Not a fan of Shade's coat, but the rest look great. Zatanna looks like she's about to go clubbing though.

Overall, very interesting line-up. I really...just don't get what is up with Zatanna's redesign, though. Her suit was perfect because it was a magician's costume, and she's a ****ing magician. Change for the sake of change, I guess.

I do find it pretty interesting that (and this is something I just noticed myself) Deadman doesn't really seem to have a redesign. Or is that just me? The collar seems different, but could easily be something left up to artistic design.

.....I don't like him.....he looks like a douche.

And Shade's coat OWNS. Take it away and he ain't Shade.

Zatanna without a top hat or fishnets upsets me

I mean her outfit still looks good and she be looking hawt in those leather pants but she should be wearing the fish nets and the hat. She doesnt look right without them

Shade's coat is a coat made of pure epicness

I hope he has his top hat and shades too. The Shade is one well dressed mutha

You're thinking of THE SHADE. That's Shade from "Shade the Changing Man".

Well, if they do it right, it'll look different every panel.

Justice League: Dark, Swamp Thing and the Shade are the only ones peeking my interest.

I'm going to give JLD a chance. It seems like they didn't place much effort in choosing a name for the group. I'm okay with Zatanna's new look. I'm hoping for something that stands out from the typical superhero team-up book.

The cast of characters for that series looks pretty interesting so I'm planning to check it out for sure

John Constantine as a member of a Justice League is on so many levels

I agree. She should be a member of the JL Dark.

But I'm sorry, the "Dr. Strange of the DCU" is a moniker regulated to Dr. Fate.

Currently going through the first volume of Madame Xanadu by Matt Wagner. Good stuff, if not a little slow. I wonder how much of this stuff is going to be maintained come September though.

However, Justice League Dark better have some Jason Blood/Etrigan action going on, along with some Phantom Stranger appearances. And hopefully Demon Knights goes into Morgana Le Fey's siege of Camelot. While I've not yet read any of the Demon stuff outside of Kirby's original run, his appearances in Swamp Thing and Matt Wagner's 4 issue mini series, I'd like to see that whole ordeal in full if it hasn't been done so in any other of the Demon series.

Loved Wagner's Madame Xanadu, was very disappointed when it came to an end, though it had a very solid run.

I know.

coming from someone who was 1st introduced to the character through the TT animated show ( she was my fav, of course ), I found her comic counterpart's bio and history a bit convoluted and confusing.

multiple bodies.........different power sets ( from the show )......etc.

so I thought she'd be a character that would actually benefit from the reboot, especially since there were talks she was going to get her own TV series on CW to follow Smallville......

this would have been a good chance to boost her popularity and exposure.....

hopefully she shows up later on........

I thought it was a great series as well really think that its a shame that it ended. I'm hoping that Cornell and Milligan write Xanadu as well as Wagner did

I now kinda feel like I want to pick up Resurrection Man, purely because I'm picking up every other "Dark" book and feel bad about leaving it out.

I might check it out I think

I liked the original Ressurection Man series and the new one looks pretty neat. I think I'll check out the first couple of issues at least
