Wow, this volume really steps it up from the previous collection, which was not bad but had a lot of ideas and characters that were not fully utilized. That changes here.
The first three issues are good and are a transitionary period as DC co-Publisher Dan Didio backs off scripting the series to just providing plot, while comics legend J. M. DeMatteis takes over scripting. These issues focus on The Phantom Stranger looking for who killed his adopted mortal family under the guise of Phillip Stark. He has the aid of fantasy and magic expert Dr. Terrance Thirteen, while he is being threatened to betray the Stranger by another member of the Trinity of Sin. The trail leads the Stranger to a casino run by Trigon's sons, to the inevitable by Dr. Thirteen, and to the realm of Non where he meets the Sin Eater, the entity responsible for his families fate and who holds a shocker of a secret that jumps this series up a notch. After the Stranger is wounded he finds himself at the mercy of the Justice League Dark who want to help the Stranger but in doing so unleash the help of another odd and intriguing character, The Nightmare Nurse. Issues 6 and 7 of this stretch are done by Gene Ha with his wonderful smooth style. Issue 8 is done by Philip Tan who has a more murky style fitted for this book.
With issues 9-11 DeMatteis takes over full writing duties and the series gets a regular artist in Fernando Blanco who has a simple and noirish style. Issues 9 and 10 deal with The Stranger's quest into the afterlife to save the innocent family that the Sin Eater doomed. The Stranger braves Hell and Heaven, and meets the New 52 version of Zauriel along the way, as his quest for a higher level of justice proves to be not what he expected.Read more ›
