This arc continues Lemire’s run of JLD as many would expect it to. It begins with a battle between this arc’s villain Felix Faust, but the focus of this issue shifts quickly to Constantine and Steve Trevor, and builds on their relationship and their plot to defeat Faust. As with the rest of lemire’s tenure on the title, the result is solid supehero action, if a bit predictable. The transition from Peter Milligan’s issues to Lemire’s is a tad jarring, as Milligan’s run, which I preferred was filled with big crazy concepts and wacky monsters, whereas Lemire’s run has this toned down a bit. Lemire’s dialogue is funny at times, and bland at times. Mikel Janin’s art is the standout of the issue, and creates a beatiful border between photo-reference, and lush textured character figures. I’ll probably switch to trades on the title, if solely for Janin’s lovely artwork.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. I loved the appearance of Tim Hunter in the New DCU. I’m actually hoping that they’ll find a way to make him a useful player once again in the new universe. I totally loved his Books of Magic series as written by John Ney Rieber.
