The Justice League Dark...trapped in the mystic realm of Myrra! Their jailer? Blue Devil...and he wants revenge on Detective Chimp! Seems Bobo tried to magically resurrect his best friend, the original Nightmaster, but lost control of the spell and filled Myrra with zombies instead. And left Blue Devil behind to get eaten. So BD's kinda sorta maybe got a reason  to be pissed. With that in mind, will Wonder Woman and the rest of the JLD even step up to help Bobo against a raging Blue Devil? That sounds bananas to us.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 12, 2018

    Tynion also doesn't drag storylines out and it's good to see subplots wrapped up over two issues. Justice League Dark has too much excitement to stall out on any one subplot. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 12, 2018

    Every issue packs enough action in it for a full arc, but somehow it doesn't overwhelm just how good Tynion is at the quiet moments. His Detective Comics was fantastic, but this fuses the best of that run with the best of Tynion's weirder works. It's arguably the best ongoing in DC's stable at the moment. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Holden Jan 16, 2019

    Concluding the short arcs interdimensional dalliances, Justice League Dark #6 fires on all cylinders, providing meaningful character development and significant overarching plot progression, while wrapping up the tangentially relevant present plot line in time to propel the protagonists head-first into the next adventure.

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Dec 29, 2018

    This is such a well crafted book. The characters are interesting and distinctive, and the book has done an impressive job of balancing the cast and the wide selection of guest stars so far. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 12, 2018

    Sampere's art is well done and detailed. There are several great moments in the story, but the standouts are the fight between Constantine, Swamp Thing, Doctor Fate and Phantom Stranger. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 12, 2018

    A high-quality, gripping comic book that is as emotional as it is bombastic. Perhaps this will not be to your liking if you aren't predisposed to these characters. But if you don't like the characters in this series, then you're probably a horrible person. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 12, 2018

    Justice League Dark #6 was indeed bananas for the lengths that the JLD went in order to save Bobo from his fate, and for the urgency that had now kicked into overdrive after the confrontation between Doctor Fate and the Phantom Stranger. If it wasn't feeling like a war for the fate of magic in the issue before, the impression is set now. Read Full Review

    Though this issue wasn't as zany as issues past, it still keeps the faith up that magic will be the biggest piece of this puzzle as it continues into its second arc. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Ari Bard Dec 13, 2018

    Justice League Dark continues to present itself as a beautiful, well-thought out exploration of the magical DC Universe, this time with a lot more characterization and heart along with it. Each issue has something new and always leaves me wanting more. Read Full Review

    The side of good continues taking casualties, as the forces of darkness grow ever more powerful. For six months now the League has fought back, gaining some small, but important victories. The question now is, how much longer can they carry on? Read Full Review

    Epicstream - Brian McCormick Dec 18, 2018

    Justice Dark #6 is a well drawn, colored, and written book, but spends too little time showing the awesomeness of spectacular battles and too much on exposition detailing planning and small talk between characters. Read Full Review

    While we keep drifting off course from the main quest, Justice League Dark is still interesting. The new art team is decent, but I need to see some changes soon in the direction. Read Full Review

    THE GOOD:

    -I did like the chaos going on in Myrra however. That was well-done and it showed us just how disastrous things have become there.

    -Detective Chimp was a pretty great character. He has become the most well written member of the team, though I think Kirk is still the most enjoyable.

    -I actually liked the reveal of how Chimp made Myrra so chaotic. Not something like he was evil, but simply because he wanted to save a friend. Some of his motivation was a little iffy still, but I won't take off for that.

    -I especially liked it when Chimp got his redemption.

    -The Doctor Fate/Constantine/Swamp Thing scenes were pretty good. They were a lot of setup and started to feel like a dis more

    This gets better every month. Its insane! The art have been consistently amazing. But the script is the pure gold for me. What James Tynion is doing with Bobo is, for me, like what Geoff Johns does with "forgotten" characters. Hes an amazing character in this series. Theres a page where he does a monologue that made me stop and read it again like three times because it was so good!
    This is a very VERY good book. Totally recommend it.

    This series continues to impress issue after issue. With the exception of a couple of issues in the witching hour event, the stakes continue to get higher and they continue to be realised, which doesn't seem an easy task when the entire magical universe is continually on the line.

    The characterisation is always spot on for the core members but also for the regular guests. On that same note, its refreshing to see the return of so many legacy heroes that seem to have been forgotten throughout the years. If only Rebirth had started with Justice League Dark, I definitely think we wouldn't be having this slack now.

    This issue was really good. I liked the emotional aspect of Bobo's story, but not so much the story itself. I don't care about Blue Devil or Myrra, though. The stuff with Doctor Fate and Phantom Stranger was really cool and I'm really excited to see where that goes.

    Took a while but finally enjoying this comic! Great artwork and good dialogue. The cliffhanger doesn’t do anything for me unfortunately. The part of the issue with Bobo is thoroughly enjoyable. This issue is good at showing what each character’s strength at. Not perfect but better than what we have been getting.

    "I need more mead"

    Bobo is easily becoming the emotional center of this team. Turns out that under the facade of wit and snarkiness resides a broken "man", who is heartbroken after his friend's death. That conversation he had with Diana was sad and a bit depressing. Kudos to James Tynion for good writing.

    The rest of the issue sets up for the upcoming war for magic's survival and shows that it is high time for someone to kick Nabu's butt.

    Good issue.
