    Carmine Di Giandomenico's art is stunning. There is so much activity in every panel and everything including the backgrounds is filled with energy. Read Full Review

    Now it also goes without saying that this issue was going to be a dealbreaker for those who were on the fence about switching up the writers for Justice League Odyssey. It was tough to say, but Dan Abnett made for a great replacement and gave us the kind of fresh perspective needed to maintain interest in this adventure. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Mar 5, 2019

    Having saved this title from an early grave, Abnett and Giandomenico start their new journey together with the team into new and brighter horizons. With Darkseid taking center stage behind the curtains, this allows for an previously unseen aspect to the Justice League mythos and new storytelling avenues for Abnett to go down as a whole. As this series finds its legs, the readers are sure to follow the exploits of this niche group of heroes. Read Full Review

    A new creative team does not bail out our team of heroes from the insanity within the Ghost Sector.

The Odyssey team is hot on Darkseid's trail but is taking time to mourn for the state of Tamaran and survive the assault from Blackfire and her minions. Dan Abnett has set in motion his plans to create a new space epic. Read Full Review

    Overall, the issue is a turning point for the series, deepening the cosmic mystery in a solid, visually spectacular way. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Mar 6, 2019

    While I can't say this issue was bad by any means,JLO has foundational issues with its core conceit that underscores even its best intentions. Where these characters are going, why readers should care about them, why they're even together - these are flaws that no change in writers may be able to overcome. While on an issue-by-issue basis there's fun to be had and some strong character beats, something needs to snap into place fast or this book may be doomed. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Showalter Feb 27, 2019

    Dan Abnett starts off his first issue of Justice League Odyssey with a bang. Literally. Unfortunately, a lot of the momentum that had been built throughout the previous issue has been lost due to a few storytelling choices. Abnett's narration boxes are entertaining to read, but I think some moments would benefit more from the "show-don't-tell" approach. Read Full Review

    I like the cast of characters in this book, but unfortunately, both the plot and the villains are lacking anything to make it half as compelling as its supernatural sister book. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Feb 27, 2019

    This issue's ending delivered the plot twist this title and that particular character deserved. It's very easy to become bored of characters becoming repetitive. A twist like this will set back the actions of this character a great deal, and we can only imagine what will become of the story as a result. I look forward to the title's new direction.

    DC Comics News - Ari Bard Mar 1, 2019

    Justice League Odyssey #6 is a fresh start that shows the potential of the great cosmic odyssey the series could be. The book isn't quite there yet, but with Dan Abnett at the helm, we are well on our way. Read Full Review

    Good issue. Feels a little like Cosmic Odyssey even so it can’t reach its level of quality. The JL members are acting so dumb& clueless, it fits them though. Wouldn’t be the first time& that’s another reason, why it reminds me of Cosmic Odyssey. Hope Darkseid doesn’t die again, he’s the last hope for the New Gods after all& apparently it’s too much to be asked to have him save on Apokolips with the others. My hopes aren’t very high with the end of this issue, but I still hope he somehow makes it. But nice to see a more classic Darkseid again. Hope DC continues to write him like that, even so he isn’t on his former power level, but he at least doesn’t feel braindead like in Mister Miracle or Darkseid War.
    So I’m exci more

    Not much is happening in this issue, I liked how the space is defined here. It was a good read nevertheless.

    This feels like a bit of a fresh start. Unfortunately it had a bit too much narration. Kind of bummed that Blackfire and Darkseid aren't working together, can cause so much chaos. At least Abnett is clearing things up like with Jess's ring. The dialogue of Azrael felt more of a dick in this issue.

    I just don’t really care about this. The characters are boring and so is the plot.
