    As worried as the first issue left me, my concerns have vanished. Johns, Janin and the rest of the creative team have a firm direction and a wide cast to draw from to deliver what could be the team book of 2023. This one definitely has my attention now. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jan 24, 2023

    Whether its Johns, the art, the story, the topic, or all of the above, Justice Society of America feels important. It feels like an event. And Justice Society of America #2 continues to push the series in that direction. Sometimes, a comic just gives off the vibe of importance. Many times, Event Comics feel that way. Now, I understand that Justice Society of America isnt technically an event BUT it definitely should be. The pacing, the questions, the intricate plot threads, and the time manipulation make for amazing speculations and fan theories that should spark your interest for the next few weeks. I highly recommend giving Justice Society of America #2, as well as picking up issue one while you are at it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jan 26, 2023

    The world building continues as Johns, Janin, Ordway and Kolins deliver another great issue of this new series. The details bring out so much in the story as the nostalgia anchors the new elements. This book looks great, it's fun and by having Helena on a journey of discovery, it allows readers to see things through her eyes. So if you don't know what's going on, neither does she and even a new reader can discover this corner of the DC Universe with her. Read Full Review

    This is an odd series, and it's only made more unpredictable by the shifting art styles. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 24, 2023

    All three artists deliver fantastic art in the issue. I love the different styles and how the not only complement each other, but also the period the story takes place in. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - Neil Vagg Jan 25, 2023

    The mystery deepens as we follow Huntress on her time-hopping adventures. Whilst the changes in artwork can be jarring, the dedication to following different timelines makes Justice Society of America a brilliant exploration of DC's legacy. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 25, 2023

    Justice Society of America #2 follows a pattern of Johns' recent work where the whole tends to be stronger than the individual part. While this issue doesn't excite, it has references DC fans will appreciate, you just need to know the history. Hopefully, it all comes together eventually in a way everyone can enjoy it, but as is, this is for the diehard fans. Read Full Review

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

    Periodically over the years, DC has had a habit of looking back to the earliest era of superheroes with fresh eyes. It takes the right kind of writer to see it from a fresh perspective in a way that feels truly new. Between this and the new Stargirl mini-series, Johns is definitely taking a novel look at the old era. The art brings the reality of a bygone era to the page with a sharply stylish execution. This sort of thing has been done before, but Johns and company are bringing it to the page in a thoroughly enjoyable way.  Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 24, 2023

    Justice Society of America #2 continues Huntress's trippy adventure through time with an issue that's more confusing than satisfying. The art's first-rate, and the character cameos are interesting in their brief moments, but the constant jumping back and forth needs to be held together into a story you can follow. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jan 28, 2023

    All the pieces of this story look and read great, but the whole thing is a little too up in the air for my tastes so far, even if we're only at two issues. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jan 24, 2023

    Justice Society Of America #2 is as amazing as it is erratic. Janin, Kolins, and Ordway are killing it with the artwork, as are Bellaire and Kalisz on colors. Leigh's lettering is perfect in position and pace. But the continual back-and-forth time jaunts have already grown tiresome. This new era of starting a series with the main characters not present, for they need to be 'found,' is also a nuisance. Read Full Review

    While there's plenty to pick at in Justice Society of America #2, the series appears to have found its footing and with some additional space may even find a substantial story hook. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 26, 2023

    It's great to see Ordway in comics again, but the script is still playing far too coy and the storytelling juxtaposition of Janin and Kolins might as well be different dimensions for how awkward the transition points are. Read Full Review
