    Infinite Comix - Max Dweck Apr 24, 2014

    Justice League Dark #30 is the best issue of the series yet. It serves as a transitional issue, letting the reader and characters recover from the events of "Forever Evil: Blight" and move on to a new era for the series. J.M. DeMatteis is finally being allowed to play with the characters at his own pace, no longer having to worry about crossovers, and this is a very promising start for what might just become the best run of the entire New 52.

    Overall, in the wake of Forever Evil: Blight, it looks like Justice League Dark is still going strong and I'm all for that. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 28, 2014

    Now I'm not going to pull any punches here.  I'm going to tell you without any restraint that this is one of the best issues of Justice League Dark I've ever read.  Oh god it was so good.  Not only are all these characters completely realized by DeMatteis, but they seem real, and you believe everything they tell you.  Even with all the fluffing I'm doing to DeMatteis, that's nothing compared to my man crush on Andres Guinaldo after reading this issue, and I sincerely hope that he continues on JLD in the future.  Now I've seen his work plenty of times in the past, but for some reason his style for the Dark characters fits perfectly, and these two creators joined together to make the Voltron of creative teams.  If you miss this issue, then I feel sorry for you, because it's so damn good.

    Unsure of what to expect from this book, I was ready to be disappointed by the shift in the creative team. That didn't happen and I couldn't be happier. DeMatteis and Guinaldo produced a book that reignited my excitement for the series. With Forever Evil in the past, I'm probably not the only one anxiously awaiting next month. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Pritchard Apr 25, 2014

    Justice League Dark #30 is a book written with respect to its long-term readers, and that's all I want from my comic books. The party is over, but there are consequences to what has happened during that wild drunken night. Those consequences are explored here, and the next stage of story development is almost an add-on at the end of the issue, something that is needed to keep the narrative moving along. I really appreciate that approach, rather than immediately moving onto a new direction without stopping to pause and think about what has just happened, and what effect it's going to have on the individuals involved. I enjoyed this issue and have confidence that writer J.M DeMatteis has the creative ability and respect for his readership to continue making Justice League Dark a must read book that I always look forward to reading each and every month.

    But between that haphazard approach and a steady stream of awkward dialogue where characters speak and narrate exactly how they're feeling, this issue proves almost as disappointing as the last. Read Full Review

    This is the beginning of a new JLD as the roster gets shaken up; the members of the new team havenĀ“t worked together and have different reasons for being here, which will make for some great developments, interactions, relationships and stories in the future
