    This is classical superhero action that is done right. Fun and unique characters combine with an old school plot and colourful art to form a book that is entertaining, light hearted and a little retro. The book is a good example of how you do a good superhero book, which uses elements from the past to frame a new story (and add some nostalgia) but with enough character tweaks to bring a new perspective to the book and above all a lot of excitement, which is a breath of fresh air in a reboot full of sex, violence and angst.

    If the main Justice League book didnt seem to grab your attention in the way you wanted, I highly recommend that you check Justice League International out. Dan Jurgens and Aaron Lopresti have created a superhero book that is great and, most importantly, fun. I will admit, it isnt as new-reader friendly as I might like, but you get enough of a gist of who each character is that following the story should be no problem. Check this one out.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Kirby Oct 6, 2011

    I am sticking with JLI because I believe in the power of Booster Gold, and this disrespected superhero gets his due in this issue. The focus seems to be on getting people to take Booster seriously and with the dialogue and decisions made here he will surely get respect. The action scenes still aren't plotted out to provide a sense of excitement or urgency but this is turning out to be more of a character piece than a brawler. I respect what Dan Jurgens is trying to do and given enough time he will definitely succeed but it needed to happen quicker, it needed to happen last issue. If I wasn't such a Booster Gold fanboy this would be a trade pickup. With the trades, people will be able to get the whole story and get into the characters at a better pace which will serve better to build a fanbase. It's just a shame that the monthlies can't provide that yet. Read Full Review

    Justice League International #2 may not be the greatest issue of the New 52 but it is unique and manages to do many things better than your average 52 series. It is a good start for new readers; it's not dark but has some great dramatic moments that keep it from being boring. Longtime readers may not get as much enjoyment as they were hoping for with Booster's non-existent humor and Guy's quick appearance, but it is an enjoyable issue. The overall series is recommended to new readers and long-time fans of the characters alike " just don't expect anything as phenomenal as Batman or Aquaman. Read Full Review

    It's very rare when a comic book title improves with its second issue. Justice League International's premiere was lackluster. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't all that great either. This issue is much better. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 12, 2011

    It's an improvement from the first issue, but the comic is still missing a little of the fun from Justice League: Generation Lost. If Booster is going to be the more serious version we're seeing here I think the book needs a little more youthful energy which someone like Blue Beetle could provide. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    If JLI wants to separate itself from the rest of the pack, they'll have to make bigger impacts than this. At this point, Stormwatch seems a more viable team. Read Full Review

    Two months in, this series still has done nothing to distinguish itself or live up the JLI legacy. With so many new DC releases, how long can it afford coast like this? Read Full Review

    "Justice League International" has a strong pedigree, but this new incarnation isn't living up to the name. Maybe down the line when the characters are more of a team (and less incompetent) it'll turn into a fun title, but for now this is a poorly written book. Jurgens' recent run on "Booster Gold" was a lot of fun, and that makes his work here that much more disappointing. Read Full Review
