[DC Comics, 6]

Jeffery Simpson:
As Zatanna prepares to join the Justice League Dark as a kind of punky biker chick, it’s time to say goodbye to her short-lived solo series.  Having launched with Paul Dini as the writer, it ends with Adam Beechen.  Though he’s no Dini, Beechen has done a good job of finding things for Zatanna to do.  The book however has suffered from a lack of convincing, or even interesting villains, and this issue is no different. It’s good when it’s focusing on the various aspects of Zatanna’s life, and the ways that she utilizes her powers on a day-to-day basis. Granted this is a last issue, and probably not a planned one, but I’d like to see a better send-off for one of DC’s most interesting characters.
