    Complimenting the story is the brilliant art of Ivan Reis who successfully pays homage to these characters and gives them his own touches to help bring them to life. Then you have the one armed Lobo fighting machine which is beyond cool and a fun highlight. Read Full Review

    I'm still not fully sold on the main story yet, but this feels much more like a classic JLA adventure than some of the earlier missteps. It's good to see Orlando do something new and rewarding to see it paying off with a fun story free of politics and topical storylines. If this keeps up, Justice League of America might just work out after all. Read Full Review

    Justice League of America #14 is a good read and I'm looking forward to the next issue. Although the team has finally found Ray Palmer, the microverse is still ending, and the team is still stuck there, so a plan is drastically needed. The team still has a lot of work to do if it wants to return home. Read Full Review

    Ray Palmer does finally show up, in his classic uniform, on the final page. This time its not a decoy tease, as it had been a couple of issues earlier. Read Full Review

    Look, I know Justice League of America has been rough. I know that assessment might be too kind" But I also know that this arc is incredibly entertaining! If you haven't read this book, or you dropped it after a few issues, check out "Crisis in the Microverse." Everything has improved! The story is great, the dialogue is great, and the characters are great! There's suspense, wonder, and a sense of excitement due to the newness of the universe! Steve Orlando is doing some great work here, and it deserves your attention! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Matt Granberry Sep 13, 2017

    This story is very good in that it kept me guessing what would happen next and it didn't get off topic. Even the opening scene ties in cause you know as well as I do that what Vixen and Gregorio was talking about is gonna come back. I love the action scenes especially with Lobo fighting with one arm, I mean c'mon that's just plain cool. My favorite thing about this story is how Ryan comes into his own finally and finds his self confidence. The art is well done and fits the story very very well, Its not to gritty or dark or even too light for that matter its just right. Read Full Review

    We finally get the moment we've been waiting for and even though the path to it was convoluted and silly, I liked this issue.  It can still get a lot better, but I'll just be glad I didn't hate it for now. Read Full Review

    This is a hard issue to recommend to anyone. While it's somewhat mediocre, there is a major turning point in the story here that will be important going forward. Ivan Reis' art is fantastic, though. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - steven conroy Sep 14, 2017

    This story has the potential to feel like an old school JLA story, the fantastical elements, the search for a missing team member and the high stakes of saving a universe. I just hope that we get that because right now it's feeling like “Crisis in the Microverse” could just end up being forgettable. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Matthew Mahar Sep 15, 2017

    Were getting some momentum, which I like. Ray Palmer is finally back in the DC Universe, which I like. He made some small appearances in various titles here and there, but he has been largely absent throughout the New 52. Im slightly irritated that its taken us nearly 16 months to get some insight into the character tease from May 2016s DC Universe Rebirth, but Im trying to not hold that against the team on this book. This issue was a step in the right direction after last issues somewhat dud of a story. Im looking forward to some more Ray Palmer in my life. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 20, 2017

    I'm still not sure what to make of this book overall. There are neat moments and I'm glad that the focus isn't split between stories here with the Microverse and regular world as the regular world only gets some minor lip service here. The Microverse storyline has its moments and it's a great standout piece for Ryan but that's contrasted with some problematic material for Caitlin that's going to eat at her and make any potential relationship even more problematic. The book survives at this point with the promise of what Ray Palmer has been up to in this place and some pretty engaging and fun artwork from Ivan Reis. There's still a lot of potential with this series but it's reminding me of my frustration with team books in the modern era. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards Sep 13, 2017

    It might not be as structurally messy as previous story arcs, but it's boring. The attempt is an epic adventure story, but the environments and characters are dull, and there's no heart to the story. Read Full Review
