"Despite some often-beautiful artwork by Mauro Cascioli, the series, written by James Robinson, was almost universally derided. [...] Such vitriol! If Cry for Justice was on Facebook, it would be de-friended, yet here it is on the hardcover list. Is its best-selling status the equivalent of gawking at a traffic accident, or are comic-book fans complaining even as they vote the opposite way with their dollars?"
-- New York Times writer George Gene Gustines, on the debut of the Justice League: Cry for Justice hardcover
at No. 6 on the newspaper's graphic novel bestseller list
