REVIEW: DC's Dark Crisis #2


After a 12 months of foreboding in Infinite Frontier and months of preparation in Justice League Incarnate, DC’s most anticipated occasion has lastly come to go — the Justice League of Prime Earth is lifeless. A lack of this magnitude beforehand occurred as soon as in DC historical past, in 2003’s JLA: The Obsidian Age, when Batman had already established a backup League as a contingency. This time, the Titans have nobody to look to for assist, and Deathstroke is set to reignite outdated rivalries. Written by Joshua Williamson with paintings from Daniel Sampere and Alejandro Sánchez and letters from Tom Napolitano, Darkish Disaster #2 buries the heroes in serious trouble.
