    Justice Society of America #6 provides enjoyment and also shows what the heart of a team is. Morals and character in action. Brava! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 5, 2023

    This is sort of a breather issue in that there's no big battle, but it's funny given that this might be the most packed comic I've read in a while. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Christopher Franey Sep 5, 2023

    Justice Society of America #6 captures what the Society is about: Family, Legacy, and Learning. Johns and guest artist Marco Santucci craft a fantastic issue that takes the Society back to what makes them stand out from the JLA: earnest character moments. This issue was much calmer but rewarded readers of the New Golden Age by showing these stories payoff, plus the increased release frequency capitalizes on the team's energy! Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Sep 5, 2023

    Readers, this non-action-packed, mellow, suspense-less display was extremely uncharacteristic of what Johns normally puts out. The art was uneventful and the story was way too simple and flat. Any issue that could be summarized in one sentence is normally not worth the buy. And sadly, thats the case this week. If youve been reading along like I have, maybe you get it to be that completionist. Otherwise, maybe you just pass this week, pick up Justice Society of America #7, and not miss a beat. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Sep 5, 2023

    Justice Society of America #6 is an exciting start to a new story arc. It's character focused and sets the stage for what's to come. The fate of the Lost Children has been an intriguing plot line since the beginning of Stargirl: The Lost Children. Their story naturally continues here. The emotional tension between Bruce and Helena is fantastic and it's great to see Helena and Karen's friendship as the cornerstone of the future of the JSA! Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Chase Magnett Sep 6, 2023

    The energy present in the second arc of Justice Society of America recalls Johns' earliest work at DC Comics on the same title in a warm fashion that promises this series' best days still lie ahead of it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 7, 2023

    Justice Society of America #6 is as good a setup issue as you could hope for when the Golden Age sidekicks, lost to Time, find their way into the modern world for the beginning of a new super team. Johns's character setup and introductions are charming, and Santucci keeps a dialog-heavy issue visually appealing, but it's too soon to tell where this max-series is headed or if it's worth continuing.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 18, 2023

    The comic also spends more time with the evolving status quo the Huntress has made with Batman, and her plans now that she seems permanently stuck in a past where she hasn't yet been born. For longtime DC readers, there's also a fun interaction between Khalid Nassour and Kent Nelson‘s sidekick Salem Nader which attempts to explain the bizarre history of Dr. Fate over the past 40 years. Let's just say it's complicated. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Cam Lipham Sep 6, 2023

    The issue falls flat of that original run, however, even with my ever-souring opinions of Johns' works. This isn't new ground, nothing original is happening. It's frankly quite boring. Read Full Review
