    This three-way dance might not have made good on the title promise, but it was an excellent start to what should be a very fun crossover event. Read Full Review

    Nerd Initiative - Ken M. Oct 17, 2023

    Combining some of Pop Cultures biggest characters in one book is a challenege onto itself. The creative team of Buccallato, Duce and Guerrero give fans an unforgettable first impression with incredible writing mixed with energetic visuals. Theres no way after reading the first issue readers wont be counting down the days for the next round at the LCS! Read Full Review

    Duce delivers some beautifully detailed and visually dynamic art throughout the issue. The characters look fantastic and the titans are beautifully rendered both in detail and scale. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Seth A. Romo Oct 17, 2023

    Issue #1 is a strong kick off to establish the characters and overall plot of what to expect but I wish there was more action in this issue. Fans of the different properties will still be excited for the glimpse of monsters but will definitely be left ready for more. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 17, 2023

    This isn't any sort of essential, groundbreaking story, but it's basically exactly what I'd expect a book with this title to read like. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Oct 19, 2023

    Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong #1 was a blast to read. Buccellato delivers a compressed story that perfectly blends world-building with character work and action-heavy scenes. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Oct 17, 2023

    Justice League Vs. Godzilla Vs. King Kong #1 is straightforward, fun, entertaining, and provides one heck of a Godzilla and King Kong. Even though the plot seems a bit too elementary, it's super easy to follow and allows for anyone to join in. If you have the spare cash, I recommend DC fans give it a shot. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Oct 27, 2023

    I'd think the Leaguers would be able to handle the monsters pretty easily so my guess is Toyman's gem will amp them up a bit.  This was a carnival ride of fun. I can only hope the whole series keeps up this pace, action, and entertaining lunacy! It's so fun I can overlook the plot twists required to put all the pieces on the chessboard. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 25, 2023

    There's no way series like this could live up to its potential or what anyone could expect from it. But it's nice to see them trying, even if it's just an opportunity for DC and company to make some money. There's a great respect for every significant property that is being displayed in the series. But they remain properties for the most part. Not actual characters that feel terribly fleshed-out at the end of the first issue. How much is doubtlessly going to come in time as the series progresses? Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 18, 2023

    Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong #1 is exactly what you'd expect and want and is great because of that. It begs you to just sit back and enjoy the ride, taking you on an adventure that can only happen in comics. I have no doubt what's to come will be predictable with the Justice League teaming up with Godzilla and Kong to fight the Legion of Doom but who cares, this is a wild journey to just sit back, enjoy, and not think too much about.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Oct 22, 2023

    JL vs. Godzilla vs. Kong #1 is a pretty standard superhero comic, but it has flashes of fun like the Legion of Doom breaking into the Fortress of Solitude that's thwarted by someone who never should have been on the team in the first place. It'll be interesting to see if the quality gets better when we see more of Godzilla and Kong. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Eric Thomas Oct 17, 2023

    Though it's a rocky start to a blockbuster event, it's a fun and unexpectedly heartfelt stage setter that builds up to a confrontation with just enough nuance to save it. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Matthew Aguilar Oct 18, 2023

    Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong is off to a strong start, and if it can strike a balance in "screen time" between the heroes, villains, and monsters, we could be in for a great time. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Oct 17, 2023

    There's nothing offensive about this issue. It's not poorly written or ugly to look at. It just feels lifeless. Like the corporate product it was meant to be. I can't recommend this to someone but I can't say to avoid it like the plague. Maybe you've always wanted this kind of story to happen, in which case, have at it!
