    Overall, Justice League of America #28 was a great read! The book is action paced, the story is well done, and Ryan Choi really shows off as the Atom in this issue! The story isn't over yet though as we find Ahl bloodied and defeated towards the end of the issue and I'm not sure what exactly that means for the League or for the future of Earth's heroes! Definitely looking forward to the next issue! Read Full Review

    Batman's Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Apr 10, 2018

    Justice League of America #28 is the penultimate issue of a book that has been a real treat, and Im sad that things have to end. Not many of the characters from this team have been teased as part of the League moving forward, with the exceptions being Batman (of course) and Lobo, who is at least involved with No Justice. Still, getting nearly 30 issues with this eclectic and disparate group has been a treat, and issues like this illustrate why. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 12, 2018

    Justice League of America #28 is another impressive installment from Orlando, Petrus, and Hi-Fi. The story flows well, has a lot of action, and even edges out a couple of thoughts about the superhero genre. Chronos is a great villain, and his dynamic with Ryan Choi is compelling. This one gets a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    I wish the bulk of the League were given more to do, but its still a darn good Atom vs Chronos tale. Read Full Review

    Steve Orlando is having a blast writing this book, and it's hard not to go along for the ride. While the plot is a little light and the driving conflict isn't as pressing as it needs to be, this issue succeeds as pure entertainment. With generally impressive visuals and an undeniable sense of adventure, I had more fun reading this issue of Justice League of America than I have any other comics in the past few weeks. It's like playing with your favorite action figures alongside your best friends, which I'd like to think is high praise. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 11, 2018

    Overall, with one issue to go, this series may not have been perfect, but it calls back to the classic Justice League runs that featured odd characters playing off the icons. I'm hoping Orlando gets a big new project soon, and that the upcoming titles keep some of this series' spirit. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Apr 11, 2018

    Overall, this was a fun issue, but it was lacking in forward movement of the plot. Orlando pretty much ends the book one beat after he begins it, with a lot of fighting in-between. Thankfully, there were some nice character moments for the newer heroes on the team, so it wasnt a complete loss. However, the upcoming issues in the arc will have to keep the story moving, and provide more background on Ahl, or risk getting mid-story lag. Read Full Review

    A high-concept issue featuring strong art and character work and a central premise that may not work for all readers. Read Full Review

    I really enjoy this story until Ahl is in a panel; otherwise, it is an extremely fun and action-packed story. Read Full Review

    This book does succeed in moving the JLA story along; too bad the story itself isn't very interesting. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jonathan Edwards Apr 25, 2018

    There's only one issue left of Steve Orlando's Justice League of America and thank merciful God. Frankly, it's astonishing this book made it this far. Between all of the preachy superficial morals, half-baked story arcs, underdeveloped characters, misrepresented characters, illogic, mean-spiritedness, condescension, and blatant lack of genre-savviness, this has been an utterly miserable and mediocre trod. I'm not especially looking forward to Justice League: No Justice, and it's a damn shame that Priest's Justice League run is also ending to facilitate it. But, there's no way that Snyder, Tynion, and Williamson can do any worse with that series then Orlando's done with this one. Read Full Review

    A simple, and more engaging than average, story from this not so great run. I like Chronos as a villain and reading this just made me want an Atom ongoing, as long as the writer is someone competent.

    I don't really have much to say about this one. There's probably interesting concepts in here but Orlando just isn't good at executing them. His writing is best described as by-the-numbers. Nothing feels like it's done with any passion or heart. Or any effort. It's completely the bare minimum. And that makes it mediocre. Which is the worst thing any entertainment can be. If it's bad, you can have fun trashing it. But if it's simply mediocre and boring, there's no fun to be had. This series exemplifies mediocrity.
