    AIPT - Chris Showalter Sep 13, 2019

    Justice League Odyssey #13 feels like a new issue #1 for the series. Abnett's success with this issue lies in establishing compelling mysteries around the new characters without ever making them feel like replacements for the team we lost. Read Full Review

    Abnett largely ignores the original cast, but this issue shows the book could be on the verge of a breakthrough depending on how he navigates these newer characters to the title. Its going to take a big crew to take down Darkseid after all and theres no better time than now to start building an army to stop him. JLO is really shaping up to be a consistently solid and surprising title each month. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nancy Northcott Sep 11, 2019

    I enjoyed this story a lot, which surprised me because of my problems with the prior issue. This time there was no excessive use of captions, wasted exposition, or stretching of the story by using more panels than a sequence requires. Even though we didn't see Darkseid or the Leaguers with him, the overall story feels as though it's moving along. And the ending is" dynamite. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - James Stone Sep 11, 2019

    After a rocky start to this series, Justice League Odyssey has become my favorite ongoing series, bringing together four often ignored characters with a perfect fantasy blend. All elements are firing on all cylinders right now; the story, the characters, the artwork, the color is pitch perfect for the audience. The lettering in comics is often underappreciated but AnWworld Design curate the pages brilliantly, with an array of fonts and the varying boxes which ease the flow of the story. Justice League Odyssey #13 encapsulates all that is great about this series, while still managing to take some risks and even elevate the story to a new level. Read Full Review

    This issue works (mostly for reasons which spoil the big twist of the issue) and I'm excited to see how long the new status quo lasts. More Dex-Starr is always a good thing in my book. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 11, 2019

    Big reveals about Jessica's new powers round out the issue, which is probably the most entertaining one of the series. It feels more like a Jessica Cruz comic than it has in a while, and the other three leads never quite clicked as protagonists in a space story. I'm hoping refocusing the story around Jess will give it a burst of energy as it enters its second year. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 11, 2019

    By the end of Justice League Odyssey #13, I would say that my reaction to this was mixed. On one hand the twist was great, but on the other hand the direction that the story took from there was questionable. At least for now. The next issue is going to have to pull out the stops in order to convince us that this isn't where things begin to run too wild from what had an impressive focus before. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Sep 17, 2019

    Overall, this issue is fine. It's not bad but the only thing that doesn't make it completely forgettable is what happens to Jessica Cruz and what it could mean going forward. Read Full Review
