In this issue, Cyborg stands alone against the unstoppable fury of the Eskaton! To save life itself, the rest of his rogue Justice League team of Jessica Cruz, Starfire and Azrael must stand with the greatest evil in the Multiverse--and that means battling everything the feral Ghost Sector can throw at them. The fate of the Ghost Sector hangs in the balance, but has the Odyssey team picked the right side?

    With excellent character work and artwork that allows the readers to empathize with the characters, Justice League Odyssey #9 is easily the best issue of the series thus far. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez May 15, 2019

    As the mystery behind Darkseids plans continues to bleed out with each new issue, the team must join forces with the New God if they plan to double-cross him at the last moment. The series continues to stand head and shoulders above its first iteration. With the new arc beginning in the next issue, it will stand as the perfect chance for no readers looking to jump onto the title as well. Read Full Review

    Justice League Odyssey #9 aligned us with Jessica Cruz's perspective as the rest of the team is coming off like they've been drinking too much of Darkseid's Kool-Aid. Jessica might have to throw some Lantern hands with her buddies in the coming issues. And if it's anyone, I'm glad it's her. She's the most level headed out of all of them. Read Full Review

    Justice League Odyssey has been an enjoyable read overall even when it dips into exposition territory and, to an extent it does that this week. However, this issue it's a weird shift of sorts that may finally be starting to give Green Lantern Jessica Cruz a real purpose in the story. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 8, 2019

    JLO is on a nice rebound as of late. Once it gets a consistent artist and Abnett does more with the characters, this will be a title readers are going to anticipate each month. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure about the main narrative of the series, but the individual conflicts between the heroes are intriguing. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray May 9, 2019

    This series is now in full swing. The biggest threat to the team has loomed its head in Justice League Odyssey #9, and not from a place any of the characters were expecting. This will make future issues all the more dramatic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS May 8, 2019

    One good thing is that this book seems to be coming closer to colliding with the other Justice League books and providing a purpose. The bad thing is, and I've liked this title more than a lot of people, it doesn't deserve to be important. Seriously, what they're doing here is probably more important to saving the universe than what's going on in the Justice League book but it doesn't feel important. Also, the only two sane people in this title right now are Jessica and Blackfire. Honestly, I'm hoping Jessica actually does go through with it and mops the floor with them. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White May 12, 2019

    Perhaps I'm over analyzing the speech in a desperate search for meaning in an otherwise dull read, but it would seem Abnett is using the Ghost Sector as a metaphor for comics fandom. With fandom becoming more and more an “Us vs. Them” environment, there seems to be a veiled call to unite within the sanctuary of comics here. Or maybe it is just my imagination running wild.
