On their first mission, the team has been separated and defeated--or so it seems. But when a new, galactic threat shows its face, will our heroes be able to defeat it or will the whole world suffer destruction on a cosmic scale?

    Writer Dan Jurgens does give us some fun moments (hell, he's even getting me to change my mind about Godiva) and the art by Aaron Lopresti fits the story well, even if Peraxxus' design is far too reminiscent of Galactus) including a full-page spread of the team jumping back into action. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Dec 7, 2011

    The entertainment value of Justice League International still rests within the range of superficial fluff, but it's a fluff of an enjoyable, classic sort. As it is, Justice League International #4 isn't without problems, but it's agreeable enough as it leads into the final showdown with Peraxxus nicely. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Dec 20, 2011

    This issue has a lot of problems: The dialogue between characters is imbalanced, the storyline is boring (despite it starting to get an epic feel), the attempts at humor are mostly more forced than funny, and the villain's copyright is questionable. This is the weakest point of the series, and another issue like it could be the end for the JLI. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Dec 13, 2011

    What puzzles me, and the reason why this book fails to earn a perfect score is that the Big Bad casually defeats the League. This should have been the ending chapter. Yeah, Peraxxus can beat the League individually, but when they pile it on, it's over. Darkseid I can see overcoming these odds, but not this interstellar scrap iron salesman. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole Dec 13, 2011

    So after enjoying the past couple of issues a sense of apathy is rising up as the plot continues to plod along. Lopresti is really doing great work here, but Jurgens needs to bring some much needed characterisation to the almost ignored members of the team. But for now the book seems to be sliding into the dull area of comic stories. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 13, 2011

    At this make-or-break stage, Jurgens still hasn't proven the JLI beyond its concept. The characters are relentlessly one-dimensional, the plot thoroughly cut-and-dry, and the writing mostly shallow and bland. Score another one for the Dropped pile. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 8, 2011

    "Justice League International" is, right now, easily the weak link of the three "Justice League" titles. I love the idea of the strange mixture of characters that the book promises, and the nod to the earlier, Keith Giffen helmed version of the title with its merging of humor and drama. But right now, "Justice League International" feels like a pale shadow of the original. It's just not quite there. A little more deviation from the standard playbook can only do some good at this point; more originality, please. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 10, 2011

    Justice League International #4 continues this books trend of banality, and is more boring than it is upsetting or unpleasant. Read Full Review
