razzatazz's Demon Knights #6 - The Balance review

You and me

There are some interesting parallels between this series and Justice League thus far.  Whereas justice League has been basically been one long action sequence, this series has taken some time to develop the characters a bit more profoundly.  Thus in comparison whereas Justice League has been all-action (and relied on the reader's previous knowledge of these characters) this series didn't have that luxury but in its buildup has actually managed to make a more enjoyable battle sequence than the one there.  So each of the individual actions of the characters here - between Exoristos' sacrifice to Etrigan's intervention to Madame Xanadu's moral dilemma -  all give a bit more weight to the overall battle sequence.  In the background are the other new characters which have also been introduced and which share a certain amount of interest overall as well.  With a build up like this, the creative team better have something spectacular planned for the finale, but they have mostly not let anyone down thus far so that is entirely possible.

    Demon knights most likely came about as a response to the large influx of sword and sorcery based graphic novels coming out recently, such as Queen Sonja, Conan, and the wheel of time adaptations, but the fact that this formula is tweaked to fit the history of the DCU is what really makes it stand out, and this issue just delivers 20 pages of concentrated awesome that it's hard not to love such a fun, well written book.This book has been from the start about the characters, and this issue contin...
