Justice League Dark, Vol. 1: In the Dark - Peter Milligan, Mikel Janin, Ryan Sook

I really want to like JLD. It's got Zatanna, one of my favorite DC characters, and a rather watered-down version of John Constantine; it's got a team of magic users; the potential for plenty of actual dark storylines. Sadly, this isn't it. An entertaining but not particularly meaty read, goes to quick and with too little story, with the characters I know almost alarmingly out of character. I've heard it got better after Milligin left; I'm really hoping this is true and look forward to the second volume! Saying all that, Deadman is fantastic.
