Pull List 23: I think it would've sounded cooler with "mage" in the title...



Justice League Dark
Writer: Peter Milligan
Artist: Mikel Janin



John Constantine, Deadman, Shade the Changing Man and Madame Xanadu are Justice League Dark, a band of supernatural heroes united to stop the dark things the rest of the DCU does not see in JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #1, by Peter Milligan and artist Mikel Janin.


Here's a curious team. It isn't completely new, what with DC trying the same concept in 2006 or so with the supernatural team Shadowpact. I'll admit to not knowing what the problem with it was, other than it trying to be too aware of itself, but the comic was canceled after twenty-five issues or so. Hopefully tacking "Justice League" onto the title, with a talented writer like Peter Milligan, will give this comic more longevity; especially if it takes off in the digital market the way DC wants it to. Magic characters have far more appeal to mainstream audiences, after all.
