    For as up and down this series has been, Justice League Dark #18 might be the best issue in the run in a long while. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jan 18, 2020

    So far, this story arc has been a lot of buildup. It's that climb up the first big hill of a roller coaster. By the end of this issue, we've reached the top and we're just about to go careening down with equal parts excitement and dread. Characters are about to make some tough decisions that could change a great deal not only for them, but for the DC Universe as a whole. I think we can all agree that's some pretty cool stuff.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jan 6, 2020

    Justice League Dark #18 was a solid continuation of "The Witching War." Things slow down in this issue as a lot of characters from Wonder Woman to Zatanna to Circe make choices that will affect the future of this series. In going with this direction for Justice League Dark #18 James Tynion and Alvaro Martinez Bueno build greater anticipation for how "The Witching War" will conclude. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 1, 2020

    There's not a ton of progression this issue, but we did have some elements that will lead to some very interesting developments in issues to come and for the most part I enjoyed everything we got here.  The art was great and the tension is high as our heroes decide that there's little recourse than to take a terrible option to defend themselves and I can't wait to see how it turns out as our story continues.

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Jan 6, 2020

    This is a really forgettable issue that manages to take some great ideas and make them seem irrelevant through lack of attention. It's worth reading if you've been enjoying the series so far and want to read the whole thing but otherwise don't bother. The art is the best thing about this issue. Read Full Review
