You have to love a book that can have it's main character (in this case, Constantine), wonder around for a few pages, talking, while having been decapitated. Constantine is proving more and more that he just might have what it takes to be a leader. We see he is still completely full of faults but he does have a high level of skills at his disposal. This story may tie into FOREVER EVIL overall, but it's also tying into the Forever Evil: Blight story as well.
Because of the results of Trinity War, Constantine is trying to find his former teammates. To do so, he's enlisted the help of some others. It's great seeing his interaction with Swamp Thing due to their recent encounter. Nightmare Nurse I can take or leave. At least she's there to put Constantine in his place when necessary. Seeing Phantom Stranger and Pandora with others definitely adds some spice to the mix.
Of course, the big draw for many is the fact that the Sea King is somehow here after being killed when the Crime Syndicate appeared at the end of Trinity War. He may be a dark version of Aquaman but that's part of what makes him intriguing. His appearance here will definitely leave some ramifications.
Mikel Janin's art does a fine job balancing the mystical realms as well as the other crazy locations called for in this issue. You'll get a kick out of the battle between the team and the Sea King.
The past few issues have been a little convoluted. We in the middle of a tie in story arc within a story arc. The cover doesn't even mention Forever Evil: Blight and that may leave some readers confused if they haven't been following the other tie in issues.
This may be a personal gripe but I just can't take Blight seriously. He reminds me a little of Serpentor in G.I. Joe. I don't feel like he's a complete embodiment of evil.
You have to be sure to read PHANTOM STRANGER #15 to find out what happens next. Crossovers are great but it's a bit of a bummer when you feel forced to read another series. Although, you should be reading PHANTOM STRANGER.
While a lot of the action of FOREVER EVIL is going on in the main series as JUSTICE LEAGUE, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK continues to show us that there is more to the story. John Constantine is doing his best to step up to locate his missing teammates and has formed an allegiance with some others. To make things even more dire, they will soon find themselves facing the Sea King, thought dead at the end of Trinity War, as well as a whole bunch of dark magic. This event within an event will definitely leave a mark on this title so don't miss it.
