Justice League Dark #8

Tonight we'll tackle the final two parts of the Rise of the Vampires storyline crossing over between Justice League Dark and I, Vampire. First up is the penultimate issue of this x-over.

Justice League Dark #8:

Summary: Deadman and Constantine fail in their mission to get Andrew Bennett to return to life, mainly because Andrew felt he had done too many evil acts while “alive”. Meanwhile, Madame Xanadu begs some god-like being for assistance against Cain, who was draining the world's magic into himself. The Shade's technicolor dream coat goes crazy and transports him to a world with his dead girlfriend, which makes Shade happy so he decides to stay there... Wha?! Deadman and Constantine meet up with Zatanna, Xanadu and Mary(the vampire), as they prepare to make their final stand against Cain and his overwhelming vampire horde. However, this issue ends with Xanadu's master returning Andrew to life.

Thoughts: I don't really have much to say about this one... The “team” here still hasn't ever been called the Justice League Anything, and don't exactly act like a team. Shade left in a very offhanded manner(“Yeah, they don't need me anymore. I'm out.”), and Andrew suddenly comes back to life after having whined about the fact that he didn't want to. Whatever says I.

Score: 5 1/2 out of 10.
