    A fantastic conclusion to an event that seemed to do everything right. If you like horror, magic, fantasy, over the top battles between god-like figures, or strong character and world building, I recommend this book to all of you. Read Full Review

    Tynion has raised the bar, and Justice League Dark may not be the flagship Justice League title, but it's the best we've had in a very long time. Read Full Review

    "The Witching Hour" ends at a point in which Justice League Dark is firing on all cylinders and quite frankly, I'm not sure how I'm going to manage to wait for the next issue of Justice League Dark to hit the shelves in a month. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Oct 31, 2018

    James Tynion IV's script is extraordinary humanizing. As The Witch Hour draws to a close, Tynion asks his readers who the true villain is, Hecate or a corrupt society seeking to tame rather than embrace? Blanco, Mendonca, and Merino enhance Tynion's script with intense artwork, depicting every second of this heart-pounding conclusion. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Oct 31, 2018

    The Witching Hour might be the ideal blueprint for how DC approaches small-contained mini-events going forward. Weekly releases with the same writer limited to two or three titles to make it easier to follow and digest. As an added bonus, the crossover has me anticipating what Tynion will follow up this event in Justice League Dark. Read Full Review

    Yes, this five part comic book clinic has closed its doors, but " as is the way with all great sequential art " every prologue is prelude. I urge every reader to pick up all five chapters of this terrific story, and Justice League Dark1-3. If you crave comics that entertain, scare, thrill and look fantastic, then your search is over.

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Nov 1, 2018

    Tynion IV competently balances the spectacular and the tragic in this unpredictable denouement. It's so dramatic that you can't help but wonder where he goes from here; we'll just have to wait and see" Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Andrew Bistak Nov 2, 2018

    Justice League Dark Wonder Woman Witching Hour #1 nicely concludes this story and although some parts felt slightly rushed, writer James Tynion IV nicely linked the story to the first arc and it was great seeing Dr Fate again, although I'm guessing his part in all this has just begun as with the Justice League Dark. The story has also resulted in some new players in the world of magic as artist Jesus Merino successfully brings it all together as the first blockbuster event of Justice League Dark finishes.

    Standing tall visually and setting up some interesting things for the DCU's spellcasters, Justice League Dark/Wonder Woman: The Witching Hour #1 is fun chaos. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Forrest Hollingsworth Oct 31, 2018

    The Witching Hour finale is imperfect but fascinating. It's a well drawn and tightly scripted affair that sets a lot of things in motion but also forgets to conclude all of the things that have happened in the past. What seems to be coming is scintillating, but a little more focus here could've gone a long way. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 31, 2018

    Everything comes to a reasonably satisfying close, though the nice visuals are obscured by an absolute deluge of copy. You might like the explanation behind the Witching Hour, you could appreciate its lasting ramifications. But man, you will have waded through a slog of prose to get there. Read Full Review

    In the end, I'm not sure that I was happy about reading this this week. It was a LOT of filler, didn't feel like a lot happened, and it seems like the consequences, save one, have lived their life and decayed. I'm not really pleased about Diana having seemingly expired some usefulness as a JLD cast-member with no continuing connection to the world of Magic. Not sure where we go from here, or if Wonder Woman has a place in this darker, more scary corner of the DCU Read Full Review
