    The Comic Addiction - Robert Tacopina Dec 19, 2009

    Being somewhat of a casual Justice League follower I did at times find myself confused by what was presented on the page as far as continuity goes. Fortunate for me I have the power of Wiki to help fill in the holes and bring myself somewhat up to speed as to what was going on. I thought the dip into Steel’s origin definitely helped and was a welcome addition to the story. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Shawn Hill Dec 21, 2009

    With Red Tornado already disposed of and Plastic Man a near-useless puddle, the women have few allies and yet lack the strength to fend for themselves. Except for Dr. Light herself, who manifests the power all the zombies keep telling her she lacks--finally. Zatanna returns from her off-screen battle, apparently victorious, and then everyone faints. It's a grim, predictable story, merciful only in its relative brevity. I hope it purchased Robinson the time he needs to really get things running in a new direction next issue. Read Full Review

    Hopefully this book will eventually takes its place again as DC's flagship title. But it's not there yet. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 2, 2010

    My New Year's Resolution for this title is a good, long stretch of brilliance, with strong characters and a reason for being a League. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 19, 2009

    At this point, I'm not sure why Robinson even came on board for these issues to shuffle out the old cast in favor of "The Titans" cast-offs and characters he was already writing elsewhere. I'd almost rather him have disbanded the old team in-between issues, because this wasn't pleasant for anyone who'd enjoyed the characters that were still sticking around. Clearly, Robinson didn't like them. Hopefully he has more interest in his own line-up. Read Full Review

    Utterly appalling. Don't even give this a chance. Read Full Review
