    When did Scott Snyder become so verbose? It's like he really wants to write a novel instead of comics. I hated his third person narration / exposition in this. There's some decent ideas presented here. The problem is there are too many concepts. Snyder has to learn to edit himself. He just added all those stupid metals in Dark Knights: Metal. Now he's also creating seven new energies? Enough's enough. There's enough energies existing in the DC universe to use them without creating a bunch of new When did Scott Snyder become so verbose?

Enough's enough. There's enough energies existing in the DC universe to use them without creating a bunch of new nonsense readers have to wrap their heads around. Snyder's shown here and in No Justice that he is not very good at being Grant Morrison. Morrison does do a lot of high concept stuff. But he presents it in a way that's less dense and more understandable. Snyder is feeding us high concept stuff with a fire hose. I did like Snyder's treatment of Luthor. He's really the main character in this arc. The art is fantastic. I'm glad they brought the big guns out for what should be one of DC's top-tier titles. Received a review copy from DC and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    So dense and challenges readers. World: The art is amazing, the splash pages, the characters with their personality, the colors, this book is very pleasing to the eyes. Of course, it gets to even more amazing when Jorge is drawing...gorgeous. The world building is probably the biggest and the most challenging thing of the book, it is awe inspiring.

Snyder is the new Grant Morrison, he takes the past and gathers it together and adds his own and makes something grand. If you loved the world building that he did with Dark Nights Metal and Justice League No Justice, creating a larger and broading universe for the DC characters to play in than this Justice League book is for you. It not only takes the past such Kirby’s Source Wall and the ideas behind (yes Claremont first name it the Source) but along with the the other cosmic forces of the DC universe like the Speed Force, has created something more. At the same time honoring and taking pieces of the current run from other books and not leaving them out, such as the Still Force with Joshua Williamson and the Sage Force used in the past. Snyder is rolling a lot of these ideas all together into something amazing, much like what Morrison did with Multiversity and the Multiverse map created there. It’s ambitious, it’s all emcompassing and Snyder is not done. There is a sense of overwhelming at time with the sheer amount of information and Snyder does ask readers to think about the universe and understand and see all the moving pieces. This world challenges, it’s not a basic cardboard backdrop of “oh no aliens are coming to attack us and we must save the Earth” stage that so many team up books easily fall back on. This is Snyder’s first arc which sets the world in motion so that moving forward all the rest of the stories and all the other writers that follow him have something wonderous to play with both large scale or small. Story: The narrative is large, it’s grand and often overwhelming with the amount that’s happening and the forces and characters that are put in place as the story progresses. It’s not a linear story where all the pieces are immediately there for readers to pick at, the story is not simple, it’s not cliched and not mindless. As I said above, there is no simple “aliens are coming” story here, this is a world building story, this is about constructing the rules and the ideals of the characters and also the team. It asks big questions about the idea of Justice and what it means. It poses the idea of the Legion of Doom and what they represent? If Justice is to be more than ourselves than Doom is to be honest and truly be ourselves. It is two views colliding with each other, about seeing that man is by nature good, or self serving and questioning what ‘Evil’ is. The pacing is breakneck and there are often times when the art and the story don’t catch up to the scope and the intention of Snyder (this is one of the issues of this first arc). There are a lot of pieces and ideas and characters at play and sometimes there are too many broad strokes which confusing and overwhelm readers, this is a book that requires a reread. I won’t go into details with the story as I don’t want to spoil it but go into it expecting to be challenged, expecting to think about what you’ve read and what Snyder is trying to say with these characters and what they represent. This book feels like Westworld with it’s narrative style, and Jeff Vandermeer’s ‘Southern Reach Trilogy’ with it’s science and concepts, that is amazing. I finished the story overwhelmed, needing to breath, needing to think, need to put the pieces together, when I did I looked back and I saw something different, something that changed the DC Universe and for a team up book that’s fucking amazing. Characters: There are a lot of characters here so it’s natural there are not a lot of quiet moments. A lot of the characterizations rely on preexisting knowledge of these characters and their archetypes and it’s great cause Snyder plays on these and makes readers think. Most team books have lack of character buildling and it’s a problem with team books in general with the limited page count and the amount of characters so this is not new at all. What Snyder has done here is use our expectations of these characters and extend what they are to represent something bigger. Luthor is this, Clark is that, Manta represents this, Sinestro can mean that (I’m not getting into it so I don’t spoil it). Having these characters deal with the forces around them and also representing them makes sense cause it also makes readers understand why these characters are here in the first place. Then there’s Luthor, wow Snyder made him amazing. Much like ‘Legion’ the tv series and quite many different books and tv shows using him as narrator is great, not only does he tell us why the Legion of Doom exists but being seen from the point of view of the ‘villains’ the drive and the ideas behind this first arc take on something different, not quite shiny and bright but something real and raw. Not the deepest of characters but done so well. I really liked this first arc, it’s not perfect there are some pacing issues and sometimes the story is too big for the book itself but the scope and the ambition and what it does for the DC universe moving forward is pretty awe inspiring. I love book that challenge readers and asks them to read again and pay attention and connect the pieces and this is a prime example of that. Onward to the next book! *read individual issues*

The thing that annoys me to no end is that Snyder made himself into some sort of Grant Morrison wannabe, even a borderline vapid copycat, without even trying to understand what actually makes Morrison's stories so good, opting instead to just rip off his themes and character traits and cramming his comics with endless dialogue and narration boxes full of nonsensical gibberish. This comic gave me headaches on three separate days, and I can't take it any more! Fuck off, book. And I don't think I want to bother with any more comics by Snyder.

The page with the Joker creeping up behind a certain member of the League with a chainsaw is probably my favorite piece of comics art so far this year. Seeing the Hall of Justice and the Legion of Doom was actually a lot of fun. The not so good: I know that villains are supposed to be opposite versions of the heroes, but here it is just WAY too "on the nose". "Oh no, Flash has to go up against the Still Force and Green Lantern has to fight the Invisible Light Spectrum!". They are teasing that every member is going to have an "opposing force". So do you fight Batman with the Anti-Karate force? I loooooooove everything to do with all of the lanterns, but do we need yet another new corps (especially when the ones that we have are already so underused)? No. The answer is no. This story is DENSE. It took me two days to get through it and I still can't really explain everything that happened. Issue 5 is a flashback issue that kind of brings the story to a screeching halt. The "the villains could have won if only they had killed the hero when they had the chance rather than saying 'I'll kill you later' for no reason" trope. Did this book blow my hair back and send me into seizures of joy? Nope, but it's definitely a good start and I will definitely be checking out the next volume.

    Not bad. Better than no Justice. The thing with Justice League is that it's not always easy to write about a group of gods who are nearly unbeatable. So scott snyder decides to bring back the injustice squad. Doom squad. Evil versions to go head to head with the justice league. With Lex back to being evil will he be able to take down the justice league with his own league? Good: art is great. Some awesome fights in this one. The dialogue can be really well done. Especially from flash or superman Not bad. Better than no Justice. The thing with Justice League is that it's not always easy to write about a group of gods who are nearly unbeatable.

Also the evil justice league been done alot. A 3 out of 5. A decent start. I hope continues to get better.

    I’ve been reading comics for a few years now. While I’ve read many eras of DC over the years, Rebirth was the first time I thought I’d follow series as they came out instead of trades as I usually had. I’ve mostly enjoyed the experience with the books I’ve picked, save the initial run of Justice League. The first Rebirth issue was okay. It was a fun, although bizarre, introduction to the new era of the league. But something was off.

It was a fun, although bizarre, introduction to the new era of the league. But something was off. Hitch’s storytelling felt disjointed and soulless, and ultimately fell flat for me (I hung in the first full storyline and then left). I’ve heard that even after I signed off the series, most found the rest of the run similar. Then Snyder comes along, fresh off of Metal, and throws complex Sanderson-esque rule based storytelling into justice league. I’ll admit while the issue-to issue read can be confusing at times with all of his rules, Snyder injects a lot of craziness and fun back into the title. And there is a lot to keep track of here: a totality (which may be a controlling mechanism to the multiverse) comes hurtling to earth, throug the broken Source Wall rippling time along its way (ala Metal). It’s power can be accessed (?) once seven forces of nature are unlocked. One of the time ripples of the totalities approach leads Luthor to find a magic doorknob in the past with a symbol on it representing these seven forces. Sinestro also found a book in the past about them too. Two forces are unlocked; the emotional spectrum and the slow force (in the form of a fourth reincarnated Flash villain, the Turtle). The emotional spectrum is tied to some purple other dimensional planet that sinestro wants to use to consume earth, and he enslaved earths inhabitants with the spectrum. All this while Superman and Martian Manhunter are trying to walk towards the Totality to inspect it with Batman and Hawkgirl shrunk riding inside their respective bodies for protection. Oh and lex and the Legion of Doom are also collecting these forces, and Lex and joker are hidden away waiting to attack Batman and hawkgirl in the respective bodies too. If that sounds like a lot, it is. If I got something wrong, apologies, but can you blame me? All in all this feels like a part one in an ongoing story leading to bigger things. After all, even after the resolution, there’s only two forces unlocked and a huge hole in Source Wall...and the moon was blown up (right?). It’s a lot of fun. But walk in prepared for insanity and rules galore. Recommended to read in one sitting.

    The pros outweigh the cons in Snyder's Justice League debut. This story is very, very 'out there' and sometimes struggles to make a lot of sense. Plus the resolutions at the end... eh. But I like where this is going. I like the characterization. I love the emphasis on John Stewart and J'onn J'onzz. The villains are well written, and the art is solid across the board. A lot to like, but far from perfect.

    The artwork was good--some parts even felt like throwbacks to other eras of the comics. The story felt scattered. There was just too much going on. At times, the heroes seemed to be working all on their own instead of as a league. Having read Dark Nights: Metal, I was expecting more, and this one just wasn't as good. I wish it had more working as a team and less exposition. **Read via NetGalley

    A bit frustrated with Jim Cheung only doing the first issue. What was the point of that? Jimenez is fine as far as mainstream superheroics go, but can't artists at least do an arc first before departing? I liked this more than Snyder's usual stuff; he's still doing a Morrison riff but this held better, though there are still small annoyances like lack of commas, and everyone loves to say "damn" too much (even the omniscient narrator...?).

    I received a copy of this novel in advance from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.I think a good rule of thumb to go by is that Scott Snyder will never leave you disappointed. I enjoyed this revamp of the Justice League and its tie into Dark Nights: Metal, but I think those unaware of the Metal storyline will be left lost and confused.

So, while this is essentially volume one of the Justice League, the more prior knowledge you have of the league and their Metal adventures, the better.That being said, I always enjoy a graphic novel where Batman is heckled by his friends for being Batman. It seems to bring everyone together and Batman always ends up proving his worth-solidifying his position within the league. I found the art vibrant and captivating, lingering on pages just so that I could take in every minute detail. In the end, if you are a fan of the Justice League and/or if you enjoyed the storyline of Dark Nights: Metal, then this graphic novel is for you.

    Edit: While this review may seem overly harsh, it's because I'm used to so much more from Snyder. His work is usually so nuanced, heart-felt, tight and oh-so-clever (see AD:After Death, American Vampire, Batman: Death of the Family) that this just seemed like it was either dialled in, or was he was under too much pressure from DC to get everything 'Totality' in there. In truth, this arc could have been stretched over another 6 issues and it would have made for a classic run. Words. So. Many.

And Snyder was obviously in a 1 v 1 match with Trump as to who knew all the best ones! This overly wordy, and ever-so-earnest re-re-re-launch of the JL has it's moments of clarity, but overall it's an overstuffed mess. Panels are crowded and noisy, and there's no coherent flow between them. This is a major issue as it detracts from some truly fantastic art and colour work. I'm not sure how long this iteration of JL will last, but I hope they start to pump Snyder with inhibitors before he gets completely out of control.

    I'm never sure what to expect from Scott Snyder. He's never boring, but with him relaunching the Justice League, I was worried that we'd get wacky retcons and a need to tie everything together. The idea of bringing the Legion of Doom together sounded like fun (if possibily forced). In the end, this is some of my favorite work from Snyder.

It can be a little challenging to hold all the pieces together as a reader (and maybe reading Metal would have helped), but it works out in the end. The story has a universal threat, funny dialogue, and nice character arcs. This volume both sets up plenty to come and functions as a (more or less) self-contained story (given some previous storylines showing up here as well as the obvious groundwork for the next stretch of the series). I'd jumped off JL some time ago, but Snyder's made it worth following again. [Based on a NetGalley ARC]

    Snyder seems to get better (or I'm getting used) to his take on Justice League with every new instalment. I think he works better when not in "event" mode and working with the team as whole rather than them all off doing their own thing. It's also the quintessential Justice League with all their heavy hitters as well as guest stories featuring the legion of doom. The pace is fast and the ideas harken back to classic comics where no idea is too sill OTT (a celestial body is destroyed right at the Snyder seems to get better (or I'm getting used) to his take on Justice League with every new instalment.

And the artwork is great matching the frenetic pace - Snyder's one of those authors who seems to get all the great artists working with him. Good fun and so far doesn't expect me to buy tie-in books.

    4.5 stars! Snyder almost hits a home run in this volume collecting the first six issues of the current series and cements his place as one of the best writers out there today. There are some big ideas presented here, ideas that look to have major ramifications for the DCU. Barring some slightly clunky dialogue in places, Snyder does a great job keeping each issue really interesting. Jimenez's art is jaw-dropping in places. The story presented within looks like it will play out over 1 or 2 more v 4.5 stars!

    Takes the whole Totality/Source Wall arc to new levels of bonkers, as the Justice League and the Legion of Doom fight to determine the very nature of the universe. Lots of fun here, but you won't appreciate it quite so much unless you've read the whole Metal event, and the No Justice limited series that spills into this one. Snyder's on point as usual, molding some pretty powerful clay here, and the art is high end for a monthly.

    This was a blast to read with each character getting their chance to shine while the team investigates a new, or rather old beyond imagining, force that could reshape reality itself. Luthor, Joker, and the rest of the Legion of Doom give the League one of their biggest challenges. Iprobably would have rated this 5 stars if I had read the stories leading up to this one.

    Welcome to the Totality Crisis on Omniearths. Or something. This has more scale-changing, more random-Greek-prefix-verses, and more stupid, stupid Macguffins of the Sacred Doodad of the Thingummarses from The Nowhere Realm of Beelzehenry kind than any old-school Crisis event. And it's just as crap. If not more so.

    Seems like such a long time since the Justice League has been good that you don’t actually notice until this breath of fresh air circulates! Old heroes, old villains that all feel so new because they haven’t been used in so long. A real challenge for the league rather than just seeing them in a semi post apocalyptic scenario, again.
