    Justice League Incarnate #3 is another great issue of Williamson and Culver's cosmic story. It's becoming clear that they are setting up a major DC event, likely centred around the Great Darkness. Whatever they have planned, I'm completely hooked. Read Full Review

    The mini this spins out of had enough plots and surprises to shake a stick at, but somehow this one has gone even bigger and infused the story with a massive dose of Morrison-esque no-holds-barred energy. Read Full Review

    Our heroes are scattered across the multiverse, allowing fans more opportunities to visit further parts of the DC multiverse in the process. Another solid issue with more inspiring artistic choices too. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 4, 2022

    Justice League Incarnate #3 scatters its team across the Multiverse and explores a wide variety of DC's heroes and villains in the process. With the issue revealing an "Oblivion Machine" that threatens all of reality, it looks like JLI will need to speed up the reassembly process if they want to save all of existence. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Jan 5, 2022

    Traveling to different universes also gives the artists the opportunity to convey the differences between worlds with different stylistic choices in the art. That's why we've got five different artists on this issue alone. Each one brings a unique aesthetic to their world, hitting home the point that everyone is in a different place. This is a technique I see a lot in comics, and it never ceases to amaze me. It's so simple, yet so effective. Read Full Review

    Justice League Incarnate still has immense promise, but it needs a little more stability to be back in the upper crest of DC titles. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 4, 2022

    Justice League Incarnate #3 is about meta-spectacle, and while I like having fun as much as the next guy, I need Williamson and Culver to tighten the screws on this book quickly because it feels like it's about to fly off the rails.  Maybe I'm just looking for something that isn't there, but this should be the big book at DC Comics right now, but it sometimes doesn't feel like it knows that.

    There are still some fun bits as the story jumps between universes but your milage will vary wildly based on how well you can stomach that aforementioned plot. Read Full Review

    Outstanding issue. I loved every panel and I've really missed that maquiavelic Darkseid.

    I really, really love Justice League Incarnate, the best JL so far in my opinion. And this issue showed us why the very concept of this team is so great: finally someone is exploring DC's other Earths since Multiversity! Morrison let it all ready for other authors to play, and it take so long, but this issue did this greater then the previous two. Very excited for the end of the story, and can't wait to see others stories with JLI.

    Esse quadrinho deveria ser grande, mas o roteiro não consegue passar isso.

    Pretty bad dialogue and messy plot that's all over the place but I liked how he writes Darkseid, so that's a plus. Kinda laughed a little at how "Ulrich SAXman" and that beard didn't scream "Darkseid" to Cal and Maya, they're not the sharpest tools in the box, are they?

    Williamson's script is extremely lacking and the plot's pretty mundane. The arrival of the Empty Hand should be hype af but I can't help but expect he won't be used to his full potential. The meta-commentary is tired and base-level but I appreciate his attempts to include it in as a plot point. I gave this issue a point higher since they included Crafty the Coyote from the greatest single issue of all time "Animal Man #5".

    Williamson need to stop with the Morrison impression, it's tiresome.

    I didn't even mention The Batwoman Who Laughs in the last review. Why the hell would they include her? Everyone was sick of BWL by the time he thankfully went away. It just seems like this is something devised in a rush to fill the gap between Infinite Frontier and the next Crisis, and wasn't originally intended to be the next step. I don't know. The stuff with President Superman and Doctor Multiverse was neat, but I literally just read How To Read Comics the Marvel Way, and it did that idea already. I don't know, I'm really bummed out that this series is such a letdown. Its worst offense really is the dialogue. I cannot get over how bad it is. I don't understand. Was that even given a second look? Sometimes writers write poor dialogue as a more

    Theres one or two okay concepts to be found in this issue but the execution and script were pretty bad

    Oh Geez. A multiverse-trash dumpster on fire disaster by Dennis Culver (clearly from Earth 33), with Joshua Williamson putting his name on it for the $$. What a shame. At least we learned that DC Comics is Darkseid's secret identity. Written like someone was drunk and started throwing out random ideas, what a "Cracked" Magazine parody of Justice League Incarnate might look like by someone who wasn't funny. So much promise for this series too. And FIVE different artists for 27 pages. Justice League Incarnate Issue #2 was bad, and Justice League Incarnate #3 was train-wreck. I can just imagine what issue #4 will be like.

    "Of course, the Batwoman who laughs would survive. Pft!"

    Justice League Incarnate had the capability more
