    Now that Shade is seemingly gone and the crossover is at an end for this side of the story, I'm as curious as ever to see where JLD will go next! Read Full Review

    The one aspect of the script I didn't enjoy this month was the sudden, unexpected departure of a team member. It felt abrupt and poorly timed, as though Milligan were following an editorial mandate rather than delivering what the story needed. Hopefully Jeff Lemire can smooth things over with the cast changes and not lose the momentum Milligan has built up over the past eight months. Read Full Review

    The crossover leaves both books in more interesting places than they were a few months ago, and with renewed senses of purpose. "I, Vampire" has been the better book thus far, and so its issues within 'Rise of the Vampires' worked better, but "JLD" has kept a steady, if unspectacular, course since the beginning to, and its first arc wrapped up in a relatively satisfying way. I will still be buying both books next month, and I encourage you to as well. Read Full Review

    I really want this book to be better, but it is just not there. This crossover has not made me interested in reading I, Vampire. It has just made me annoyed with a series I greatly appreciated. Even so, if you like the characters and have an interest in their ongoing struggles to form a team, then this book is at least trying to do that. Also, Batman is still here to stand around by himself and not say or do anything. Batgirl is missing this time, though. I guess there wasn't room for absolutely every pointless cameo this time.

    Next month Jeff Lemire will be taking over writing tasks for this title, and I sincerely hope he can find a way to make "Justice League Dark" work. The character line up is an embarrassment of riches, but those characters come with a lot of power and thus they need a very careful hand. These first eight issues never managed it, despite some bright spots, but I look forward to seeing another writer try. Read Full Review
