    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk May 30, 2009

    Overall, the now Johns-less Justice Society of America, looks to be in good hands for the time being with a writer and penciller in Ordway who can definitely draw, and knows how to handle a team book where each character gets the proper amount of time, and hopefully continued, development, both of which have been the standard for JSA thus far.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 28, 2009

    This is not a done-in-one throwaway story, nor is it a simple inventory placeholder marking time until the next creative team settles into their chairs. This issue has ties to other areas of the DC Universe, from the Global Peace Agency to Bibbo to Fawcett City and the aforementioned All-Star Squadron. This issue gives readers a chance to come in on a level closer to the ground floor and given that it is delivered from the pen and pencil of Jerry Ordway, some of his fans might find this to be a nice treat and a welcome introduction to a book they could have overlooked.

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cohen May 29, 2009

    Im excited to read part two, even though this is a fill-in, I hope elements of Infinity Inc. and the All-Star Squadron are brought up again in the next issue because it really helps to understand the legacy of the team. Pick this one up and enjoy the nostalgia, excitement, action, and character relationships that you enjoyed when Johns was writing this title. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt May 29, 2009

    In the end, this issue is simply a boring affair with little to offer in terms of both the art and the writing. If you considered dropping the title after Geoff Johns left, that might not be a bad idea at this point. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault May 29, 2009

    Strong art, but weak writing. I wish I could recommend this book, but I can't. If this is what the next five or six issues are going to be like, I might think about dropping JSA from my list. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 6, 2009

    With any luck, this issue will lead into a fantastic new start for the original super-team, but this one ain't it. Read Full Review
