    It's intelligently written by Ray Fawkes, the artwork is satisfying and complimentary to the story and the overall feel of the book is of an enjoyable read that perfectly supplements and even enhances what is happening in DC's Forever Evil comic book event. Read Full Review

    All right. I'll buy it. I'm on board. So let's get this new "crossover-within-a-crossover" going. Justice League Dark, Constantine, The Phantom Stranger, and even Pandora's book itself will form the grouping of Forever Evil: Blight, the more magical and supernatural crossover issues that will be coinciding directly with the events of the main Forever Evil crossover. If you've been paying attention recently, DC Comics has been quite sneaky with their solicitations. They're no longer grouped as they once were. There's no longer a "The Dark" section of the New 52. Could Forever Evil: Blight be the reason? Does this mean some people are going to die? Does this mean some series are going to get cancelled? Does this mean some teams are going to be getting consolidated? Well, one thing's for sure: Anything can happen. Count me in. Read Full Review

    I love the character of Pandora, and can't wait to see what we get in Forever Evil: Blight.  But sadly I don't think the writers can wait either, so what we get is a issue with little more than a villain monologuing, and rehashing a origin story only five issues in.  Francis Portela's artwork is solid, and really works for this title, but the plot was just lacking overall.  Still looking forward to continuing this title, and so should you.

    DC Comics News - Max Dweck Nov 21, 2013

    The biggest problem Ray Fawkes seems to have with this series is a constant breaking of storytelling's Golden Rule: Show, don't tell. When we're told what's going on, like Marcus's backstory or Pandora's combat abilities or the truth behind the Seven Sins in this issue, it just cheapens the story. When it's properly shown, like Pandora's history or her learning how to combat the Sins, it's a lot better. This issue is basically the opposite of the previous issue, which was fantastic. The quality of this comic seems to rise and fall from issue to issue, and it needs to stabilize at or above the quality line soon if Pandora wants a chance at sticking around. Read Full Review
