    Overall, being apparently one of the few readers who eagerly anticipated the now defunct Shadowpact series monthly, I was happy to see some of my favorite characters in action again. Especially Ragman, Zauriel (did I mention hes one of the most underused DC characters with the greatest potential?) and Nightshade, although the budding relationship between Ragman and Nightshade that developed at the end of Shadowpact is apparently almost entirely dropped. It was also great to see Etrigan and Dr. Fate, two of DCs strongest mystical characters, in action again, both of whom, alas, have no current series of their own. Hopefully, DC has some more plans for these characters as there are potentially, in the right hands, a great deal of stories that can be wrangled from these magical (again, no pun intended) characters.

    All in all, this book helped streamline some of the players in the magical corners of the DCU while returning Lobo to the peak of bad-assedness. Astonishingly, I did little more than flip through half of the preceding issues, but I found myself able to comprehend the action, the players, and the end results with little head-scratching. While it may not be the prettiest book of the year, this book was important to the consistency of the DC Universe. It cleaned off the toys in the magic sandbox, sanitized them and put them back, ready for the next forager. I only hope that next storyteller adheres to some of the points set forth here and leaves his or her own agenda at home. Giffen's effort should be followed, not ignored. Read Full Review

    The bottom line is that Keith Giffen moved pieces around on a chess board, made an interesting tapestry, but at the end of the day never really got me to care about the chess pieces. Read Full Review
