With Earth as collateral damage, the Kryptonian deity called Rao has the Justice League on the ropes! It would take a miracle to defeat him. Good thing the League makes miracles look easy

    The bottom line is this: the characters are pushed to the brink, great teamwork is on display and the story has a few surprises up its sleeve. The fact that it ends on a cliffhanger we may have seen before doesn't hurt things as the setup in previous issues promises a different direction, and ultimately an even bigger payoff.

    Justice League of America #8 was yet another amazing chapter in “Power and Glory” with Rao remaining a compelling villain. Add to this some explosive action and engaging dialogue, and you're left with a product that is sure to leave fans begging for more. Read Full Review

    While there's the occasional hiccup in this issue - namely, the cliffhanger doesn't really have any teeth, while a splash page featuring Wonder Woman looks a little wonky in the detailing - ultimately, this is the kind of comic that DC purists and fight comic aficionados should absolutely pay attention to. This is bigger than big and larger than life, and does a great job showcasing the different styles of DC's most important icons. If you haven't been reading Justice League of America, now is the time to start. Read Full Review

    A brawl for the ages, strong character work, and the culmination of several of Hitch's big ideas combine for an impressive return for Justice League of America. If you aren't reading this series, you should be, and if you are, you know what I'm talking about. I'm thrilled that Hitch will be sticking around after Rebirth, and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. Read Full Review

    Regardless, this issue is just shy of being something that would make me jump onboard the ongoing. It's as classic a JLA tale as you can get without the questions of "why?" and the jarring ending and Wonder Woman art. I do look forward to hearing how this arc rounds out, and hardcore JLA fans will eat this up. It's fan-service hero stuff at nearly its best with a few nittinoids. Long live the JLA.

    JLA #8 is a disappointment, even within the context of an underwhelming series which suffered high expectations given the pedigree of the talent attached. As such, it is a troubling portent of for the quality of DC's marquee title come July's Rebirth. One can only pray to Rao that Justice League doesn't arrive stillborn. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Apr 3, 2016

    JLA is wrapping up, but when you read this series as a whole it will impress you. Bryan Hitch did a fine job on writing duties and an even better job on the pencils. He gets some good help from Alex Sinclair and Daniel Henriques along the way as well. JLA may not be a series that stands out to many readers, but it is a series worth reading. Read Full Review

    Part of me thinks that years from now, Ill pull these issues out of my long box, reread them and actually enjoy them. But for now, as long as I still am somewhat calloused by the seemingly inevitable delays of Hitch and Co., I await the day this series is over. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 30, 2016

    On top of being delayed for over a month, this story is hurt from its "Let's just throw it out there and not explain a damn thing to those suckers" attitude and its less than stellar art.  Halfway through this book I just stopped caring about how our heroes were going to win the day because it was so over the top and convoluted that I figured if this book wasn't going to try than neither would I.......... but I trudged on........... and I regret that decision.  Even though I was really looking forward to this title when it was first announced, it has become something that I loathe to read because besides for decent cliffhangers, it has nothing going on issue to issue.
