    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Apr 11, 2019

    Continuing to outdo himself yet again, Abnett proves why this title was worth saving. Those strong character moments would be nothing without Samperes pencils. Darkseid proves to be the continual thorn in the side of this rendition of Justice League. As the series moves into its next arc, the ghost sectors os primed to be further explored on a larger scale as this title continues to find its way into readers hands. Read Full Review

    We finally get some answers in Justice League Odyssey #8 this week, and while the issue doesn't really do much with them, what really works here is the interplay between Darkseid and the heroes. Read Full Review

    The art is good, particularly on the battle scenes, as Blackfire leads the forces of Tamaran and Azrael-world against Darkseid and his new allies. Read Full Review

    Under this new creative team, Justice League Odyssey seems to be finding its focus " and it's a lot less ambitious than the original pitch. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Apr 10, 2019

    The issue ends showing just how dire the situation has become, as a threat previously unseen hits the team. With everything finally revealed, the mysterious premise which the series started with is gone. Therefore, there's an all-new direction for the title to go in with a cosmic threat looming. At the same time, the absolutely dangerous combination of Azrael's followers and Blackfire could cause many headaches for our heroes. This issue has handled questions of how well characters can trust each other and has changed the tone, leaving us to wonder how they're going to overcome these problems. This was a dramatic end to the first story arc. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Apr 10, 2019

    While we get some answers to questions that have been hanging around since issue #1, not much is done with them.  Overall, this book seems like a better fit for Abnett, but at the expense of some character work.  The art is good but Sampere needs to draw Darkseid more often because he's great at drawing that character specifically.
