    I'm ticked I have to wait 30 days for the next chapter! In honor of Frankenstein, I'll quote a famous doctor who sums up how I feel about waiting, “Oh, the pain. The pain.” Read Full Review

    This was a very good issue, but like the last issue it wasn't as good as the Book of Magic story, and it was a bit slow at times. Besides that it was still a very unique and interesting issue, and Lemire and Fawkes have done a brilliant job. I'd still highly recommend both this issue as well as the series, and hope that next issues conclusion is as good as expect. Read Full Review

    Justice League Dark #17 doesnt deliver the goods, but it definitely leaves fans hopeful for a stunning and satisfying end to the story. These characters are still well written and too interesting for this series to not get back on track. Lets not give Lemire and Fawkes too much guff this series is still one of the best DC titles.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 1, 2013

    The biggest drawback to "Justice League Dark" #17 is the fact that "The Death of Magic" is such an epic story with such astonishing revelations and implied ramifications that twenty pages doesn't do it justice. Like the skinniest sliver of cheesecake, what is served up here is enough to tease the palette and elicit the inquiry "Is there any more?" That is compounded by this comic book being the turning point in the story where everything starts to happen, conclusions begin to materialize, but nothing reaches finality. If you haven't been reading "Justice League Dark" before now, this is not the issue to start with, but this storyline will certainly make one fantastic collection to be sought out once it becomes available. I cannot recommend this ragtag collection of characters from this stunning team of creators enough. Read Full Review

    This is a fringe book. The “Justice League” in the title doesn't seem to be generating that much buzz, but it's quite well written and absolutely gorgeous to behold. It's definitely worth checking out, if you aren't already. Read Full Review

    After having so much fun with this title for so long, I'm afraid it's starting to lose steam. I don't want to be an alarmist, though, so I'll just limit my evaluation to this issue: modest character development and incremental plot progression define a mildly disappointing issue.

    As much as you want to like this title, it really hasn't done anything to earn your favor for a long time, and it looks like it may bode ill for other projects, too. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Mar 16, 2013

    It doesn't do a good job of describing the new world that the characters are forced into. There is a lot of plot going on but not enough that a reader can relate to. One word comes to mind when thinking about the story: confusion. Read Full Review

    This title progresses a bit slow for me. Maybe if the characters came along faster i would be more pleased. Still, this arc and issue in particular has enough to keep me going. I enjoyed the last arc and was going to skip this, but im glad i stayed on. Even if its a bit of a side-track till we get back to the House of Mystery.
