Hecate knows this world isn't strong enough to resist the Otherkind, so she's going to burn it down and replace it with a world of her own...starting with ...

Incredible start to this arc. Scott Snyder has been saying that everything is connect, since the Metal saga and going into the future. And you can totally feel that. What hes doing is a really well written, big, bold, gracious, epic saga that im insanely happy to be witnessing!

It only gets interesting for me when they arrive at Circes place. The last page is cool. Overall, not as good as the first part of The Witching Hour.

"The Witching Hour" part two! The Justice League Dark barely escaped their first encounter with Hecate, but they know she'll be coming back for the power inside Wonder Woman. But what if Diana could tap into that power herself to take on Hecate directly?

The art was good, great art team, except in the Guy Gardner one. I dont like Riley Rossmos art. I hope he changes my mind with the new Martian Manhunter mini. Anyway, the Etrigan short story was the best! I feel like it would have been even better if the Batman and the Etrigan stories were bigger, 30 pages long each.
The Wonder Woman story would have benefited a lot if it were more adult, mor more

Im not gonna lie. When i first heard about this story arc and saw the first cover, i was a little concerned. It felt like an OK idea. But last weeks JLD made me excited and this first part of The Witching Hour is amazing! Wonder Woman is a total badass (of course) and this whole event seems very promising! I dont remember if ive said it before, but James Tynion knows how to write teams SO WELL!

I think by now everyone knows that the first two issues of JLO were totally remade. And i kind of felt that here. The story was a bit rushed and the art (that was still amazing) was also rushed.
