    I highly recommend this issue for what is looking to be a big big throw down between the Injustice League Unlimited (stupid name not-withstanding) and a super Justice League lineup. Read Full Review

    If The Wedding Special is an example of McDuffie's run, The Justice League of America will no longer be a book to be shunned. DC would also be smart to keep Mike McKone on monitor duty. His artwork looks sumptuous and lacks the homogeneity plaguing the art in so many comic books. Read Full Review

    Overall, I was really surprised by the quality and story of this issue. Dwayne McDuffie is off to a fantastic start with his Justice League run, even though I feel this should have been JLA #13. Im excited for a classic Super-Friends type battle that will no doubt have plenty of modern twists as well as much of the Justice League Unlimited flavor. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Sep 17, 2007

    Justice League of America Wedding Special #1 was a fun read. No, McDuffie's take on the JLA is not as in-depth and complex as Meltzer's JLA. And McDuffie's story doesn't stimulate the mind nearly as much as Meltzer's run. Melzter's JLA was a nice thick juicy steak that really satisfied my brain. McDuffie's JLA is more like popcorn. Delicious and enjoyable, but not filling. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Sep 12, 2007

    McDuffie taps into the fun of the JLU cartoon on which he worked by amassing a team of villains to square off against the heroes. It's hardly a new concept, but it's still a fun one. There's just one problem: with this book firmly set in current DC continuity, he's faced with the problem that DC villains were teamed together in the Society all too recently. In fact, the script refers to it repeatedly, with characters insisting it will be different this time. But it's not. The fact that other characters keep pointing that out as well doesn't help. McDuffie tries to overcome that challenge by acknowledging it in the story itself, but the effort falls short. Instead, he just keeps reminding the reader of the redundancy. Read Full Review
