    And more importantly, I can't wait to see who lives, dies, and inevitably joins the new-new Justice League Dark. It would be great to see all of these "dark" titles combined into one mega and ultra-dependable book each and every month. I know that this is an unrealistic (and not to mention not very good a business) plan, but it would be a nice reward to all of us who have stayed true and loyal these last almost three years. I'm not saying that the books should be cancelled because they're bad. I'm just saying that this event has given DC a great opportunity to combine in a sort of "greatest hits" type of way. Five or more mediocre-to-good titles pale in comparison to one (or maybe even two) awesome ones. Justice League Dark should be the one. And maybe backup features from the rest, if they really want to keep that 3.99 price tag. Read Full Review

    All in all if you decided to skip a few issues and come back one the story arc is over I highly suggest you don't for this series. Whatever happens in Phantom Stranger's series at least comes back in ways you least suspect. It's still a fun read even though you'll probably have to get the other issues to get the full story.

    Newsarama - Rob McMonigal Feb 6, 2014

    No stranger to crossovers, writer J.M. DeMatteis deftly uses the Forever Evil storyline to continue his overall theme of the Phantom Stranger's struggle for free will and the place of evil in the world, as he potentially defies God by working to save Zatanna and the others. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 11, 2014

    This issue doesn't do much to continue the Forever Evil: Blight story line, and takes half the issue resolving a situation that only presents itself in the beginning of the issue.  It seemed silly, and only there for filler to maintain the length of this event.  But I still am enjoying this event, and intend to follow it to the end, and would expect everyone else out there to do the same.  Even with my gripes this is a fun issue, and continues to show that this JLD team is the best, and I'm really afraid that after this event, we won't see them together again.  So write to you local congress person, and make sure you let them know you want this team to stay together.
