    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Feb 16, 2018

    In the end, this story was a lot of fun, and provided some epic moments that harkened back to the Grant Morrison and Mark Waid runs on the JLA.  The only weak point in the issue, was that Killer Frost seemed to be getting no punishment for letting the Queen into their reality.  She should be going to jail, but instead, the League is offering its support in helping her deal with her disease.  This leads the audience to believe that there will be zero-to-no consequences for her, as the end of the issue seems to be springboarding directly into the next arc.  Nevertheless, its unlikely her arc is finished, so it will be intriguing to see where Orlando is taking the character.

    If youve been following the Justice Leagues adventures in suburban Rhode Island over the past few months, issue #23 is an amazing conclusion to that story. Again, if thinky books arent your thing, this may not be for you. If thinky books arent your thing and youd like that to change, then you might want to go back a couple issues and read this arc in full. Its definitely worth it. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed Justice League of America #24. The action is all over the place, with a really good story to match. Neil Edwards brings each page to life with painstaking detail. You notice every expression that each character makes perfectly in sync with the dialog that Orlando writes for them. I'm especially looking forward to the next issue as it seems that Batman finally returns after a long hiatus. I can't wait to see his reaction to the revelations of the last few issues, especially after all of the damage Prometheus visit did to the team a few issues back. Read Full Review

    A strong finale to the "Deadly Fable" arc in Justice League of America #20, as we now know this is the penultimate arc to Orlando's run. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Mar 3, 2018

    The stories have as much continuity as turning a plot switch on an off. I am not getting good characterization, and the personal relationships are moving along at a snail's pace. This team so far is wasted on these trivial events, and I have a vague idea of who the characters are supposed to be around each other. I have mostly a problem with the Stories or plots, the dialogue is well written in the case of the Villain usually, but here's hoping the next issue gets much better with the return of Batman.

    All around a decent read, and it sets the team up for a potentially exciting story in #25. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Tony Hammack Feb 16, 2018

    I felt that Caitlyn's story in this arc has been fantastic. Promethea, an Alan Moore creation, was underwhelming used in this issue. And, Batman is back. Read Full Review

    It's an enjoyable enough of a read and isn't bad, but for all its strengths, it will leave readers wanting more. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Feb 14, 2018

    Disappointingly average for a story that should have been epic. Orlando writes a few small character moments that land, but otherwise this was an anticlimactic, almost frustrating finale. The story was just getting started and now it's suddenly over, resulting in a story that feels largely incomplete. Some nice visuals and character moments sprinkled throughout elevate it ever so slightly, so it isn't a total loss, though it's far from satisfying. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Feb 14, 2018

    I'm glad this story is finally over, but I'm worried that we might be getting some filler in the next issues to tide us over until the series finale. The best part about this story has been Edwards' fantastic art, and I hope to see more of his work soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards Feb 15, 2018

    Edwards's art fluctuates back to characters' bigger expressions falling short at times. I can't quite put my finger on why, but the result is something of an Uncanny Valley effect, where the exaggeration of a given face far exceeds the amount of genuine emotion it conveys. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 16, 2018

    Given how controversial it was to bring Alan Moore and J.H. Williams III's Promethea to the DC Universe, you can't help but be disappointed in how inconsequential the character's appearance is in Justice League of America #24. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 14, 2018

    Steve Orlando ends his Might Beyond the Mirror story and while it had a very convoluted buildup, it deserved a better sendoff than this.  To say it fell flat is an understatement and even the controversy of Promethea joining in lead to nothing at all.  This book is one of the worst that DC puts on the shelf regularly and needs to end even sooner than it already is.
