For thousands of years, Circe has plotted in the shadows, waiting for the moment she would ascend to become the true goddess of magic. Now, with the Justice League Dark crushed at her feet, and her Injustice League Dark reigning victorious, she is ready to take her throne. Is there anyone who can possibly stop her?

    In what's quickly becoming the norm for the series, the ending featured a terrific cliffhanger that looks to take the team down an even darker path before they emerge on the other side. Justice League Dark is a comic that tells heroic stories the right way. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Nov 27, 2019

    All in all, Justice League Dark #17 was a great issue for those of us who wanted a bit more depth from Circe. This by no way means that we need to sympathize with her, but it always goes a long way to understand what goes through her mind when she decides that this is what it means to have power and be in control.

    James Tynion's final arc on Justice League Dark, a horror-themed superhero book, isn't disappointing, as he pits the Justice League Dark against an army of the deadliest magical villains the universe has to offer. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 27, 2019

    This issue has some beautiful imagery from Javi Fernandez. Everything from the characters to the backgrounds is filled with awesome contrasting light and dark images and the final page is gorgeously disturbing. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Nov 27, 2019

    It's still a good read, but it's less demanding and feels like a little bit of a lull in a series that has generally been very engaging. Still, the magic/horror superhero story has built up to a final face that will be very entertaining if nothing else, but we'll have to wait one more month to see the pay off. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 3, 2019

    James Tynion IV and Javi Fernandez hit another home run withJustice League Dark #17. Tynion does a great job pacing the story of "The Witching War" out to maximize the impact of Circe and the Injustice League Dark's direct attack on the Justice League Dark. How it all turned out builds anticipation on what the status quo for both teams will be after all is said and done in "The Witching War." Read Full Review

    With a killer cliffhanger to boot, Justice League Dark is a quick return to form for the series after a few off issues. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Nov 29, 2019

    This issue has definitely been designed to serve as an intermission before the climax of the witching war storyline but it has good art, good writing and I have no complaints after reading it. It's a solid issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 27, 2019

    While I was having fun with this issue by the end, the first half of this book was a bit of a slog to get through as it just reiterated what we already knew, while completely glossing over Man-Bat's possession/transformation to get there.  Also, I wasn't a fan of the art this issue, which is a shame because usually if I'm not into the story I could always count on the art being top notch.  This is a mixed bag to be sure, but thankfully this did enough to keep me excited for next issue.
