With the Signal Men defeated and Earth saved from certain annihilation, the members of Justice League International expected to bask in glory and appreciation. Such is not the case as a new threat far more dangerous than anyone dared suspect emerges and attacks with dire results!

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Mar 12, 2012

    The fight between Booster and Lightweaver was fun, but ultimately just the set up to introduce Batwing into series and onto the team in upcoming issues. It makes perfect sense, now that there's a Batman in Africa, but it still seems weird. I'm not a fan of Batwing, and I hope Jurgens keeps his panel time to a minimum in the tradition of the real Batman. Read Full Review

    JLI is certainly delivering on the classic title. I'm happy with what Jurgens is doing with it and suspect it will only get from here. Read Full Review

    The fact that an Earth villain was able to accomplish what the intergalactic warlord, Peraxxus, couldn't do makes this new story arc all the more interesting. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Mar 7, 2012

    There's a lot that goes on in this issue, and the new, more serious tone is intriguing. In some ways, the transition from issue #6 to issue #7 reminds me of the transition from the old G.I. Joe animated TV series to the 1987 animated movie. I'm not sure that this series will be able to approach the same level of timelessness or impact, but, assuming Batwing's cameos aren't too painful, I'm definitely interested in seeing where it goes.

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole Mar 15, 2012

    It may not have the impact it intended but the issue does have a few key character moments to keep things interesting. The art sells the tragedy, but the injuries the team suffer don't resonate. Due mainly to the fact the girls of the team have been criminally underused since the books inception. In the end most of the deaths and injuries are meaningless, but the reactions of Booster and Guy are enough to see some sort of impact on the story at least. It isn't perfect but it could lead to a new direction that the book would benefit from. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 8, 2012

    We also get a surprise appearance by Batwing. Although I think he fits well with the make-up of the team, I am a little saddened by the prospect of him as a replacement for Batman. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Nicole D'Andria Mar 18, 2012

    This issue is attempting to be the culminating point in JLI's history, with hints of imminent deaths, established deaths and critical conditions. But never does the tension reach the crescendo it's trying for. There are too little emotions going on with the characters all behaving the same, the pointless plot points and the bright color scheme. The issue is a failure, but does have me hanging on thanks to that surprise end character and the hope that some of the things at stake are legitimately high. Read Full Review
