Comics this week

Justice League Dark Annual #1- The chase for the Book of Magic ends here with the team in a final showdown against Nick Necro. Everyone shows up in this issue as writer Jeff Lemire manages to squeeze anyone remotely magical into the book. Some of the guest-star made prefect sense and served a function to move the story forward (Frankenstein, Princess Amaya), others did not (Andrew Bennett). However artist Mikel Janin did a fine job in portraying everyone and seems to have great fun in the action scenes. Fun is the best thing about this issue. Both Lemire and Janin seem to enjoy putting this issue together with John Constantine’s wisecracks about his teammates being funnier than usual. The only thing I had a problem with is the ending which seems a little cheap to me but on the whole this was quite an entertaining and fun annual.
