    Not the best book in the series, but definitely on and equal level WITH the best one; and we are left with a real WTF moment at the book's end. Who is this phantom player and why the heck is he or she trying to destroy the League? (Is it Maxwell Lord? Please say it is!!!) More next month!! Read Full Review

    They are becoming more than political poster boys now and Jurgens is doing a great job of telling a story about a team finding themselves in the face of adversity. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Feb 5, 2012

    This sixth issue has been my favorite yet. Heavy on dialogue, most of the issue focuses on Booster convincing the UN Security Council that the JLI is worth it, that they have worth and value to the world. By the end, Booster is ready to solider on as team leader, with or without the UN behind them. It's a pretty great couple of pages with some great character development for Booster Gold. I've always liked Booster (and Blue Beetle Ted Kord) because they're the underdogs. They try so hard and fall so much harder each time. Fortunately, Jurgens is able to somewhat 're-invent' Booster in the pages of Justice League International, giving him a bit more selflessness and making him less silly. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 6, 2012

    From the comic's final panel it looks like the team is going to be thrown right back into the action but I'm hoping Dan Jurgens doesn't forget to include these kinds of moments which really make a JLI comic work. I'm also sad to see the (apparent) departure of Batman who definitely belongs on this title. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Feb 1, 2012

    This issue has its problems, but I'd still recommend it to the majority of readers. The story features two unconvincing fight sequences and a whole lot of talking, but it manages to be the strongest issue to date. That could be interpreted as a criticism of issues one through five, but it would be disingenuous to end the conversation there. There's a real heart to this story, and, for once, you can tell that these characters are part of the same team. Also, the book is very approachable for new readers, and there's enough meat to the story to keep them entertained. I'm still not big on the title, but I'm now open to the idea of it being a solid offering each month. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Feb 17, 2012

    But hey, at least now ongoing readers can rejoice " it may have taken six issues, but finally the characters names do not appear in the comic (something we definitely shouldn't be seeing in an 'epilogue'). Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Feb 3, 2012

    The nice thing about this issue is that, now that the big bad has been defeated (until the last page, that is), the characters can move to the forefront and be the focus of the book, not some newly created villain to which no one has a real connection. However, with next month's adventure, there is no guarantee that this will newfound characterization will continue. This book has been floating on the fringe of my pull list since the start, but I will let it stay there a little longer, to see if the unique properties that can make it great do. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole Feb 8, 2012

    So, on the whole the book is a step in the right direction. Throwing in more character moments work and allow some of the cast to grow. Hopefully this will continue. However Guy Gardner needs to drop the attitude to become believable in his indignation and even if they have lines Vixen, Ice and Fire still need a lot of work. It maybe a somewhat uninspired plot, but it is elevated by the books star (Booster) and an unlikely, but effective emotional core (August General). Read Full Review
