    This builds out of The Witching Hour as Circe makes her move. She assembles her own Injustice League Dark, but unfortunately they don't get to do much. It's a real shame because I like the idea of the evil magicians in the DC universe teaming up against our intrepid team. This is mainly Circe against the JLD. Tynion is doing a fantastic job with this series. Can't wait to read more. This builds out of The Witching Hour as Circe makes her move.

    This had such a great set-up - what's not to love about the Injustice League Dark! - but the last issue rushed the ending so it was quite anti-climatic, thin, and disappointing. Without giving away the plot, Wonder Woman's long-time nemesis (and most recently ally) Circe assembles Solomon Grundy, Floronic Man, Papa Midnite, and Klarion (and his cat) to be the Injustice League Dark. But other than Circe, none of the actions of these others characters contribute anything to the main storyline and This had such a great set-up - what's not to love about the Injustice League Dark! - but the last issue rushed the ending so it was quite anti-climatic, thin, and disappointing.

But other than Circe, none of the actions of these others characters contribute anything to the main storyline and aren't even meaningfully involved in the big final battle. This volume is more of a Wonder Woman story with cameos by the other Justice League Dark members. Otherwise, the story is suitably interesting and the artwork is strong. It was an enjoyable read, but could have been much better if the supporting characters (heroes and villains) had more to do of consequence and the final confrontation was more multi-faceted.

    The Otherkind and the Lords Of Order were one thing, but now the Justice League Dark must face Circe and her Injustice League! Klarion, Solomon Grundy, Floronic Man, Papa Midnite, and Circe invade the Hall Of Justice intent on recruiting their last member, and rewrite the laws of magic in the process! The JLD don't get a chance to catch their breath, do they? Fresh off the battle with the Lords Of Order, Circe makes her move and throws them into turmoil again. I always love the idea of Injustice The Otherkind and the Lords Of Order were one thing, but now the Justice League Dark must face Circe and her Injustice League!

The JLD don't get a chance to catch their breath, do they? Fresh off the battle with the Lords Of Order, Circe makes her move and throws them into turmoil again. I always love the idea of Injustice versions of Justice Leagues, especially when the members are chosen as mirrors of the Justice Leaguers like they are here. The clash becomes personal, and James Tynion IV keeps it so even when the story goes even bigger as plot threads from the Witching Hour crossover with Wonder Woman come home to roost. Tynion's long game is still on display, and he turns these six issues into an event-level story without even trying. JLD is one of the most consistently good looking books in DC's stable; Alvaro Martinez Bueno does most of the heavy lifting, with assistance from Fernando Blanco (a personal favourite) and Javi Fernandez (a rapidly rising star), and they're all stunning. A story this big needs artists that can go big, and they most definitely do. Justice League Dark continues to knock it out of the park. Everyone on this creative team is firing on all cylinders and I am always delighted when I open a new issue. Big, big fan of what's going on in this book.

    Another pretty fun volume. James knows how to tell fun witchcraft stories with some of the best members. This time Wonder Woman gets taken over but a unlikely ally might be the savior. A 4 out of 5.

    Fantastic. Circe takes center stage as Justice League Dark have to face a powerful magic unlike any other. Tynion has really knock this book out of the park. The artwork and colors crackle energy and excitement. There is never a dull moment in the story. Tynion does a great job building on the character of Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman just really fits into the world of magic and myth. I really love the call backs to previous Justice League lore. Circe is a well written villain though I wish we got Fantastic.

Circe is a well written villain though I wish we got a little more of the motivations for the Injustice league Dark team. Circe put together a pretty good threatening team: Solomon Grundy, Klarion, Papa Midnite, & Floronic Man . Loved all those villains but Tynion could have stretch out this threat a little more. Overall this continues to be a incredible series. I am looking forward to seeing how Diana & crew bring back Swamp Thing. I am very curious of how Tynion is going to lead this series into the DC event Dark Nights Death Metal. This series is definitely a must own.

    Basic Plot: The Justice League Dark contend against Circe's Injustice League Dark. There are just so many cool characters being used in this series. I love how the team is coming together and dealing with things. I like how different the vibe to this book is- much more horror than superhero. The art is good and reflects the weird and magical well. I think it does move a bit fast, and there's a lot of information dumping, but it's still very enjoyable.

    3.5 stars I’d rather this series go back to the first volume’s format of several 1-2 issue plotlines, but the trade-spanning arc here is decent and suitably weird at least, plus the standout art is fantastical fun as usual. I’d forgotten how much I enjoy this team-up’s characters and their playful interaction.

The big confrontation ends up devolving into standard superhero “my power levels can suddenly overwhelm yours” nonsense, but I appreciate that the series keeps justifying this by having the heroes essentially taking out bigger, riskier loans each time to pay off the previous bill that’s now come due. It’s sort of like heroism as ponzi scheme, and a humorous take on the typical escalation of stakes.

    A melhor encarnação da Liga da Justiça Dark (não que ela tenha tido muitas), apresenta mais um volume de histórias escritas por James Tynion IV que não somente balançou as estruturas da equipe com membros não triviais como o Morcego-Humano e a Mulher-Maravilha, como conseguiu fazer com que essas presenças na equipe fizessem sentido. Sabemos que nos últimos tempos, roteiristas enfiam e retiram personagens das equipes sem trabalhar necessariamente um propósito para eles.

Se você gosta do lado sobrenatural da DC Comics, vai curtir este encadernado, certamente!

    I really don't know what to make of this book as it retreads a lot of ground from previous books without really advancing the story. It also seemed like they were trying to wrap things up enough to put them on hold for the "Year of the Villain" story. The Doctor Fate arc also seemed rather contrived. There's a lot here though, and plenty to build on for later. I really don't know what to make of this book as it retreads a lot of ground from previous books without really advancing the story.

    Having just read The Witching Hour, I felt extremely prepared for the The Witching War, where Circe takes Hecate's gathered powers, creates an Injustice League Dark, and tries to...destroy magic. Or become magic. Or something It's kind of unclear what Circe wants - when she explains herself to Hecate in the book, Circe claims she's motivated by "spite." Okay!

Wonder Woman is possessed (again!), the Justice League Dark is up against a wall, and they're forced to unleash their darkest magics and make deals they'll certainly regret in a future volume. The book is action-packed and gorgeously drawn, though there are enough character-building teamwork moments (for both sides!) that it never feels overwhelming. This whole Justice League Dark series has left me satisfied so far. Really rare for a DC comic these days.

    3.5 Stars. Justice League Dark is a title that I try to follow, but it covers huge portions of the DC Universe that I have yet to grasp fully onto. This has never been clearer than with this Volume and the last, all involving the battle with Circe. We basically can boil this Volume down to JLD (Wonder Woman, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Man-Bat, Detective Chimp) and Constantine and Doctor Fate VS the Injustice League Dark (Solomon Grundy, Floronic Man, Klarion the Witch Boy, Papa Midnite).

Throw in Circe, Eclipso, Hecate, the Upside-Down Man, Drakul Karfang, Wonder Woman being possessed, a new Doctor Fate... This Volume is kind of all over the place... but still good. Two important things: 1) At the end, the war is over and Circe is contained, as well as bad guys defeated. 2) Swamp Thing was infected by The Rot (by Jason Woodrue) and the next Volume will have them seeking out Abby Arcane to help. If you are interested in these characters or this storyline, read this. If not, it bears no overall weight against the main DCU (as far as I can see) and you could probably skip it. Semi-recommend, with reservations.

    5 James Tynion continues to surprise me and Justice League Dark remains one of the strongest DC titles. I had expected this series to start a slow decline but Tynion has remained strong with the overall tone and storyline arc.

DC has given this series one hell of a team and that showcases the trust they have with Tynion. The guy is currently guiding Batman until another big name jumps aboard. This volume of JL Dark closes a lot of the current story and leaves this in a perfect place for a new arc. It might be a little anti climatic but this isn't the end of DC and when your in a serialized comic label it's tough to expect earth shattering moments.

    Justice League Dark is definitely one of DC's consistently good ongoing titles. Not surprised that I love this as I'm yet to be disappointed by any James Tynion IV book.

She like that in Wonder Woman & Justice League Dark: The Witching Hour and in Greg Rucka's Wonder Woman: Rebirth Deluxe Edition Book 2. In this story she's basically possessed and wants to take over the world, which is not something easily portrayed as nuanced. At least she wasn't killed off. (hide spoiler)] This volume is more action oriented, which is usually not my preference, so I liked it less than the previous two. It's not the book's fault though, it says Witching War in the title.

    I'm starting to get the feel for this series. For the third arc in a row, Wonder Woman and her team, the ones who are supposed to monitor magic in the world while having few actual magicians on the team (only now with a couple Fates and John Constantine, it's a bit more magician-friendly), they get their heads handed to them by foes they barely know about for five parts, and then there's a lot of flash and bang and they prevail in the sixth in a way that looks almost easy.

    While the whole "dark" side of superheroes usually isn't my thing, I have to admit... I'm enjoying this series. If I had to say a downside, it's that I wish some of the magic was explained a bit more. (Often it seems like things just happen and it's... because magic! Even big things like the villain being trapped in a mirror. Why a mirror? Where did it come from? It's never explained enough for me to have that "aha" moment.)

    A very enjoyable Year of the Villain event! The stakes are high, the villains are wining, and the heroes are desperate. The ambiance of doom that this story has is so much better than the actual Doom War. Tynion did a really good job at developing not only the characters but the journey they all took to get to the Dark. I know that Tynion leaves this series shortly after this volume, and I can tell he made sure to leave with a bang.

    I cannot wait to reread this series. It can be a bit jarring to read them months apart but the core concepts about potential and hope are fantastic, the action is fluid and the characters are well established and interesting. I can't wait to see Zatanna break out of her shell a little but we know its coming. I cannot wait to reread this series.

    The Justice League Dark team, especially Wonder Woman, face some of the most terrifying and powerful villains in the DC universe while fighting their own inner demons. Things look pretty grim, but luckily there are deus ex machinas that can save the day. The story is getting a little less convoluted, but there's still a sense that a lot of it is just to move the pieces to the right places for the upcoming Year of the Villain crossover.
