    Justice Society of America #3 shows us who Degaton is and what his motives are. It showcases excellence and master talents when it comes to embracing the past while enjoying what is the future. I can not wait to see what twists this story has for us, even as the pain is imminent with a title for the next issue being "The Death of The JSA". I am down for the ride and will see you next time!

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Mar 14, 2023

    Justice Society of America #3 is another fantastic chapter in "The New Golden Age. The execution is great, and the nostalgia is still strong. The character and world building makes this an engaging series as the JSA and Huntress come together to stop longtime foe, Degaton. Like most great stories, it's a journey. If the DC Universe is going to continue to grow it will be because series like this expand beyond the real of the Bat-Family, and this is a great place to start. Read Full Review

    This is the best Per Degaton has been used as a villain in a long time, and this series is definitely worth the longer waits. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Mar 14, 2023

    Sure, I get it. This sounds like the issue is bad. However, its far from terrible. Johns is an outstanding storyteller and is merely fortifying his narrative to give the characters tangibility and depth. Its a very important element of any story. Nonetheless, my desire was to at least gain some type of reveal or wow moment to continue to hook me for the next installment. Readers, Justice Society of America #3 is still a well-written issue complimented masterfully by Mikel Jann and Jerry Ordway making the story easy on the eyes. However, dont enter this story expecting huge reveals or mind-blowingly clever plot threads that will cause you to think like a Johns comic has been prone to do in the past. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 15, 2023

    There have been quite a few different attempts to give the Huntress the kind of spotlight shes deserved. Shes by no means the title character of this particular series, but Johns and company seem to have found a vehicle for her that gives her the right balance between heroism and vulnerability to make her FEEL like a title character in her own book. Given the right momentum, this particular incarnation of the Justice Society is making a strong case for a deeper focus on the Huntress. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Mar 14, 2023

    The action comes to the modern day as Huntress meets the JSA, and things look like they'll move forward until the villain arrives. Geoff Johns, Mikel Janin, Jerry Ordway, and Jordie Bellaire bring the goods from the past and the present to keep the excitement high and build for a showdown. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 18, 2023

    The individual scenes are fun to read, with a lot of mileage in characters interacting and dealing with the strange happenings of the plot. But the overall story has yet to pull me in. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 14, 2023

    Justice Society of America #3 makes it difficult to keep reading this title because there appears to be little plot or direction to ground the story. There's an intriguing mystery at the heart of the series, but excessive time jumps, random scene transitions, and a general lack of focus keep the mystery buried under a lot of noise.

    I really hope things can turn around soon. I was actually excited to see the JSA return and interact with the new DC universe in new and exciting ways, but it looks like Johns is gonna Johns, at least for a little bit. Still holding out hope, though! Read Full Review
