    JLO is definitely improving as Abnett has settled in nicely as the new writer and coming up with scenarios that don't make the team feel so disconnected from the larger DCU. Add in a well-timed Year of the Villain tie-in and this felt like a major turning point for the title. Hopefully that momentum keeps rolling. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 10, 2019

    Justice League Odyssey #11 takes us to that stage in the plot where it is more important than ever that the JLO team tries to take control of this situation they have been thrown into. They have been playing Darkseid's game, but now was the time for them to show that they aren't just the pawns. Of course, easier said than done, though it wouldn't be exciting if you had it any other way. I look forward to seeing how this little bump in the road continues to challenge this team.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 10, 2019

    Will Conrad's art is great. With the exception of the final few pages, there isn't a lot of action in this issue. That allows Conrad to explore the characters and how they look utilizing amazing detail throughout. Read Full Review

    It's certainly a high-stakes story, but the problem is that the first half of the issue is devoted to little more than Darkseid monologuing about exactly how this power works. Read Full Review

    I think the lesson here is to just let Dan Abnett do his sci-fi thing and not worry about having every book tie into your company's crossover event. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Jul 10, 2019

    My like of the team and the story continues to be frustrated by the poor planning of it all, and the inconsistency of Darkseid's hold on Starfire and Azrael is pissing me off. I thought we turned a corner in the space adventure that was the last issue but I was wrong. Oh, the art is awesome, by the way. Read Full Review

    Oh my goodness! Abnett has really been building it all up for this very moment. This comic is exhilarating, I literally felt like I couldn't breath while I was reading it. I feel sorry for Jessica, she's really in trouble now.

    There's a lot of scientific terms that are used here, it was really cool even though I couldn't fully comprehend or get a simple meaning of it. Sepulkore is solid, the way it needs more than 50 Apokoliptian relics to jump start it to avoid the forthcoming multiversal threat and to sustain life within, the whole idea behind Darkseid's plan is brilliant.

    Opening the comic with Lex looking for Darkseid was really interesting, 'Darkseid is always a damn variable', nice Lexy! While Darkseid have a loo more

    It got seven pages in and there was a title page and genuinely there was this hopeful moment where I was like “oh my god, is that the end? Did I make it to the end?” Nope. Page seven.

    So... is Cyborg officially a New God now? Because that is kind of awesome.

    The problem with this series is, that it’s way too slow. Whenever I’m reading it, Im thinking come on you’ve pointed that out many times ago. The JL expressed their doubts so often I can’t hear it anymore.
    At least we are seeing more of Darkseid in this issue& he’s basically just talking. It was nice to read Cyborgs comments about Darkseid being above humans& having unimaginable intelligence. Sure that’s true, but I wish DC actually would portray Darkseid like that. He is portrayed as an idiot since New52 started, but JL Odyssey at least does him more justice than King, Castellucci or Johns. I also doubt Luthor could offer Darkseid anything of interest for him as it was suggested at the beginning of this issue.

    Holy cow, that was one unnecessarily dense book. I get Abnett's desire to illustrate Cyborg's transformation into a machine "New God," but surely there was a simpler way to get there than to have Cyborg and Darkseid discussing imaginary math and science for pages.

    The issue did have perhaps the best Year of the Villain "offer" -- the first couple pages basically getting the YotV stuff out of the way with no offer...just some regret.

    I suppose Cyborg's transformation represents character development. I would have liked to see him remain grounded in a family-driven reality -- that's been a strong aspect of his character -- but DC decided to go in a different direction.

    The other three characters were somewha more
