Endlessly dull.
The first bit revolves around Jessica (once again) trying to overcome fear and/or feelings of inadequacy.
I simply could not care less about these Green Lanterns and yet here they are again. But if you like these guys (and they do have a lot of fans!) then this might be a bigger winner overall for you.


The stuff with Mera was better, but it wasn't enough to salvage the entire volume, in my opinion. I am happy to see her take a spot on the

A bunch of shorter stories, mostly with guest creative teams. Most of these stories are just boring. I didn't think it was possible to make the Justice League boring until now. Bryan Hitch's storytelling is terrible. In the Endless story, The Flash is travelling backwards in time but it's told in this obtuse way that is confusing. Hitch comes back and writes #25. The whole thing is just one large info dump. I literally nodded off and had to force myself to finish. The only story that stood out w ...more

Somehow I've missed reading JL up to this point but it was easy for me to jump in as the characters have been in other titles I'm following (ie The Flash & Green Lanterns specifically tied to this volume). We have a set of three separate stories but the whole theme is that the League (and the planet) are to be DOOMED in the near future. First Flash has a groundhog day he keeps repeating where he's trying to save Jessica from being killed. Turns out not to be the coming Doom. Next, millions o ...more

Probably my favorite of the JL Rebirth volumes so far. Shorter, punchy stories - Jessica Cruz, the endearing new Green Lantern takes a central role in 'A Thousand Little Things' (featuring a nice cameo by Lois Lane) and 'Fear Itself,' and receives some mentoring from Wonder Woman and Batman; Flash thinks he's trapped in his own deadly version of Groundhog Day in 'Endless;' Mera surfaces (pun intended) to cause trouble / give a cry for help in 'Fury' - comprise the majority of the book. Only the ...more

Some interesting material here. Hitch is still setting up for the big bad that's coming. There are also some shorter one shot stories that add some character development to the two Green Lanterns, as well as bringing Mera onto the team while Aquaman is occupied in his own comic. Although not strong, these one-shots are a nice break from the multi-issues stories we've seen recently.

The Rebirth Justice League series is a complete mess. This volume is the most jumbled one yet and is basically a collection of one-shots. Based on the nature of single stories, this volume may resonate with fans of the original Justice League TV show, though on a very low level as the writing is nowhere near that caliber. As usual, and as before with all volumes prior to this one, it ends with "something bigger is coming." This series is like an overlong ad to what I assume is building to whatev ...more

Justice League Vol. 4: Endless' from DC collects issues 20-25 of the series. Rather than a longer story arc, it's a bunch of shorter issues with different creative teams.

The title story Endless is a sort of Groundhog's Day type story with the Flash reliving an incident over and over again, while trying to stop the death of a team member. It's the best story in the collection. In the second story, the Watchtower gets quarantined when Lois Lane and Jon come for a visit with Superman. The third sto

Basic Plot: Something is coming to threaten Earth, and we don't know what it is yet.

This was largely a collection of shorter stories. We got to know some characters better, especially Jessica Cruz. We got to see the addition of Mera to the team, definitely a new choice. There is definitely a sense of impending doom that pervades the whole volume, making the reader wonder what the newest big bad is going to be..

Everything felt a bit disjointed and rushed, of course a bunch of different artists an

It is a collection of some nice and decent Justice League stories, but there is really nothing epic or noteworthy here that we've come to expect from these books.
Easily the best volume of Rebirth Justice League. Four different writers tell short stories here, with the majority of them focusing on Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz.

The DC universe has been reborn and The Justice League is back in action. Justice League Vol. 4 (Rebirth) collects issues 20 through 25 of Justice League and is written by Bryan Hitch. There are a few different storylines in this book but the main one focuses on The Flash. With the Justice League dead and Manhattan destroyed the Flash finds himself in a time loop repeating the events that lead to the destruction that he believes he caused. Eventually he gets help from Batman and they are able to ...more

A collection of one shots, all of which have individual problems. Aquaman is essentially absent, Batman given nothing to do, and Superman ignored; while the two worst Green Lanterns are featured issue after issue. Until the title goes back to group adventures rather than under-performing title promotion you might want to skip it.

Not memorable but okay. I generally do not read much about the Green Lanterns but I'm liking Jessica Cruz as a character.

After the awesome volume 3, this one was a bit more on the balanced side. Instead of a big over arching storyline, we get a few smaller ones.

Flash must save Jessica from being killed by a new villain. But he gets caught in a sort of Groundhog Day loop until he asks the league to help him out. The story wasn't that interesting but I like the Flash/Jessica shipping.

The second one was a storyline about the Green Lanterns again. While destroying an asteroid, miniscule bugs infiltate the league. and

This collection features several short tales. Seems a little like filler before something epic...
In "Endless", Flash is being forced to relive time (i.e. Groundhog Day) over and over, but a little bit earlier each time. There is a mystery unraveling that involves a zero-point energy device, alien tech, a JL battleground, Speed Force energy, and a nuclear explosion.
For "A Thousand Little Things", the Green Lantern mistakingly bring a contagion onto the Watchtower after doing some asteroid control

Meh... This starts out OK with the title two-parter, but that proves to be bluster and bombast over real narrative intelligence. Then we get a series of one-shots that are of the standard of those introductory specials that are designed to give us clues as to what to expect of someone we've never seen - except these are people we already know well. So we see Jessica and DOUBT, and a new baddy who - get this, it's so new - has to be told killing people to save lives is a bad thing. Aquawoman turn ...more

I thought this was a continuation of the previous volume, but nope. I guess the previous volume just sort of ended. Maybe I should go revise its score one star down.

This volume has a bunch of done-in-one stories by a bunch of fill-in writers and artists, and even though some of those writers are Dan Abnett and some of those artists are Ian Churchill, these stories still weren’t very good. I feel like most of Hitch’s Justice League has been a lead-up to that Watchmen crossover that nobody really

Back in the day, most comics were standalone issues, like short stories. Since arcs are now designed to be told over enough enough pages to be compiled into a trade, like novels, I think the art of telling a self-contained story in 22 pages is a bit of a lost art these days.

Instead of a single story arc spanning 5 or 6 issues like many current volumes, this book contains one two-parter and several standalone issues. In theory, it's nice to see a little variation in the story-telling model, but

This was a strange one. Hitch just isn't as strong with the stories here--the two issue first story begins so en media res it's hard to follow, and the rest are really solo stories in a team book, so focused on a particular character's perspectives without really touching much on the team dynamic that I found it disappointing. There are the obligatory foreshadowings of some great threat that every villain the League has faced in this run has mentioned, but this volume was not deep enough to feel ...more

It all starts with Flash. Looped events, more death, and a crazed individual blaming the Justice League. After that is worked out, the Green Lantern members manage to infect the LJ HQ with microscopic invaders. Then there is the tale of evil rogue vigilantes making their own war on terror. And the last tale involves the rebirth of an evil from the far past in Detroit of all places. But the creepy part is Batman's discussion with a prisoner about rebirth, history cycles, and opposing forces all c ...more

Two issues into Justice League Vol 4: Endless, I was ready to proclaim this the best volume of Hitch's run on Justice League, and it would have been, except that the book then becomes a series of fill-ins by other writers and artists, from which we get perfectly serviceable, but not outstanding stories. The fill-ins feel like they filler. If this book was only Hitch's issues, I'd give it 5 stars, but the rest of the book brings it down to only 3.

Though certainly not anything special, this volume did feel like a marked improvement over the previous volumes of the Rebirth Justice League title. The Endless story arc that this volume is named after was a half-decent story, one of those time-loop mysteries, though I was a bit unclear on why there was a time-loop involved. The rest of the volume focused a lot on the team's Green Lanterns, which is never my favorite but was still tolerable to read.

A somewhat unconnected set of stories, expect for a theme around one hero, which is trying to point to a big battle coming but isn't here yet.

I did like the Endless concept, which was really only an issue or two.

I also liked the Abnett Mera story which explains what the League did after Arthur fell as king of Atlantis.

Bunch of fill-in stories here.
Two deal with Jessica and her inadequacies of being a green lantern (get over it is the constant theme)
The one about Mera as well done though. Earned a star on it's own.

Collects Justice League (2016) issues #20-25

There are elements of some of the stories in this collection that I enjoy (for example time travel and Mera joining the Justice League), but the book is just so poorly written that it makes it hard to like this title.
