CBR Review: Justice League Dark #5

I recently reviewed Justice League Dark #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The conclusion to 'In the Dark,' the opening story of Justice League Dark, is surprising in the way that it subverts the usual concepts of heroism and team-building. By this point in the ‘origin story’ of a superhero team, the members will have united to fight their common threat and, once defeating it, realize that this little team they’ve formed is pretty great and should continue. That doesn’t happen here. Instead, what we get is the singular triumph of one man despite the best efforts of his supposed teammates and a splintered group of individuals who want nothing to do with one another. It is both an impressive feat to pull off and the logical endpoint (or, jumping off point perhaps?) of this series."
