What dreams may come-we should be so lucky! Instead, the nightmares are here!  Zatanna and John Constantine take a dive into the mind of Abigail Arcane to save  her from the all-consuming Rot, while Animal Man must reach deep within himself to save Detective Chimp and Wonder Woman from the hordes of infected rot monsters. Minds, worlds, and lives hang in the (im)balance!

    This is a great issue. I think the script effectively flows and nicely parallels the different events. I really like this story with its focus on ecosystems and the life within. The art looks good and I think it's an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jun 3, 2020

    At the end of the day, Justice League Dark is not the book you should sleep on right now. Just when you thought this book couldn't captivate you more than everything you have seen so far, issue #22 reminds you of the limitless potential in a book like this. While other books are quick to jump to the next thing, Justice League Dark remains one of the most consistent books which DC has to offer. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 6, 2020

    One of the impressive things about this arc is that the creative team has managed to split up the team to several different dimensions, but they've managed to give everyone an equal role and a major stake in the story. It's the kind of book that feels like an event comic even as it's confined to one title, and that's a big compliment. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 3, 2020

    Alvaro Martinez Bueno and Amancay Nahuelpan deliver some intense and dark atmosphere in the visuals. There is a creepy, muted quality to the art that works in a story that is both intense and serious. Read Full Review

    Picking up the tension exactly where it left off in the last book, Justice League Dark #22 is a 20-page panic attack that forces you to wait for the other shoe to drop. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 7, 2020

    Justice League Dark is swinging for the rafters here, bringing in some major new concepts that can have big ramifications for the DC Universe at large. It's funny to think that the likes of Superman and the Flash are dealing with villains in brightly colored costumes, but none of that will matter if the forces of life itself revolt against them all. When you have to fight the very idea of Death, you know it's a big deal. Read Full Review

    Some people say that grown ups shouldn't read comics, but I reckon the world be a much better place if everyone did. I'd start by handing them all a copy of Justice League Dark #22. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Jun 30, 2020

    This is a decent issue. The art is gorgeous, especially in the dream world segments and the inventive use of lettering alongside that really really just adds even more brilliance to those pages. There isn't a great deal of character work though. Dr Fate, Constantine and Abigail Arcane are the only characters that really get much attention in this issue. What we see of them is interesting, especially Fate as he debates the avatars but it's not mind-blowing or anything. The story itself isn't great either but it does its job of setting up the next issue so it's serviceable. A decent issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Carlos R. Jun 2, 2020

    It was well worth the wait to finally have the chance to read this issue. The arc, and series, continues to be a visual and narrative treat. The issue draws to a close on a high note and I am stoked to see how “The Parliaments of Life” will conclude. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 3, 2020

    A good issue that may bounce around a bit too much, but hammers home incredible moments some of which could have been climaxes to entire story arcs. Justice League Dark continues to deliver in the most unnervingly delightful ways.  Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Jun 5, 2020

    "Justice League Dark" #22 escapes the tropes of the middle story of a longer arc, by focusing on its key concepts and rich characters. The combination of art styles and moments make it a rich tapestry for magic within a superhero fantasy. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 2, 2020

    By the end of this issue, I was really intrigued by what we'll get next, but the majority of what we got here just seemed like it needed to wrap things up really quick and felt out of place with what we've seen of the different Parliaments before.  The art was decent, but by the end of this issue I just felt like this story should have been bigger than what we got, but I hope that things come together for the end and give the story the scope that it should have in how it affects the entire DC Universe.  Read Full Review
