    This series provides a spotlight on some “lesser known” JL members and, as usual, I am a big fan of Jessica Cruz and her journey. Once again, this is another series that's well worth reading and Justice League Odyssey #18 is well worth the price of admission, just for finding clues as to what the DC Universe's writers are planning.

    Cliff Richards has some dynamic art in this issue. There are some good action beats and the characters look great, but the story doesn't really allow the art to shine. Read Full Review

    While not as exciting as last issue, Justice League Odyssey continues to tell a compelling superhero story unlike anything else on the stands today. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Feb 5, 2020

    More space adventuring and more of what I expected this book to be like 18 issues ago! By putting together a new unlikely team with a far better dynamic than the original, Abnett has found a way to get JLO into the swing of things and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite titles. There is a lot of talking here and the only action is at the very beginning, but there are no wasted conversations and I liked it a lot. The most important thing about this issue: we finally see (in that thing I'm not spoiling for you) how this Justice League title ties into the main Justice League title and other things going on in the DC Universe. The inking kinda throws the art off a little bit in some spots but overall it was still pretty good. Read Full Review

    Justice League Odyssey #18 continues the book's transformation into an unpredictable underdog space adventure, but also reminds us that the bigger plots that kicked this series off are still lurking in the background. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Kevin Rossi Feb 10, 2020

    I am new to Justice League Odyssey and new to a lot of these characters. Based on that, I liked this issue and Im rating it without prior knowledge of the entire run. The opening fight was really cool. Im really excited to see more of Eskaton and to see if they can take down Darkseid. The rest of the issue did not lose me after the excitement of the first few pages. The dialogue is well written and I really enjoyed the art. Overall, I had a lot of fun reading this issue and Id recommend checking out this series. If you have been following since the start, pick up this issue at your local comic book shop or wherever you get your comics. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Feb 5, 2020

    Overall, Justice League Odyssey #18 was an improvement. There is only hope that the quality only goes up from here with both halves of the story converged and most on the same page about what needs to be done in order to both defeat Darkseid and save all of existence. Read Full Review
