    The story's still a bit of a slog - we can see where it's heading (more or less), but it seems to keep veering off-course, as we duck down side alleys. (Why is the Flash in 1961? Why the attack on Olympus?) Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Dec 24, 2015

    Bryan Hitch is back and all is well with the JLA. The writing is good for the most part, and the art is amazing. Alex Sinclair gets a lot of credit here as well. The rapport that he has with Hitch is really what makes this a different kind of DC book. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Dec 25, 2015

    This issue proves that Hitch is capable of telling stories that are character driven, while also delivering those grand "comic book moments" we've come to expect. I still think he needs some development in his writing, but it's strictly around the structure of his narrative, and how to tell his story, while also making the most out of the monthly format.

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Dec 31, 2015

    I came into this book leery of yet another “God-like” being as the main villain to the Justice League. Too many times a near omnipotent opponent is the only way to expose any weakness or fault in a team that is as powerful as any deity. But Hitch proves his writing chops as he moves the story forward at a pace that keeps the readers, as well as the characters, off-balance and searching for answers. Paired with the visuals of a master at his comic creative peak and your left with a damn fine comic. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 23, 2015

    Geoff Johns may be doing some great continuity work over in the main Justice League title, but Bryan Hitch is certainly giving him a run for his money with this epic telling of DC's mightiest heroes. Hitch has long been known as a bombastic artist, but it's been especially great to see him growing into his own as a writer, as well. This take on the League rings as true as it does powerful, and that surefootedness leads to one spectacular comic. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Kenny Coburn Dec 23, 2015

    Justice League of America #6is ultimately a lot of interesting individual stories tied together under the Justice League banner. The problem is, as a result each of these stories is rushed and not fully flushed out. But, the story is clearly going to tie together in the future and the individual parts are engrossing enough to make this comic a solid read. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 23, 2015

    The plot is fairly predictable and derivative of other JLA stories, but the time travel element remains intriguing all the same. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 23, 2015

    This is a fun chapter due to the big action, but the plot progression is lacking and this is more of a transitional issue than anything else. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Dec 24, 2015

    The blueprints for an epic time-spanning JLAstory are here, but I think Hitch could benefit from having a co-writer. With the right partner, I really think future arcs could be something fans will talk about for years. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Tyler Saldaa Dec 25, 2015

    For the most part, I found the art to be incredible. Hitch and his art team of Henriqeus, Currie and Sinclair delivered two breathtaking fight sequences: one between Superman and Rao that climaxes with a two-page spread of Superman being blasted through a mountain and the second being Aquaman and Wonder Woman battling Raos prophets on whats left of Olympus. This second fight sequence builds to another fantastic two-page spread of Olympus exploding after Raos prophets give their lives to Rao. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Dec 24, 2015

    "Justice League of America" #6 has its moments and works better as a part of Hitch's overall story than it does as a single chapter. While Hitch is a capable writer, the issue reminds readers that he's even better as an artist. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Dec 23, 2015

    Perhaps in hindsight, this issue will help fill gaps and provide much needed context for the story arch to make sense? After a laterelease built anticipation, though, this issue felt lacking in stand alone substance " the kind that moves readers to have that "I can't wait for the next issue!" feeling. I'm still hopeful for a strong storyline for "Power & Glory," but will need at least another issue's worth of context and content to be sure. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 23, 2015

    Heroes doing a bunch of things, but ultimately none of it's very interesting.  Yeah, things get heated for Aquaman and Wonder Woman in this issue, but since they've pretty much just been background characters to this run, I'm left wondering why I should care because I'm not totally sure what's going on with them or the places they inhabit here anyway.  Just not a lot to get excited about here even if  you do remember what this series was doing previously and while I didn't mind the art, none of it really wow-ed me and I'm just left hoping that this series picks up a bit so I can be excited again.

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault Dec 23, 2015

    Bryan Hitchs Justice League of America has been thus far a failure. The story is convoluted, reliant on convenience, contrivance, and coincidence, and lacks strong character arcs, epic set pieces, or other sources of emotional depth. But all of this is largely forgiven on account of the ambition and scope of his story and it themes, tackling theology and time-travel both, even if such exceedshis execution. Hardly exciting, Justice League of America still proves intriguing, and Ill absolutely be there next issue to see how it all concludes. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Dec 28, 2015

    This storyline hasn't completed, but I'm done. I've been very disappointed in the story and art and don't think this book is worth the cover price. I expect better on DC Comics' flagship team book. Six issues is more than enough time to hope for improvement. Read Full Review
