    The scenes of graphic violence are quite graphic, but Sook makes the violence hit home with the shocked expression on Mistys face. And I love how, in the presence of Neh-bu-loh, as Zatanna comments about the charged air, that the womens hair starts rising in a snaky dance of its own volition. As bad as Neh-bu-loh is, though, the Faerie Queen sounds worse. Poor Misty. Read Full Review

    Ryan Sook is certainly making a strong case for being the regular artist of a Zatanna monthly series that is sure spin out of this miniseries (fingers crossed). He displays a very solid understanding of the showmanship aspect of the character. I will concede the Power Girl style viewing window was a bit much, but it's an excess that fits the character's personality, and given Zatanna has never been presented as a physical combatant, all the arguments about the impracticable nature of this design don't really apply. However, it does serve to make her the centre of attention, which is perfectly in keeping with the character, and if this costume tweak makes the character more popular with teenage fan boys, than I'm all for it, as they might give the character enough of an audience base to support a monthly series. In any event, in a effort not to get hung up on a simple costume change, Ryan Sook deserves credit for capturing the more surreal aspects of the story. How can one not love Read Full Review

    Oh, and as much as I like breasts, Zatanna's outfit by Ryan Sook is distracting and ridiculous. Maybe if there were a story providing lift and support I wouldn't have noticed so much. This is almost like having Joss Whedon recycle old Star Trek plots for--What's that? Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Read Full Review
