First: Justice League Dark is a stupid name. Not that Dark Justice League would be any better. But at least they haven’t referred to themselves as the JLD yet. Or DJL.
Second: Everything this book does, Demon Knights does better, and it includes some of the same characters. Which might make for an interesting crossover, but then I have to ask, why do both books exist at all?
And it’s not that this is even a bad book, it’s by far Peter Milligan’s best offering in the new DC Universe. The thing with the teeth was cool.
Mikel Janin’s art is okay, but it’s not creepy enough. It does a serviceable job, but I can’t help but think that a more stylized artist would have really made some of these pages sing. Ryan Sook did the cover, why couldn’t he have done the first six issues? The first three? There were a lot of great opportunities to show off.
