Deep in the basement archives of the Hall of Justice, home to the most dangerous magic the Justice League has ever encountered, there is an artifact so powerful it could rip the world in half. Circe knows it's there, and with the Injustice League Dark at her side, nobody can stop her from obtaining it. The Witching War strikes close to home in its deadliest chapter yet!

    Justice League Dark #16 is fantastic. If you've come in late and this isn't a book you pick up, I cannot recommend it highly enough. Grab the collections and I'm sure you'll agree. This is truly an example of comics at their very best. Read Full Review

    I was a little thrown off with the Justice/Doom tie-in as Tynion is writing Justice League where Diana is off in the future while the green light in the sky appears. This should be a book that really plays into the Justice/Doom storyline so itll be interesting to see where Tynion goes with it. Read Full Review

    This is a really good book. If you're a horror fan in particular then this issue has some Resident Evil-style stuff that you'll love. There's a couple of characters that could've done with a drop more time and a new reader might still find it hard to get into despite the flashback but I really heavily recommend this issue and the series as a whole.

    Less a traditional superhero comic than a spookhouse horror show with superheroes, Justice League Dark #16 continues the series' tradition of being the most consistently excellent team book in DC's stable. Read Full Review

    With writing and artwork this stellar, Justice League Dark #16 continues to be a fantastic run of the world of magic. It's a complete reading experience that encompasses such a staggeringly grand scale and is just incredibly enchanting in all the best ways possible. The monsters are beginning to take shape, and it just makes me excited to see what Tynion IV has in store for the cast. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 23, 2019

    They didn't lie, this is one of the deadliest chapters yet for the Justice League Dark. This is one of those stories where it does not pay to be a step behind, and boy did this team learn the hard way what happens when this is the case. If you didn't think the Injustice League Dark wasn't going to be much of a challenge, this chapter said otherwise! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 23, 2019

    Lushly illustrated pages and the subtle raising of stakes areobliterated by a dense story full of contrivances and conveniences. Maybe thething that's supposed to happen will happen in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Throughout Tynion's run on Justice League Dark, there's been peaks and valleys on pacing"in fact, inconsistency might be the most consistent thing about it. That said, this issue might end up being the slowest, most inconsequential issue of this entire run. Read Full Review
