    I loved this issue. It's a wonderful exploration of the characters and the nature of being a leader. The script weaves together the various characters in nicely by using an unusual but effective point of view. I love the art. And it's an intense start to a cool story. Read Full Review

    Ram V already teases in the first few pages that this won't end well for the team and this issue marked a nice reflection period before everything falls in to chaos. Justice League Dark readers shouldn't expect anything less. Read Full Review

    Ram V's arc is just getting started, but all evidence is that he's going to deliver a strong follow-up to Tynion's epic run. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Jul 22, 2020

    Justice League Dark #24 utilizes the emotional underpinnings of the team's dynamics as they attempt to gather their forces, but it loses some of the narrative momentum in the process. Still, with consistently spectacular artwork it proves worth the read. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Jul 27, 2020

    This issue was just stunning. The way the story is handled with Zatanna trying to bring back her father and Detective Chimp trying to reunite the league is just great. You get a good sense of what's going on in terms of storyline and personality with virtually every character in the cast. Each member of the team is written so well here. The artwork is breathtaking with so many incredible aspects to it. I listed some in the main review but you really need to see it yourself to appreciate what Amancay has done here. The lettering is well-done too. There's so many nice little techniques that just add extra layers to an already great comic. I was extremely impressed by this and I can't wait for the next issue.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 21, 2020

    Amancay Nahuelpan does some great work with the art. There are some beautiful panels throughout and each character is given the same level of detail and care in their individual moments. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 21, 2020

    Justice League Dark #24 is a good issue setting up many moving parts as each character has an important story to tell. Ram V even gives Bobo an important task by the end of the issue, and one could surmise we're in for a story that reveals these characters are stronger together. If you ask me, that's the best kind of superhero team storytelling. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 22, 2020

    Justice League Dark #24 marks the start of something new for this team. With time after time being the target of forces which wanted to step on their mission to preserve the balance of magic, it is about time that this team found the strength to take the fight to their greatest enemy. Though only time will tell what it is actually going to take to overcome the kind of power they are dealing with. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jul 22, 2020

    Still, the level of craftsmanship that V and Nahuelpan bring to Justice League Dark is pretty impressive, especially when working with a scattered cast of characters that (on paper) would be a tough fit to make work as a cohesive unit. But V is able to really channel the magic and malevolence that makes Justice League Dark feel like its own separate corner of the DC Universe, apart from the various sci-fi oriented super-teams. With stellar artwork, deft characterization, and a true flourish for dialogue, this is one of DC's best books this week. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Jul 21, 2020

    While Zatanna's actions are cause for concern, and the scene on pages 2 and 3 has left me extremely anxious, there's one thing I'm sure of after reading Justice League Dark #24. The future of this series, which features some of my favorite characters, looks like it's in very safe hands. Read Full Review

    Like Tynion before, Ram V has done an excellent job building the intra-team conflict and reducing them to the smallest of their own selves, providing a chance for reflection that, in turn, makes for a killer team-up tale. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 21, 2020

    While I dig the art here and the idea that we will finally be moving forward with the Upside Down Man in the next issue, we kind of sacrifice this one by standing around and doing nothing until the end, while the rest of the JLD are off doing interesting things.  Hopefully, going forward things start picking up when dealing with the big bad of this series or we start focusing on Swamp Thing because these aspects desperately need addressing.
