I have loved the first three issues of Justice League Dark, and the Witching Hour follows immediately on them, with the team having just faced the Upside Down Man.
Wonder Woman, it turns out, was marked by Hecate, the triple goddess of witches, as a child. Now, Hecate is making a power play, and using those she has selected over the years.
The story is much more in the tone of Justice League Dark than of Wonder Woman. There are a few cameos by some minor magical characters, who don’t fare so well. Some horrifying moments, and a few dashes of weird comedy. I love Swamp Thing’s body mulch.
And I also love the way the main League get sidelined, without even being aware of it.
If you enjoy Justice League Dark, you cannot miss this story. If you haven’t been reading Justice League Dark, you really ought to be, and should probably pick this up, and the first three issues, before you get too far behind.
