2009

    Whatever the case this was a pretty good issue with some amazing art work by Mauro Cascioli. James Robinson's run begins on the main Justice League comic later this month. I'll check it out. Wondering how this series will tie in with his first issue. I recommend this issue more for the art work than the story. Only the hardcore JLA fans need apply for this series so far.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Oct 9, 2009

    The story is suffering from a few missteps, but a powerhouse set of characters, a promised change in the status quo of the DCU and the art make this book worth the buy. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 9, 2009

    This issue didn't feel like much of a story to me, as most of the interesting part of this book came from Jay Garrick's quest and the interactions there. We're over the hump for the series, with only three issues remaining and I'll be interested to see if the Prometheus storyline gets any significant resolution. I am not interested in seeing Ray Palmer threaten anyone else with sinus headaches, however, and hope Robinson finds a slightly different tone for the Atom. Read Full Review

    I'm in this far, so I'll stay for the other three issues of this series, hoping things will pick up. Or at least that I'll find a character I like. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 11, 2009

    I'll tell you straight: this issue is more consistent than the previous few, but still feels like it takes place on some alternate Earth somewhere. Green Lantern is acting weird, Supergirl is acting weird, The Atom is flat-out nasty, and even those characters who are on their game seem to be oddly out of phase. The presence of Plastic Man and Zatanna in a League that seems to pre-date the breakup of the team in the JLA home title is odd, and the Hawks are a very odd addition to this team. With cameo appearances by members of the JSA, of the Teen Titans, as well as Mon-El (who is wearing his old-school costume, placing this issue in HIS past as well, at least in theory) it finally gives the story a wider-scale feel than before. A one-panel cameo of Batwoman (whom Robinson's early interviews on this limited identify as one of the members of the team) confuses me, making me wonder if the book hasn't been re-dialogued and rejiggered due to the changes in the DCU status quo. Actually, wonde Read Full Review
