Anything dark is pretty much right up my alley, so I've been excited to see what Justice League Dark will be bringing to the table with DC Comics' New 52. So far, I've been really impressed with everything New 52, and of course there are a few titles that aren't that great but that comes with anything new. A great amount of these titles though have been amazing, so add to that success that there was a darker title that would appeal to me even further, and I'm fanboy excited. Now, I have read the first volume and while I can't say it is among the best of the New 52 titles, it is definitely one of the best in terms of artwork. Much like the current Batwoman, the art is phenomenal and it makes use of the entire page and non-traditional layouts. Just like the characters that comprise of this dark team, they're full of colorful and odd traits, which is really what puts Justice League Dark amongst the most creative of the initiative. I really liked the largely illustrated scenes where heroes and people of the dark both try and attack on the witch known as Enchantress, and seeing Superman in particular being torn apart by a witch tooth storm really explains why the Justice League Dark exists. New 52 put out a lot of renewed titles with a lot of the same old, so it's cool to see that someone out there by the name of Peter Milligan penned a different and unique super hero squadron. The art is by far the best part of this book, and now I'm excited to read the second volume as it is written by Jeff Lemire who has done amazing things with Animal Man. If you like the darker side of comics, John Constantine, or any of the darker elements of DC, this book is for you.
