"SEAS OF CHANGE" part one! It's the dawn of a new era for the Justice League of China! The New Super-Man of China and his teammates have struck out on their own, and even the Ministry's newly formed Lantern Corps is no match for this renegade force to be reckoned with! But as China's superhero community reorganizes itself, trouble is brewing in North Korea...and from the depths emerges a new metahuman that will change everything.

    One issue into the new direction, this is probably a better Teen Titans book than any actual Teen Titans book we've gotten in years. It's got the appealing characters, a great team dynamic, and a legitimate and unique threat. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 21, 2018

    So overall a nice 'first issue' for this 'new title'. You meet all the League members and get a decent idea of their personalities. We get the internal Yin/Yang debate. We get the Corps. And we get the Korean Aquaman. That's a pretty good trip down this title's buffet. I hope people give it a try. This has been an entertaining and engaging book from the beginning. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Lu Feb 14, 2018

    We're only just getting started with Ahn's journey and with his giant crabs already in the sights of the Justice League of China by the time this issue ends, it seems like things are going to escalate quite quickly. New Super-Man and the Justice League of China is an absolutely singular title in DC's current line up, so if you haven't tried it yet, now is definitely the time to give it a shot. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Feb 13, 2018

    New Super-Man and the Justice League of China is funny and pleasant and a nice change of pace. Some might call it blasphemy, but come on, it's just a comic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Feb 14, 2018

    Our inaugural issue of NS-M&tJLC kicks off with a bang, and a great entry point for new readers. Some old faces, some new faces...some faces behind opaque masks that are presumably new. I couldn't be more excited to see how this story develops! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Feb 18, 2018

    New Super-Man and the Justice League of China disappointed me with its lack of creativity regarding its membership, but it was still a charming and fun enough read so that I didnt walk away unhappy. This one isnt a must-read, but it is a fun time if you choose to pick it up. Feel free to give it a try. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 19, 2018

    A new status quo, a talented new artist, intricate and clever plotting plus the ingenious use of some old DC characters makes for a nice read. Read Full Review

    While the art leaves much to be desired, this issue is an entertaining jumping on point for the series. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Feb 16, 2018

    Overall, this issue was a decent introduction to the new direction of the book, but it could have really driven home the point that the Justice League of China is an outlaw group now, and given them a clear mission statement. Instead, the team just bumbles around, going from fight to fight, and moving forward in no particular direction. At this point, its unclear if the team is supposed to be rudderless, or if its just a lack of long-term planning by Yang, but the story is intriguing enough to hold the audiences interest for the moment.

  • 6.0 - Chase Magnett Feb 14, 2018

    It's pleasant to watch the team interact and fight a villain who is perfectly fit for no more than one issue. Nothing in the small interactions or big fight of the issue will offer awe, but they're all adequately told. Read Full Review
