Book Description

23 July 2013 Justice League Dark (Book 2)
New York Times bestselling author Jeff Lemire takes over Justice League Dark - and just when you thought it couldn't get darker... Vampires across the world have gone berserk, attacking anything with a pulse. Fearing her apocalyptic vision of the future has come to pass, Madame Xanadu mobilizes the team to intervene. But everything the Justice League Dark members know about how to slay a vampire is useless, for the world has changed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything including the kitchen sink 2 April 2014
By Gareth Simon TOP 100 REVIEWER
The stories running through issues #7-13 of the `New 52' Justice League Dark are collected, along with issue #0 and Annual #1, as Justice League Dark Volume 2: The Books of Magic (The New 52). There are two main stories collected here, as well as a `secret origin' for John Constantine's trenchcoat (no, really) in issue #0, guest starring Zatanna. The first story is an `I, Vampire' crossover, for which you will need I, Vampire Volume 2: Rise of the Vampires TP (The New 52) to get the full story; followed by the three-part `Black Room', in which Steve Trevor hires John Constantine to get the team back together for a mission for the US Government -

"Around ARGUS we've even taken to nicknaming you the `Justice League Dark'."
"That is the stupidest name I've ever heard. Besides, we're no team. The band broke up."

However, the promise of a trolley dash through the Black Room - that secret US Government vault where the keep the Ark of the Covenant and related stuff - is enough to get Constantine on side, to investigate a secret South American temple where Felix Faust is up to something, which turns out to be [spoiler] in order to find the fabled Books of Magic. It all goes horribly wrong, of course, as Madame Xanadu's vision of the apocalypse turns out to be what happens when Constantine gets his hands of the Books...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story and Team 23 Feb 2014
I really enjoyed Vol. 1 and was pretty excited to see the writer change to Canadian Jeff Lemire starting with this volume. This is a doozy of a story with tons of plot points, character, and a huge cast of characters. As I said for Vol. 1, all these guys were new to me so I'm just starting to get a feel for them with this book which was a nice long one that involved some serious writing. I really like this team. Deadman is by far my favourite and I've ordered DC Presents Vol. 1 which tells his New 52 backstory. Xanadu doesn't get a lot of page time in this volume but I've figured her out since Vol. 1. I love Shade, though he disappears half way through. Mindwarp is not present though mentioned so who knows what's up with him. Andrew Bennett doesn't get much page time here either but I like him, he's not nice but I'm getting an Angel vibe from him anyway. The two original members I don't like are Constantine (an obnoxious, arrogant jerk) and Zatanna (how lame is backwards spell magic and it never works!). New people are introduced in this book and popping out of the woodwork wherever you turn. My favourite new member is Black Orchid, very cool! It was even nice for me to see some familiar faces make an appearance: Batgirl, Amethyst, Felix Faust and there are even more. So if you like books with tons of heroes and villains this is sure to please. Great story though too. I won't say much but very intricate as the various people, groups and allegiances search for the books of magic. Not everyone ends up to be trustworthy and the ending is quite a shocking cliffhanger. When I first started JLD, I wasn't sure I'd like the superhero/paranormal mix, but this one has me hooked and I like getting to know a whole new-to-me cast without any preconceived notions. Really looking forward to Vol. 3
