Exclusive DC Comics Preview: "Justice League Dark #17"

February 25, 2013  |  9:00am

Writers: Jeff Lemire, Ray Fawkes
Artist: Mikel Janin
Publisher: DC
Release Date: February 27, 2013

Justice League Dark ups the stakes for Constantine, Zatanna, Timothy Hunter, Deadman, Black Orchid, Frankenstein, and Madame Xanadu with new foes and collapsing realities in the third chapter of “The Death of Magic” story arc. After transporting to an alternate dimension where magic is outlawed, DC’s super team of “weirdo occult types” finds itself enslaved by a sect of science fascists ready for some incredibly unethical experimentation. Miles below the ground, a group of rebel fairies inform mage-in-training Timothy Hunter that he’s heir to a legacy with great expectations. Also: a spacetime apocalypse.

Writers Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes continue to merge the supernatural dread of iconic Vertigo books like Hellblazer and The Books of Magic with pulpy twists and matinee action. This is also the only place to check out the writing pair’s take on John Constantine before they relaunch the Cockney magician’s adventures in Constantine #1 on March 20th.
