    I'm not sure there's ever been a book that's made me gasp as much as this run of Justice League Dark. Read Full Review

    There's another huge cliffhanger this issue that promises a wild follow-up next month. This book has been better than advertised and keeps finding new ways to top itself each installment. Read Full Review

    The art by Alvaro Martinez Bueno is beautiful, dark and detailed. It conveys so much emotion and darkness. It perfectly matches the tone of this story. Read Full Review

    This is, by far, the best magic team book that DC has released. And I was a big fan of Shadowpact, so thats saying something. Read Full Review

    I don't know what actually scares me more; Nabu and his kin, or the Otherkind. Suffice it to say that this series always delivers, in terms of character, dialogue and art. This comic is always one of my first reads and a series that I will treasure for years to come. Anyone who's after a new comics experience, who wants more than just superheroes; you could do a lot worse than pick up Justice League Dark. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 13, 2019

    One of the best things about James Tynion IV's work on Justice League Dark is that he's been building a giant meta-arc out of his DC work for years now, and it's all converging in this fantastic horror extravaganza. Read Full Review

    Justice League Dark #8 makes use of all of its previous momentum in order to kick the next arc in high gear. The promise of Otherkind confrontations and the intervention of the Lord of Orders is gonna be fun. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Gwen Dylan Stacy Feb 14, 2019

    I think the part that stands out the most for me in this writing is the fact that Tynion so expertly explains to us how magic and science walk parallel lines; that pieces of one resound largely in the other. The balance is integral, especially when realizing that two of the team are more science/logical minded beings. I think that ultimately, this major component is going to become imperative to where the story leads. Especially when considering the need for desire to will things into fruition. Ultimately, we're left waiting to see what order is brought to the team and what this means for Magic itself. I give this issue a 4.5/5 for, not only the beautiful art inside, but the expert blend of magic and science. Do you agree? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Feb 13, 2019

    That's not to say there isn't plenty to sink your teeth into in this issue. This book has one of the most beautifully painted pages I've seen in a comic in a long time. You'll know it when you see it, but it's the one where all the panels are assembled into an urn. It adds so much to the story as we see Man-Bat complete his incantation while bar patrons get torn to shreds by the Otherkind. Read Full Review

    It may not have been till the very end of the issue that we actually see these Lords of Order, but this week's issue of Justice League Dark served as an exciting build-up to that introduction. With every passing scene you could feel this story revving up towards a big revelation, and the execution was successful because of everything that has made this situation more dire than it could ever be.

    Now that folks are aware of the Otherkind, they're getting scared. And you know what? They should be. Looks like the Big Bad of this story might not be what we thought it was, and an old friend from the DCYou returns to tell everyone how badly they've screwed up. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Indiana “Indy” Marlow Feb 16, 2019

    This is still an enjoyable romp. Some might say it's becoming a little too much of a constant kick in the teeth, but it still makes me want to read every new page just to see how deep these characters are able to go. Read Full Review
