Comments Off on Comic Book A Day – Day 24 – Justice League Dark #11 (2012)
Finally! This is the Justice League dark I’ve been waiting for! I just love this Jeff Lemire guy. Everything he writes turns to gold (or rather really inspired ink on a piece of paper as it would be very expensive to buy gold comic books).
I have to admit I was pretty disappointed with the first story arch of Justice League Dark. Was it the worst thing I ever read? No. But that’s like saying the vomit pizza didn’t taste as bad as the diarrhea pizza.
I’m a big fan of Lemire’s dialogue, but even more so of his story plotting and universe building. I’m not sure if he came up with the concept of the Green and The Red, but he’s certainly maximized the ideas behind them.
The Black Room, using Golems as security, Special Ops with magical enchantments? Sign me up! Plus the introduction to the New 52 of the boy wizard, who was a boy wizard before that other boy wizard. This books got a little something for everyone who loves their DC magic. Oh and Mike Janin’s art is pretty wicked as well.
I’m giving Justice League Dark 11 (2012) 5 out of 6 Aarons.
