    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Sep 4, 2014

    Johns clearly is energized by this arc and by the idea of putting Luthor on the League, and the result is a book that finally, at long last, seems to be the kind of Justice League book we all dreamed we'd be getting from him all along. If DC can just let the book go along for a while without wrapping it into other events, then we could get our first classic arc of this run. It's now a book that's on the top of my pile.

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Sep 4, 2014

    Since I'm a big fan of Geoff Johns, I've been loving this title since the New 52 came into being, so I'm happy that the stories have been as entertaining as ever. If you haven't been reading them, I would recommend you give them a chance. Mr. Johns continues to update the League, making them relevant to today's readers and chock full of adventure!

    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Sep 4, 2014

    Artwise, the book looked great. Mahnke did a great job of handling all the character work and the action sequences looked fantastic, I really like the scene with Batman and Power Ring the dialogue was meaningful but the art made the scene powerful as Mahnke is a master at drawing emotion.

    A solid issue built around a fantastic moment. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Sep 5, 2014

    It's a good issue and it ends great as the team welcomes Lex Luthor. However, the issue can be a little anticlimactic, and I'm looking forward to see more of Doom Patrol. Hopefully we get to see more of Doom Patrol, and maybe its own ongoing series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 3, 2014

    Unfortunately, this issue doesn't do so well by the Doom Patrol. On the whole, Forever Evil and this arc have served as a solid reintroduction for the team. But the characters practically drop out of the story before the end of this issue, leaving sense of anticlimax and disappointment. Hopefully there are brighter days ahead for these troubled heroes.

    The characterization is excellent– you can practically feel the sliminess in Luthor's voice– and the Doom Patrol make a unique and intriguing addition to the New 52. All in all, a really solid issue. This series started off a bit rocky for me, but lately, it's really going smoothly. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Max Dweck Sep 4, 2014

    Justice League has been at a high point since the conclusion of Forever Evil, and Geoff Johns doesn't seem to be letting up now that the series has finally picked up some steam. Complaints about the Doom Patrol aside, this is a very enjoyable issue, and seems to be a good preview of things to come with the Lex Luthor/Justice League dynamic. Now there's just that matter of Captain Cold joining the League to address. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Sep 3, 2014

    Justice League #33 is a good issue, but not as great as previous ones. The lack of focus on most of the team here is very disappointing, along with a lack of Doom Patrol action. There are still pluses here, like the climax of the issue and the writing in general, so this isn't a bad issue like some may say. It's still good, but let's hope for some more attention for the rest of the cast in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Sep 3, 2014

    The Justice League is going through some changes. Too often team books continue down the same path and can end up feeling a little stagnant. Geoff Johns is shaking things up and having Lex Luthor around is like dropping a live grenade into the mix. While most of the issue focuses on the fighting between the Justice League and Doom Patrol, we get to see more developments for the future of this title. Doug Mahnke is tasked with drawing a huge amount of characters. Andrew Dalhouse's colors are fantastic. Things are changing for the Justice League and you won't want to miss what's developing.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Sep 3, 2014

    Yes, some of the problems inherent in Justice League still remain - the world's greatest heroes still feel like window dressing in their own team book, likely because their own solo titles still feel like they're in flux. The main draw of Justice League - watching DC's best and brightest interact - isn't really here yet. But as a rotating entree of different characters, Johns definitely has a handle on what makes them tick. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 5, 2014

    Justice League looks to be getting back on track, as though overcrowding may have been an issue, the ending and overall tension was truly wonderful. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Sep 5, 2014

    This is another fantastic issue in the current Justice League run. Theres action, heart, and depth something for every type of reader! Also, if you are a Doom Patrol fan, this is a no brainer. I highly recommend this book. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Sep 3, 2014

    We're four chapters into Geoff Johns' Injustice League storyline, and it's still a bit unnerving to see Lex Luthor fighting alongside the Justice League. That's the surreal gimmick behind this post-Forever Evil saga: bad guys making good. And while Luthor's fellow reformer Captain Cold is sitting this issue out, Johns is charging along with this intriguing tale of how and why the League would EVER allow someone as irredeemable as Lex Luthor to sit in the hallowed halls of the Watchtower. It's a concept too intriguing to pass up. The gimmick, it seems, is paying off. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Sep 5, 2014

    "Justice League" #33 continues to help the title feel like it's on a good path, post-"Forever Evil." With the changes to the team, there's a lot of promise for what's in store. I'd like to see a few less storylines per issue down the line (if only to keep from feeling like some of the stories are getting short-changed like we had here), but overall, a nice installment.

    Batman-News - Jesse Kennedy Sep 4, 2014

    Not a bad issue. After the delays, I've found myself a little more distant coming back to this title, but am glad to be reading it again. If we can get the next issue soon I will be really happy because all that's happening with this series is very interesting and has good potential. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 3, 2014

    I started this issue out all hyped to see the fate of Jessica Cruz and The New Doom Patrol, but by the end it just felt like a way to tell Luthor to suck it. Not much going on here, even though it finishes up the current plot line and gives us a new dimension to the Justice League stories. Mahnke's art this month didn't seem up to par with what he's been giving us and on top of the flat story, it just led to an uninteresting issue. Read Full Review
