    The momentum of Justice League Odyssey has kept Jessica Cruz front and center. This issue's departure into a past that finally offers more insight into Gamma Knife's identity is a brilliant move. The decision to only reveal certain pieces of information is equally inspired. Read Full Review

    Most JLO issues provide some measure of surprise as Abnett can completely shake the roster up and introduce new characters seamlessly. It was time to get more insight on Gamma as well as getting a backstory on one of DC's newer black heroes. Cruz has been the unexpected star of this series beyond being the heart of the team so her introduction to Gamma works on multiple levels. The period where this takes place is interesting as Abnett plays around with the idea of the Multiverse in the series as well. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 7, 2020

    I liked this story for how easily accessible it was to the series. Cruz may be on a mission that involves many previous issues, but it's easily enjoyable thanks to it dropping us in a strange world and making us figure it out. This book also has strong Star Wars vibes with a lot of grungy space pirate aspects you won't want to miss. Read Full Review

    Let's hope that Ms Cruz gets back to her own timeline. We all know what happened when Bruce Wayne was banished to the past… Dark Nights: Metal anyone? Read Full Review

    It's a solid issue, although I'm curious to see if Cruz will continue to hop through the timestream or if she finally catches a break. Read Full Review

    Justice League Odyssey #22 is a fast-moving issue and a blast to read. It is pure space western fun and hits enough tropes that will please any science-fiction fan. Heres hoping this isnt the last we see of this Suzi Starr. Read Full Review

    Cliff Richards' art is great. With the lack of story, the art takes center stage and the action is fantastic to see. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Jul 6, 2020

    This issue is a speed bump in the great progress that JLO has made, as it's mostly either all recap or completely useless. I wouldn't mind a break from the main story to get a proper Gamma Knife origin story, but we didn't even get that in an issue that features Gamma Knife before she called herself Gamma Knife. I dunno, man. This is now the book that I look the most forward to from DC and I'm disappointed. I understand that filler issues have a purpose, but this is a very ill-timed filler issue.
