    The book also has a welcome feel of unpredictability where anything can happen and usually does. Maybe the overall plot could advance somewhat but it feels like a minor complaint. This has become a great read each month and theres no need to rush to the old status quo. The new crew is doing just fine. Read Full Review

    I'm to the party a bit late. As Justice League Odyssey #17 is the first issue I've read of this series. I'm compelled to get a back story of how this team was forged, but again, I'm a big fan of Jessica Cruz, so any way you cut it, I'm in. Justice League comics don'tt have to be so Trinity laden and the folks at DC have re-imagined a team where other heroes can be a part of the Major League on the outskirts! Hooray for Gamma – everyone loves the cavalry! Read Full Review

    I had a lot of fun with this issue. Not only is the art really good but the action is intense and the dialogue keeps you invested and interested (well, except for maybe Gamma Knife's drones). Orion fighting back and phasing in his war gear legit gave me goosebumps, I grew to really like Hax in this issue, and Jessica's monthly badass one-liner moment does not disappoint. This title has been a roller coaster lately, switching between good issues and bad ones. But when it's good it's really good, and this is one of those. Read Full Review

    Ever since all the more-established heroes in Justice League Odyssey were sidelined by Darkseid's plot, Dan Abnett's space-faring adventure has come into its own as an underdog sci-fi epic " even as it feels more and more disconnected from the main DCU. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jan 15, 2020

    What can I say? Even jumping back into the story with Justice League Odyssey #17, still this book could be in a much better place than it is now. It feels like they wanted this grand idea that would bridge this story into the ‘Justice/Doom War' event, and bit off more than they could chew. I hate to get this harsh with a book, but that happens when you have expectations that aren't being met. Read Full Review

    Look, the book is fine. The art is great and the cast is interesting. But the thing is, why should we care about any of this? I'd be surprised if this title went back the 25-issue mark. The book is solid, but totally unremarkable. Read Full Review
