    A new story, and a new co-writer, Lemire, now with Fawkes as his co-writer have put together a brilliant opening chapter to the next part of this mysterious series that's called Justice League Dark, and it continues to be interesting, as well as exciting, and much more mysterious. I would highly recommend this issue as it was a very entertaining read, and I'd also recommend the series as a whole, as it's been very unique, and very dynamic. Read Full Review

    What more can possibly be said? This issue is everything that a comic book should. Every page, every panel, every bit of dialogue, even the fantastic cover art its all brilliantly executed. Needless to say, Justice League Dark is a series that everybody should be reading and this new story arc has kicked things off in a big way. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jan 5, 2013

    Justice League Dark #15 does an excellent job of setting up "The Death of Magic". Lemire is playing around with the idea of magic in the DC universe, something that's only ever been lightly done, due to the ingrained nature of continuity-based comic book mythology. As long as I can remember, magic has always been regarded as a more 'powerful' or 'enigmatic' force than science in comic books. With the 'New 52', all bets are off, so making magic and science more equivalent doesn't seem like such a far-fetched idea. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Jan 2, 2013

    Keen-eyed readers (or those with more years of comics under their belts than me) may recognize the names Wild Area and Epoch from pre-New 52 lore, but I think it would be a mistake to let even that background knowledge color one's expectations for this arc. This book is the manifestation of what made me so excited about the New 52 over a year ago " potential. The core of Justice League Dark #15 is solidly represented in its characters, and the context represents a thrilling new adventure for the imagination. Read Full Review

    As I try to look for a reason to cut this book from my pull list I just could never find any reason and that's a bad thing for me because I need to drop a few books. Damn you Lemire! Jeff Lemire continues to put out an awesome series issue after issue and now with Ray Fawkes lending a hand to Lemire hopefully things will get even better if that's even possible. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Jan 4, 2013

    The fact that this book has transformed from “worst named book of the New 52″ to the most enjoyable team book, by a long shot, that they are putting out says a lot about how Janin and Lemire have taken the book from the, surprisingly unsuited, hands of Peter Milligan, and turned it into something special. Fawkes seems like an addition that will pay dividends in the future, and with the cast having various loose allies in other books, the possibilities seem like they will keep coming and impressing as the months go on.

    Mikel Janin continues to impress on pencils this month as he gets to let his fantasy legs stretch in his illustrations of giants, faeries, goblins, and more. Janin's style seems to be able to properly and beautifully lend itself to many varying genres, which is great for a book such as this which explores such a wide array of settings and characters.

    Besides the noticeable boost to the art, Lemire-Fawkes deliver a fairly solid script that gives a new spin to an old plot. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Jan 2, 2013

    JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK continues to be a fantastic book that incorporates lesser known elements from the DC universe into a well-written, well-drawn book. While I am not the biggest fan that this book jumps from location to location a bit too quickly for me, I loved the issue and I can put up with that as long as JLD keeps being this good.Overall, I highly recommend this issue.

    Justice League Dark #15 is a pretty fun book, though, as it has complete license to get really, really weird out of nowhere. That's magic, folks. Read Full Review

    "Justice League Dark" #15 is the latest in a line of consistently enjoyable issues. The series doesn't knock my socks off, but it doesn't need to; it's fun and entertaining, which is exactly what the book should be. For a book that sounded particularly ridiculous when it was first announced, I feel like it's quietly turned into a book to look forward to each month. Read Full Review
