Zatanna defeats Brother Night rather brilliantly by freeing the sould that empower him. I didn’t expect this to happen so quickly but we all know Brother Night will be back. I loved this issue as Dini continues to come up with clever ways for Zatanna to use her powers and I was glad John Zatara wasn’t under Brother Night’s control for too long. Fuseli is a great character and I hope he comes back before too long. I was hoping he would become Zatanna’s reluctant sidekick but it doesn’t look like that will happen. Good stuff.

What a freaking great week for comics! I was pleasenty surprise by two new series – Legion and this – the debut of Zatanna’s new ongoing series. I wasn’t sure about it because honestly Zatanna is kind of a hit-or-miss character for me and I always thought it was kinda strange of Dini brings her into anything he is writing – but I was wrong because this was awesome! Dini sets up Zatanna’s rogues gallery with some creepy mystic villains led by the frightening – and pefect for San Francisco – Brother Night, a former hippie turned evil mystic. Fuseli is creepy as well along with the rest of the villains. I love how Zatanna is portrayed here, always confident and ready for her next move. Much better then she has been written since Identity Crisis as being filled with self-doubt. When she change into work clothes – it was breathtaking. Kudos to Roux for that. A great start for this book all around!
