JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #28

-
[ MAGICAL SALE NOW ON
Pleased be warned. The following comic book created by J. M. DeMatteis and Vicente Cifuentes, contains words and pictures, but not nuts, glutton, or high fat dairy products. Well, that is unless you take into consideration what DC Comics got up to with a magic wand in March, 2014. The dirty sods.

To QUOTE John Constantine: 'Bollocks'.

THE STORY:
Hey! Don't go pissing your pants yet, John and Zee. I promise I won't do to you what Felix Faust and I did to that angelic freak, Zaurel.

I mean, do you think you'd look good as a weapon to aide the Crime Syndicate with?

Nah! I didn't think so either. Still. One of reasons why I turned up within your dreamscape today, my friends, is to present to you with a very simple proposition. Come and work for me, and I will save your physical selves from any actual harm. Refuse my offer, and I'll blow your f*cking brains out.

Now have you got all that, folks? Has my simple proviso sunken into your small little love-struck brains? I hope so. Because you know I never mess about, don't you? Me. Your old pal, Nick Necro.

THE GOOD:
To be perfectly honest with you, dear reader, I found 'Unholy Trinity' to be one of those stories I'm none too sure about myself.

Now please don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to say that following this narrative was a complete and utter waste of my time. It's just that there were a couple of aspects about it that didn't feel quite right to me.

For instance, as much as I didn't mind Vicente Cifuentes artwork on this book, I'm quite sure I would have liked it a lot more if Mikel Janin did it instead of him. Also, as much as I liked those scenes where John and Zee talked about love and whatnot, plus that other one where they both went 'BOOOM!' together, on the other hand, well, we've seen this sort of a thing before.

Heck, I'd say that the only real aspect about this adventure that really got my blood pumping was when the Spectre turned up at the end of it.

THE BAD:
The only real problem I had with this adventure is that I didn't understand certain scenes because I failed to buy some of the other chapters associated with this multi-part cross-over event.

Again. Please don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to imply you won't understand this story either. What I'm trying to say is that there were a few sections that left me wondering what some of it was all about.

Also, I have to mention not liking the mistreatment of Zaurel because... well... who likes the sight of a tortured angel?   

THE MUSIC:
During that scene where John told Zee how much he loved her, the sardonic side of my brain started conjuring up the Michael Ball tune, 'Love Changes Everything', because I'm one silly f*cker.




THE COMPARISON:
Now without giving too much away, I'd say this yarn reminded me of a longer lasting rechargeable battery, cause that is how Felix and Nick ultimately treated their captives.

Just think about it. You know it makes sense.

THE CONCLUSION:
OK. So we have one more issue of this 'Forever Evil' story-line left, and then this series will be... will be... will be? Hmm? I wonder what it will be, actually.  

Now I'm quite sure it'll have a whole new direction like the rest of the New 52. Especially since Mikel has been given a brand new 'assignment' to deal with.  But apart from that, well, I'm not quite sure what's going to happen with 'Justice League Dark'.

Then again, sometimes it's better that I don't know what's going on, don't you agree, dear reader? Nowadays too many things are being spoiled because of 'press releases' and 'whatnot'. And I personally enjoy it when I'm left in the dark at times, so a story can have more of an impact on me once I've sat down and actually read it.

Nuff said.
