    With each issue of Justice League Incarnate, Williamson and Culver continue to build the story started in Infinite Frontier #0. I am eagerly awaiting this summer's major event, when we finally learn what all this is building towards. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 1, 2022

    If you're looking for epic comics, there is nothing bigger on the shelf this week than Justice League Incarnate #4. This book serves as a nice recap of the multiverse in DC Comics with some wickedly cool art from cover to cover. Justice League Incarnate is breathtakingly epic and all about the spectacle.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 1, 2022

    All the artists deliver some great visuals throughout the issue, and I like how the different styles complement each other as the story progresses. Im usually not a huge fan of multiple artists on one story, but this works because the styles dont clash with each other and take me away from the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 1, 2022

    While Justice League Incarnate #4 recaps a whole lot of DC Comics at the start, once we get to the actual story, you know what hits the fan!  Seriously, this issue has at least two moments bigger than anything in over a year!  Maybe Joshua Williamson finally realized that he might have to shock everyone to take notice, and hopefully, they do.  I am looking forward to seeing how he tops this in the next issue.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 1, 2022

    One of the chaotic books to come out of DC in a long time, this comic has delivered whiplash with every issue. Coming off a multiverse-hopping issue, though, this one is surprisingly laid back"even as it delivers some massive exposition about the future of the DCU. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Feb 4, 2022

    Reading Justice League Incarnate #4 felt a lot like reading old comics from the '70s and '80s. Just incredibly fantastical images coupled with a thick, magical language. It's the type of storytelling that set comics apart back in the day from other mediums, and it was cool to see Williamson and the artists try to tap into that for this issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Feb 1, 2022

    Justice League Incarnate #4 revisits the past and present of the DC Universe to set up its finale, which very well could affect the future of DC's heroes. With one issue left in the series, I look forward to how the second part of Williamson's "Infinite" saga wraps up. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Feb 3, 2022

    After a strong start, ‘Justice League Incarnate' #4 marks a decline in this five-issue series. It's another DC comic book series that relies too much on Darkseid who I feel is becoming too overused across the DCU whenever a crisis of this magnitude occurs. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 5, 2022

    Remixes many of the previous Crises into one ongoing storyline, but doesn't quite pull it off, and while I'm not that upset about the loss of a team member, I'm worried how this is all going to pan out. Read Full Review

    Great issue. First couple issues, I enjoyed the ride even though I thought the plot didn’t make a whole lot of sense. This issue manages to tie it all together.

    I liked this. While the narration was at times a bit stiff, it all made sense. We all know Thomas Wayne isn't really dead since we'll have Geoff Johns' and Jeremy Adams' Flashpoint Beyond book (which I'm pretty excited about) so there's that. Unfortunately I don't care all that much about the JL Incarnate characters, they're pretty bland, except for Thomas. But the story is a decent one.

    This was pretty good, but... it's slowly morphing into the mush that DC cosmic events have been lately. Please don't be Metal 3.

    Really enjoyed the first half even if the retcon was a bit unnecessary

    However, the second half just got too boring and silly for me

    The beginning of this issue was kinda boring, just remembering all Crisis until now, but after that I liked very much. I love JL Incarnate, and if the team's limited series is not epic and great in it's totality, at least is very fun to read.

    I facepalmed through this entire issue.

    They recycled the stupid perpetua whisper from Death metal and now apparently The Great Darkness is the Machiavellian Man Behind The Curtain puppeteering every single cosmic villain in the DCU since Crisis. At this point I'm surprised they didn't include Convergence Brainiac or Telos in the lineup!

    The utter ignorance on all of the subtext from Multiversity breaks my heart. The Oblivion Machine, the Empty Hand, and even Final Crisis are all stripped of narrative power to prop up Alan Moore's giant fuck you to apocalypse stories. And they made Doctor Manhattan a pawn of The Great Darkness. I'm fucking done.

    Chris Burnham's art is magnificent and I will buy anything with more

    $20 too much to get this far - I am done. Unpopular opinion: Darkseid is one-dimensional, lame, and boring character: "all evil," (which is never described) meaning DC writers never have to actually take a stand on ANYTHING, let alone something "heroic" on Earth. "Darkseid is:"... "Safe (dull) Sci-Fi solution to write about 'heroism.'" The point of this series for was to read about the actual Justice League Incarnate from multiple dimensions. But now.. $20 later... on this very short series... all we have is Darkseid as a "hero" (gag), who is now mercifully squashed (by a worse, more nonsensical alien "villain".)

    I mean, i honestly don't care about the latest "all evil" alien god-thing. It is just lame, one-dimensional, non-crea more
