Their battle against Doctor Fate may have come to an end, but the Justice League Dark's problems are just beginning when the helmet begins its search for a new host. Meanwhile, what can Lex Luthor offer a magic user like Circe? For one thing, Lex knows a thing or two about monsters. And where Circe can find them.

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Jul 24, 2019

    I loved this issue, but you may have guessed that already. It delivers everything I could ever want in a comic, including yet another tribute/homage to Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run (still the greatest ever DC horror comic, IMHO, and grandaddy to everything that Followed it). It succeeds as a standalone comic, as part of the ongoing series AND as a crossover. Very few comics manage this, and even fewer do it as successfully as this one. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 24, 2019

    The aftermath of the Chaos-Order War brings a lot of questions now that the Justice League Dark has literally broken magic, and Justice League Dark #13, a breather issue,tackles the biggest question " what to do with Doctor Fate and his near-unimaginable power? Nabu is now locked inside the helmet, waiting for a suitable bearer to harness his power for good. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 24, 2019

    Buckingham and Sampere have some beautiful art in this issue. I really enjoyed Buckingham's classic style when highlighting Kent Nelson's story. His character designs were great and featured some awesome character designs. Sampere also delivered some gorgeously detailed character designs and the tone of the art served the dark nature of the story. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Aug 1, 2019

    Justice League Dark has moved from one epic storyline to the next. This issue gives us a moment to catch our breath before diving into the Year of the Villain, which is shaping up to hit this team pretty hard. They've already been through some tough trials and tribulations, so I can only imagine what's in store for us next. This is what we get when we explore the darker side of the DC Universe.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 24, 2019

    Justice League Dark #13 served as more of an informative issue following the battle of chaos versus order. This may have been a slower issue, but not one scene was wasted setting this story up for what comes next between the fight for the fate of magic, and what doom now has to offer the world of magic.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 24, 2019

    If you wanted some backstory to Kent Nelson and Constantine than this issue is for you because it really does little to push the story forward and decides instead to give you a history lesson.  At least there was an interesting offer from Lex Luthor because besides for some decent moments between characters and some great art, there's not much to this issue of Justice League Dark.
