Until now, Zatanna and Brother Night have sparred from a distance but that all changes when Night targets Zatanna's closest friends, provoking a magical brawl like nothing you've seen before! San Francisco might never be the same!

    Zatanna has been a fantastic book since its debut, but Dini and Roux really raised the bar with this amazing issue. Everything about this issue works perfectly in synch as this amazingly talented creative team puts on a showcase for quality storytelling and characterization. From the strong dialogue and inventive action sequences to the gorgeous designs and stellar expressions, this comic is pure gold from cover to cover. You absolutely should not miss this one under any circumstances. Read Full Review

    Well, I have to say things ended a bit more quickly than I'd expected. But Paul Dini has laid some fair groundwork for the future and Zatanna has my attention. Read Full Review

    Roux is taking a few months off while artists like Chad Hardin and Yanick Paquette step on board, and I'll definitely miss his art; hopefully he'll be back quickly. Half of the attraction of "Zatanna" is definitely his gorgeous renderings of Zatanna and her world. If Dini can step it up in Roux's absence, though, we might not even notice that Roux is gone. Bring on the magic! Read Full Review

    As it is I just cant whole heartedly invest into the solo adventures of Zatanna despite the fact that I really do like the character herself. Dini is a good enough writer to be able to work out the few kinks I found in this offering. He needs to better utilize the magical aspect of the spells and the accompanying incantations primarily. Personally, I think someone along the lines of a Grant Morrison would have much better success with this type of book. However, I do think there needs to be an artistic change though to make this a premier book. I do know that the next couple of issues at least will have a different artist. I sincerely hope that they can find the appropriate tone. Right now I am sticking with this solely for the fact that I am fascinated with Zatanna Zatara. If things stay this stagnant much longer I will be jumping ship faster then you can say ominoreg! Read Full Review
