Dead Acrobat

"Dead Acrobat" from Justice League Dark #13 (DC, 2012) by Jeff Lemire, Mikel Janin and Victor Drujiniu
The "Justice League" brand doesn't quite fit its characters, but in the JLDark, Jeff Lemire has turned an intriguing Milligan book into a fun minor hit. He seems intent on the cramming as many magic-related DC characters into its pages as possible, in strange and daring combinations. He's brought back Tim Hunter and Black Orchid, made John Constantine fly around creation in the House of Mystery (yes, it IS bigger on the inside), and even brought Frankenstein back from cancellation limbo. Amethyst in a Justice League? Bring her on! And the art is quite pretty too.
