Guest artist Paul Pelletier joins the JLU for a special storyline that sees Stargirl and the team of Steel, Robotman, Batgirl and Vandal Savage enter a war zone thats at once very familiar and utterly weird. Plus: the long awaited return of a legendary DC Comics hero.

    I had so much fun reading this issue and I can't wait for next month already.  Anyone who loves history (especially DC Comic history) will surely love what Jeff Parker is dishing out.  The combination of story and art make this book easy to recommend, so I will.  Highly Recommended.

    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. Nov 15, 2015

    Thanks to the allotted number of characters that pass through the lineup of the JLU and the nature of the story, this title is able to venture off into numerous genres and interesting dilemmas. The concept of Breakers could be an entire season or even a main driving force of a show. A time warped battlefield makes for great material, and having it tie back to Savage made the story worthwhile. I think these serve as great subplots to the overarching story dealing with Alanna and Adam Strange. This is just a fun title and I really enjoy it every time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 11, 2015

    As with the cast of characters in the previous adventure, "Justice League United" #13 brings in some inherent tension and drama simply by putting characters together in the same panels. Parker, Pelletier, Hunter, Cox and Wands provide some great character studies in this comic, giving fans of specific solo characters moments to smile over while also reminding the readership (and maybe even DC) of the lush history and opulent tapestry of the DC Universe. With Parker and Pelletier on task, each one of these characters becomes more intriguing, with the lesser-knowns getting a nice turn in the spotlight. If this issue's cover holds any clues, readers are in for even more fun in the upcoming issues of "Justice League United" #13. Whoever joins the story will certainly have my attention, as Parker seems to have a knack for finding the resonance in most characters and Pelletier consistently delivers strong, lively art.

    The Rainbow Hub - Sam Riedel Sep 13, 2015

    With that said, just as the last arc was a Poison Ivy/Swamp Thing story first and foremost, this one looks like a Vandal Savage story, which is not something you get to see very often. Since Demon Knights ended, Savage has practically been a ghost, which is a shame; an immortal, hyper-intelligent caveman is the sort of character cape comics were made to support. Seeing his exploits in WWII is cool enough, but to see the consequences of those actions play out 70-odd years later when Savage least expects it? Now that's something to see. Once again, the excellent JLU team produces an equally excellent team adventure. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Sep 10, 2015

    One of the hardest things to admit about Justice League United is that it's a book with very high aspirations and often doesn't meet them. It's still a fun romp that uses its place as part of a larger interconnected superhero universe far better than a lot of ongoing books. Jeff Parker delivers a great cast of fan favorites and Paul Pelletier has fun playing with them, but minor art details suck the fun out and make it less of what it could be. Though this seems negative, the enthusiasm behind this book is infectious and with what else awaits for the Justice League in this warzone it'd be a loss to pass this up. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Sep 11, 2015

    Overall I liked the change in direction for this series, and I will definitely go back to read exactly how Adam Strange became trapped within the zeta beam. I think its an interesting twist for the character to become an almost prophetic or precognitive oracle…somehow breaking through the space/time barrier to see which characters are needed to accomplish the task at hand.

    IGN - Levi Hunt Sep 10, 2015

    The idea of Justice League United is so much fun " throw together a disparate group of heroes and villains from every corner of the DC Universe and see how they react. That idea is beautifully executed on in this issue with so many interesting character interactions and silly twists, but it's everything around that idea that falls flat here. Read Full Review

    DC Collectors - Wayland Smith Sep 18, 2015

    I like the idea behind the team, and I've been enjoying what they've done so far. This is one of the few remaining DC books I'm getting, but I think I'll be sticking with it a while. Read Full Review
