Review

Praise for JUSTICE LEAGUE:

"Moves forward quickly and gets the reader intrigued from the start."—YAHOO! Associated Content

"Welcoming to new fans looking to get into superhero comics for the first time and old fans who gave up on the funny-books long ago."—Complex Magazine

"Justice League is about as much fun as you can have reading a comic book."—MTV Geek

"Reis' manages to impress in a major way with his visuals."—IGN

"This is what "Justice League" should and can be: heroic adventures , world-threatening calamities and human interaction. Johns has found his stride on this book and it certainly helps that the art team of Reis, Prado and Reis have come along for the adventure.."—Comic Book Resources

Customer Reviews

As it is, however, the ending left a bitter taste in my mouth, and I can only say that “I liked it”.
W. Adams
For starters, there are only five issues here: 18-20 and 22-23 (21 is the conclusion of the Shazam arc so that's in the Shazam book) so that's not a lot of content.
Michael Bestvina
I have minor quibbles here but as a whole things were interesting and coming together nicely on a few levels.

DC Has done a lot of redundant, mystifying publishing with the new 52 (I think I have Batman #17 in 5 different books) but this somehow manages to be the worst yet!

For starters, there are only five issues here: 18-20 and 22-23 (21 is the conclusion of the Shazam arc so that's in the Shazam book) so that's not a lot of content. Secondly, the inclusion of 22 and 23 is essentially pointless here. These are part 1 and part 6 of the trinity war crossover (the other 4 were in JLA and JL dark) so you're getting the beginning and ending of a long and complex story. I read all the other parts before reading JL 23 but I have to imagine that issue 23 will make no sense to someone who only reads these two issues. Moreover, what JL fan isn't going to want to read the entire trinity war arc??? Why is DC not asking these questions? This collection is just foolish and you shouldn't give DC your money for it...

So how's the actual content? It's pretty entertaining but nothing special. Issues 18-20 revolve around the JL gettting some new members and lead into Trinity war. Tensions are high as Superman and Wonder Woman's relationship is keeping everyone on their toes. Meanwhile, an old villain shows up to the Justice League watchtower and the new members have to deal with him. A lot of what happens here is set up for Trinity War.

As for 22-23... Imagine if you bought a novel that had the first chapter and the last chapter... Yah, this collection is dumb. Here's the trinity war book:
http://www.amazon.com/Justice-League-Trinity-War-New/dp/1401245196/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1397672894&sr=1-1&keywords=justice+league+trinity+war
This contains all 6 chapters of trinity war and 5 extra tie-in issues. A much better value AND you get the entire arc!

13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Scott Knight on April 8, 2014
Format: Hardcover
In Justice League Vol. 4: The Grid, Geoff Johns has several storylines going on. The initial story concerns the expansion of the Justice League, as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the others recruit new members. This meets with mixed success, including someone who is not exactly what they seem.

The main storyline is part of the bigger Trinity War story that includes not only the Justice League, but the Justice League of America and Justice League Dark as well. Pandora's Box is the center of a mystery and opening it will unleash evil on the world.

I have mixed feelings about this collection. Geoff Johns is an excellent writer, but the initial story involving new Justice League members just didn't grab me. The characters just weren't that interesting to me. It may be my lack of familiarity with some of them, but this was just an average story for a writer who normally turns out spectacular work.

The crossover with the Trinity War is very cool, one of the bigger than life scenarios that the Justice League is made for. It was fun to see the characters from the different teams interact, with all of their baggage and previous history together. However, this book only has the Justice League part of the story. Readers looking for the entire story would do better to wait and pick it up as its own collection.

I like the Justice League, and would recommend this book to fans of Geoff Johns and the League. It's just not the best of the recent storylines.

I received a preview copy of this book from DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.

Incomplete stories! Beware!

If you are a collector of the New 52 Hardcovers, this is worth getting just to complete your JL collection. But beware - the gripes posted about the content are accurate. Yes, it contains JL issues 18-20 (that's good), but not 21 (included in a separate Shazam title since the JL are not in that issue). Then is it contains 22 and 23, which sounds logical but those are parts #1 and parts #6 of the Trinity War saga. So you are missing the middle 4 chapters, plus issues of Pandora and Constantine that you really should read to follow the story. Basically, the last half of the book is wasted paper. you can't read those issues out of context. No idea why they published this volume is such a bizarre manner.

So this is really a 3-issue HC... look for it used for $10 and you get you money's worth. Go get the worth-it Trinity War HC from DC for the rest (JL 22-23 are included there with all the rest of the story line in the order they should be read).

Man, it pisses me off to buy a graphic novel, start getting into it and realize that huge chunks of the story are missing from it! What's the point in compiling it into an incomplete collection?!? I bought this one as well as the Justice League Dark graphic novel that went along with it and, even by cross-referencing the two, I couldn't get a complete story out of it (or even figure out what the hell was going on). Boooooo, DC. Thumbs down.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of Justice League issues starts off being interesting enough. The League wants to expand its ranks and the title starts exploring other characters, then it escalates into the beginning of the Trinity War. Shortly after the action starts getting really good, there's a major jump to the end of the Trinity War, and the reader is sitting there having no clue what just happened or what is going on. There are new characters in the story without ever having been introduced, advancements of the characters we do know, even though we have no idea how they have happened or why, and lots of other confusion. To top it off, issue number 21 of the series is not even included in this collection, so technically Amazon's description of the collection is incorrect.

And so is revealed the major flaw in collecting trade paperbacks/hardcovers and issue collections such as this. With all of the crossover events and multi title arcs in comics these days, you often cannot read an entire storyline without being suckered into picking up multiple titles, and the publishers don't care enough to piece these books together in a way that makes sense for everyone. Unfortunately, casual readers such as I, who are always a few months behind on these books and only want to keep up with a few titles through hardcovers and paperbacks, suffer from this shortcoming of the publishers.

If you collect and read these books hoping to get a good JL story out of this volume, don't bother. If you want to read a complete story, you will have to look elsewhere, such as the Trinity War collection or the JLA trades.
