"Pupaphobia" ends with Zatanna stripped of her powers, her body, and a mind of her own, and trapped under glass for all eternity! The curse her father placed on murderous puppeteer Oscar Hampel has fallen on her, and there's no escaping it. Unless help comes to Zatanna from a most unlikely source...

    My only real gripe here is something I commented on last issue. Zee is missing for months, and Mikey is the only one to put it together? Zatanna is part of the super human community, and has been shown to be particularly close with Batman. You know, the World's Greatest Detective? I find it unlikely at best that Mikey worked this out, but Bats, and even Nightwing/Batman didn't. It's one of the problems with being in a "shared universe," if you want to handle things in house, sometimes you have to do things that don't quite make sense like this. But, it's a small complaint in a well executed story. Read Full Review

    With Dini, and now Igle, at the helm of Zatanna, we should be in for some great story telling and we are definitely in for some great art. Dini is a proven writer, so he should have some stronger storylines up his sleeve for the upcoming issues of the series. Sometimes it just takes a character a little while to get settled into his or her own solo book. It took Supergirl a while to get settled. With Zatanna were halfway there. The art is in place, and Dini should be getting the story in place shortly. Read Full Review

    A not so strong ending to an otherwise fun arc is ultimately saved by Igle's superior artwork, and the book overall is similarly saved by the promise of Igle's continued presence. It's great when a strong artist is so perfectly paired with a comic, this is a match made in heaven for fans. Read Full Review

    Meh. As a huge fan of Hush, I can't say I liked this storyline at all... What happened to the master villain who could fight both Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson to a standstill all while concocting all sorts of deathtraps? I mean poor Hush... His credibility as a villain has just been going downhill since his first couple of appearances in that awesome Hush storyline by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee... Now he's locked in Arkham, AS Dr. Tomas Elliot, where nobody believes a word he says. At least most of the other times he's lost he managed to evade capture. This time he gets squashed by Jane Freaking Doe, gets his face cut off and gets locked in Arkham... Maybe he and Jason Todd can talk about the good old days when they were both meaningful Batman villains... Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Apr 4, 2011

    The writing remains as acceptable as ever, although the switch to a more standard fare artist dips the overall quality. Dini should focus more fundamentally on characterization and world-building more than trying to create challenging conflicts for his lead. Read Full Review
