Constantine doesn't pay very close attention to the news does he?
Shouldn't he know who batman's financial backer is since that's public knowledge?
Minor nitpick aside, highly enjoyable issue.
I love this comic. Been getting it since Lemire started. Each issue is just packed with great action, great art, great characters and great dialogue. It's never boring. Also, the art in this issue was really good courtesy of Graham Nolan, and I'd love to see him on another title regularly.
I seriously miss Captain Mar-Vell.
Loved the issue this week.

I loved this issue. This book continues to be lots of fun and completely interesting. I was a little concerned when I saw the art team wasn't Janin, but they did a fantastic job and didn't change the flavor of the book at all.
I was excited when I saw Lemire was re-introducing the Black Orchid and I am more and more intrigued by her with every issue. I'm wondering if the mirror image Amaya saw was just something to do with the room or something more to do with Orchid (since Frank was also a skeleton and Amaya wasn't...is the Orchid actually alive?) I would love to see an arc about her in DCU Presents sometime.
Not all who wander are lost....
This was a fun issue. Was pleasantly surprised that Graham Nolan was on art--always a treat.
Based on this issue, I'm pretty much convinced that anyone can hear Deadman. I'd already more or less assumed it based on previous exchanges, but it seems fairly obvious here. In a way, it makes sense. People claim to be able to hear ghosts or disembodied voices in reality, so it stands to reason that such a thing could also be true in the DC universe. People can hear him, but not necessarily see him.
I thought it was a pretty fun issue. The little misadventure with Frankenstein, Amethyst, and Black Orchid was funny and also provided some good insight into the story. I would love to see Frankenstein as a permanent member. There is a lot going on in Constantine's conversations that points to stuff on the way. So we get cool adventure with set up. It was pretty well done. A lot of books really stall in the set up phase. This one is keeping a lot of balls in the air.

Just read it! It was really good! IMO #13 and the annual had one or two dialogue problems, but they were gone here. Good to see that Lemire keeps writing a good Frankenstein. Also with this issue I srat to like Orchid. Hope she stays on the team even after the next arc and keeps being developed by Lemire. The art was good for a fill-in but only a select few can beat Janin, so I wait for his return in the next issue.
I've seen MUCH better from JLD. I hope that the next arc returns to it's dark roots from Milligan. That's where the book REALLY shines IMO. It's gotten too Indiana Jones. And Trinity War buildup! This makes me think that it will be the 3 teams against one another. The Question on JL, Pandora on JLA and Phantom on JLD. I think the first 2 will be where I said since it's quite possible The Question hijacked Brother Eye and the JLI is government run, like the JLA will be. The JL will then deny helping Pandora open the box, but knowing the government, they say "Sure! As long as we benefit!" Box opens and Trinity War begins.
