    JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK continues to be one of my favorite DC books on the shelves, right now. This new story line is extremely promising and I love the reveal at the end. While Janin didn't do all the art himself of this book, the finishes of Vicente Cifuentes and the colors of Jeromy Cox were a great touch to the overall issue. Having Flash on the cover didn't really reflect what was going on in the overall issue, but this was the best gate fold cover so far, in terms of actually making sense with the story.

    It was interesting to see how Colonel Trevor tried to get Deadman to spy on the JLA Dark for him, and even telling Deadman that he could give him something he desires, he is still hesitant knowing what Constantine is capable of. Read Full Review

    This was the perfect start to a new story, which looks to be a brilliant short filler before Trinity War. With the addition of Swamp Thing I expect big things from this story, and with the extra addition of the Flash even more. This issue didn't have too much action, but it was still exciting, and mysterious, as well as very unique. I would highly recommend this issue, as well as the series since issue 9, as it's been one of the best series in the New 52. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - BradBabendir Apr 29, 2013

    Regardless, Justice League Dark has been one of the most consistent books for DC in the recent months, and Lemire’s work is laudable. #19 continues his inventive, colorful vision of what Justice League Dark should and can be, and it’s only getting stronger. Read Full Review

    "Justice League Dark" #19 is yet another solid issue in a very solid series. While the addition of Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Rod Reis makes a strong case for "Justice League" to ascend to a new level, "Justice League Dark" has remained consistently enjoyable and entertaining with Lemire, Fawkes and Janin guiding it.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Apr 25, 2013

    I was absolutely loving this comic during the "Books of Magic" arc when Jeff Lemire came abroad, but ever since the last arc and the co-writer came abroad, it hasn't been nearly as amazing. Everything's rather average from the dialogue, to the character bits, to the plotting. Not ever really bad, but nothing that ever really stands out besides some hints of the future war.

    Justice League Dark #19, while flawed, is still a welcome return to form for the series, which is almost the level of Lemire's awesome  debut on the title, #9. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Nuts - Jef Mendoza Apr 25, 2013

    I've lost my faith in Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes putting together a cohesive story. The opening of this new arc obviously begins with a hook – who was trying to kill John Constantine. Who is this Cult of the Cold Flame? The next act brings Swamp Thing into the mix. They use him to try to locate their missing House of Mystery and in the action of tracking it, the team gets separated where they must face their own trials. Now I thought this was a team book; however, there isn't much team work going on. They have no plan and no backup plan. The only thing saving this issue is that Boston Brand has the hots for Xanadu now. I'm guessing he's over Dove and she's over him. However, is Etrigan/Jason Bloog over her? Read Full Review
