    Did I enjoy it? Yes. Did it leave me scratching my head in confusion? Definitely! I can't even begin to guess what the next issue holds. Read Full Review

    This is a fine offering by DC. James Robinson is still fiddling with the team, as he should, but it's fun to watch the characters we love struggle with this transition. I'll be here for next issue. Read Full Review

    They don't need company wide distractions. They've been staging their own internalize multi-world crossovers for decades now, with a cast that can apparently multiply to infinity (or at least 52 different worlds, probably). Here's hoping the four core members revealed this issue provide a basis for a truly classic lineup to come. Read Full Review

    Now if the story would just get focused, we'd be getting somewhere. Read Full Review

    Ok now" this issue was just a bit odd to me. The writing was ok, but nothing really happened. There were several apparently pointless fights, the New New Gods (no, that doesn't work either) managed to set up their new toy (no good can come of this), and the team lost members left right and center. You know, this kind of illustrates a lot of what seems to be going on in the DCU. The JLA should be their flagship title, and yet they are flailing around, don't know what they are doing, and can't keep members. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tyler Parker Mar 31, 2010

    I've harped on the issue enough. It has a few decent character beats that mostly involve Congo Bill (who has taken on the comedic relief role). It's still, however, hard to crack a smile in the middle of a devastatingly banal comic. If you're a hardcore JLA fan then I can't stop you from grabbing the issue, but this definitely shouldn't be added to any pull lists. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Apr 1, 2010

    Another sign of hope is that Robinson is having the characters notice some of the problems with the make-up of the book and comment on them. Between Dick Grayson musing that the Justice League isn't working as a team, and Green Arrow's wondering (non-ironically) how things all got so much darker, one hopes it's writing on the wall that things are going to change. Robinson has stated in interviews that he wants a more heroic, happy group of characters in the title and I'm crossing my fingers that this is the first step along those lines. "Justice League of America" is a book that is still going to merit monitoring; if things continue to improve it will be worth sticking around. In the book's present precarious state, though, I certainly couldn't encourage blindly staying on board. There just isn't enough of a track record to merit that. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Josh Dean Apr 3, 2010

    Justice League of America resembles only Countdown to Final Crisis and nothing else. Say what you will about Cry for Justice but it told an uninterrupted narrative concerning a fairly set number of characters with a clear beginning, middle and end. The League is still lost in the desert and needs to be given some space to develop on its own terms. Read Full Review
