    This story arc, with its conclusion has shown just why they are the mystic Justice League. Flash's appearance in this story really sold how they work as a team because like he said they work together so well that you actually feel as though you are a part of a team. That's something that really stands out and you hope that with the next stories leading into the Trinity Wars will show this again. As usual the art style has been the most spectacular part of this book. Many vibrant colors, solid, detailed and just about everything really pops out. The effects look real and the fights look that much more appealing to the eyes. Read Full Review

    And naturally, there are no complaints to be had regarding Mikel Janin's work. This issue might just rank as his best of the entire series, between the aforementioned Swamp Thing scene and various other shots of supernatural carnage. But the best pages are those right at the beginning, as Janin depicts a horrific flash-forward sequence both terrible and beautiful in scope. Even the fact that Vicente Cifuentes provides finishes over Janin's layouts in the latter half of the issue does nothing to diminish the overall impact of the visuals. I honestly had no idea the shift even occurred until finishing the comic and examining the cover again. Read Full Review

    Despite the apparent odd coupling of the Flash with this crew, Barry Allen fits right in and looks marvelous under the pencil of Mikel Janin. Lemire and Fawkes definitely have a grasp on the character's own misgivings and motivation and make a strong case for serious consideration to be given to make the Scarlet Speedster a permanent addition to this team. "Justice League Dark" #21 sets Flash and Frankenstein side by side in battle again, which is the type of pairing and team-up comics should be providing readers more often. It's a fun pairing, but it is even more poignant as Frankenstein and Flash both have their New 52 origins firmly melded to "Flashpoint." After all, since "Flashpoint," this has consistently been the best title of the relaunch. Hopefully the high standards of quality will persevere throughout this title's involvement in "Trinity War."

    Once again, JLD does not disappoint. There was plenty of action and story. Questions were answered, and yet new ones were raised. (Xanadu and Deadman? Really?) The team is now in a precarious position going forward. Also, it didn't hurt that this issue was titled after a great Misfits song! Next stop…TRINITY WAR! Read Full Review

    Overall, we get a story that was a lot of fun with an interesting situation at the end. I like how this is kind of on its own from the other Lantern titles and bring a comedic vibe with it. I am a little in different with the art. Some pages it looks excellent and other times in smaller frames I don't like how Larfleeze looks. I am excited for more. Read Full Review

    . . $3, 20pgs. B+ cover. Too many ADs! . . . Final issue before i break off due to Trinity War, ugh. Still this issue is a good wrap up to the arc, which focuses and informs Madame Xanadu with some Deadman on the side. Janin, Cifuentes and Cox do some of their best art and color work on the series, thus far. The Hose of Mystery is in play and the action is fierce while other scenes are just intense. A very nice job by Fawkes and Lemire, in dialog character and plot.
