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

    Justice League Dark continues to be a surprise and a delight with well-crafted interpersonal relationships and interesting (and surprising) plot developments. 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

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jun 10, 2020

    Justice League Dark is taking time to gel for me partially because of the crossover aspects that impacted earlier issues and the way this feels like such a short side arc, which is actually a positive in its favor. Tynion's still a writer I struggle with to get into the groove of his style but I like what he presents conceptually, so I'm able to enjoy it. A big part of the enjoyment is the cast of characters themselves and how well Sampere and Albarran bring them to life, which makes it easy to enjoy the book on that level as well. This issue sets up what's next which looks really interesting and I'm excited to see where it goes while hoping that it lands better for me than the previous run of issues. Read Full Review

    This is a great issue with a few unexpected twists. Will Mordru be enough to oppose Nabu, or will he suffer the same as the Stranger? 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

    Sequential Planet - Chris Terry Dec 19, 2018

    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
