Doctor Fate has assembled his Lords of Order, and it means certain destruction for the Justice League Dark! As Doctor Fate traps the magical community on Earth, the team fights against the Otherkind. The walls are closing in on them, and they'll need to find a way to stop Fate if there's any hope for magic's survival!

    Furthermore, its great that Tynion IV pays homage to his source material, particularly that of Doctor Fate with a great link to the Dark Multiverse. Add in the stellar art of Alvaro Martinez Beuno who successfully captures the world of DCU magic plus the characters with all their emotions perfectly, including the M.C Escher feel to the Tower of Fate and this was easily my favourite issue of Justice League Dark and I for one cannot wait to see how it all unfolds!

    James Tynion IV's Justice League Dark continues to be one of the best books in DC's stable, packing every issue with enough action and suspense for an event comic. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 13, 2019

    This was another strong edition of a comic that remains at the forefront of DC's most consistently entertaining titles. Tynion just needs to start showing some cracks with the villains to offer up some sense of hope that the team will be able to turn the tide. Read Full Review

    The art from Alvardo Martinez Bueno and Miguel Mendonca is stunning from start to finish. Everything is visually beautiful, especially the characters. Great looking issue. Read Full Review

    I'm genuinely worried. The writing and art in this series has me totally invested in the story. The characters are most human bunch of wraiths, demi-gods, magicians, elementals and human/animal hybrids in all of comics. Earth is in trouble, and Myrra is on the front line. Waiting thirty days for issue #10 is going to be torture. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Mar 13, 2019

    This is shaping up to be my favorite arc of Justice League Dark thus far. It's the natural continuation of various seeds planted earlier and the culmination is proving to epic, and I have to commend Tynion IV, Martnez Bueno, and Mendona for bringing such an ambitious tale to the page.

    Its difficult to discern whetherJustice League Darkis redefining magic within its pages or whether this creative team's transformative ideas are magically writing the comic for them. Read Full Review

    That's not necessarily a bad thing. I enjoy some mystery, but at a certain point, I want some immediate gratification. There are always a few weeks between issues, and with no major developments, it can feel as though the story is slogging along. Hopefully some payoffs will come in the near future, and we can get some awesome conclusions to this arc. Read Full Review

    The Lords of Order's Secret Origin is interesting and all, but we probably shouldn't have sacrificed story momentum to hear it. Or maybe we should; I don't know exactly what rites and sacrifices that are necessary to defeat the Otherkind. Read Full Review

    There's been a lot going on in Justice League Dark as of late, and while the story's start to tie up some loose ends, there's still a lot left to be desired. Read Full Review
