    I'm not sure if it was the occasionally inconsistent artwork or the fact that the story is starting to sort of repeat itself, but this one was not as great as it could have been. Don't get me wrong. It's still an excellent comic in almost all ways. The pictures portray a well-crafted script that is, even though filled to the brim with magic, very human. Constantine's never been more interesting in the New 52 than he is in the pages of Forever Evil: Blight. And the fact that he's finally reunited with Zatanna is just too good to not enjoy. But the true strength of this break-off of the main Forever Evil event is the recent spotlight on the villainy of Felix Faust, one of the greatest villains of the DC Universe. I can't wait to see him kill and/or maim more of this team. And, inevitably, get his butt handed to him by the forces of good before all is said and done. Read Full Review

    Forever Evil is near the end and things aren't really looking up for the JLD here, especially with a cameo from a certain spirit of redemption rearing his green-cowled head soon. DC has a long tradition of supernatural and arcane characters and it's great to know they have a title that is all of their own, especially for fans like myself, but the artistic direction here isn't all that magical.

    Infinite Comix - Max Dweck Mar 1, 2014

    This is a difficult issue to peg down, because while a lot of things are going on, not very much actually happens. It's certainly not one of the stronger issues of "Forever Evil: Blight", but like some of the earliest issues of the crossover, is planting a lot of seeds for future developments. The plot doesn't actually move, but unlike the recent issues of Constantine and Pandora where the story feels stagnant, this is more of a pit stop, getting readers ready for what's about to come next. And hey, it's all interesting while it's being read, so that's good. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 3, 2014

    Forever Evil: Blight keeps rolling along, we have our ups and downs in this event, and we get both in this issue.  While there were a couple things that made you think WTF, we also had a lull in discussing the three-way between Zatanna, Constantine, and Nick Necro.  But this is a completely competent issue.  It moves the story along, and keeps you interested.  Towards the end of the issue there's a really cool use of the panels, that looks great.  Overall the book's just lacking a wow factor I look forward to in reading these Dark books.  Maybe I'm just getting tired of the nonstop Blight each week, I don't know, but that's probably it.  But get the issue, and continue your Blight saga.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 26, 2014

    Another blow comes in the form of Mikel Janin's departure. Though he was only recently announced to be leaving the series, apparently his departure was retroactive. Instead, Vicente Cifuentes tackles the art, with Dan Jurgens providing some breakdowns. The art is competent, but lacks Janin's impeccable detail and fluidity. The art is too bland and lifeless considering the subject matter and the various supernatural forces at play in this conflict. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Feb 27, 2014

    I cannot recommend Justice League Dark this month. The art is rushed and the story is very thin. There are some character insights gained into the emotional traumas that drive one of the main villain's, but little else. When Constantine finally pours out his heart and soul to Zatanna he comes across like a suburban husband who works for an office supplies company, and she reacts like he's telling her he's just about to mow the lawn before picking the kids up from school. Not exactly thrilling, JLD is a magical hop, step and jump away from being an essential purchase this month. Read Full Review
