Justice League Dark – The Last Age of Magic | Comics

Wonder Woman rallies up Detective Chimp, Man-Bat, Swamp Thing and Zatanna to reform Justice League Dark to stop The Otherkind.

During one of her stage shows, Zatanna accidentally unleashes a bunch of mystical creatures from her hat that started attacking people in audience and she was able to avert a major crisis only for the timely intervention of Wonder Woman. Diana came checking on her for not returning her calls ever since they came back from Colu.

Zatanna tries to burn them with her spell but it fires back at her and though it appears that magic is broken, she denies joining Diana. Shortly afterwards, when she came to attend an emergency meeting at Wintersgate Manor, John Constantine came to see her about that incident prior and suggested that she gets help.

Inside the manor, Jason Blood arranged a meeting of prominent magic users like Klarion the Witch Boy, Madame Xanadu and Morgaine le Fey to discuss an oncoming change. As he explains how a tear in Source Wall allowed access to some entity to step into this universe, Zee notices a small plant is eavesdropping on them.

Following its trail, she reaches to Tree of Wonder to find Swamp Thing sitting next to it and starts lashing out at him for doing absolutely nothing being a guardian of green. He believes keeping this problem in shadows like Jason Blood is not a good idea nor is forming Justice League Dark to punch it into light is the correct way.

Failing to find answers, Zatanna wished to talk to Tree of Wonder and she has a chance to see spirit of her deceased father Zatara who warns her of The Otherkind and arrival of Upside-Down Man. Showing her a glimpse of what is coming, he reveals that one of them is powerful enough to fight back this crisis and urges her to find them.

Diana sits disappointed at Oblivion Bar beside Detective Chimp, wondering why every magical hero she approached to join her team has declined her so far. In the wake of a series of gruesome death of ordinary magic users lately, Wonder Woman realizes some powerful force is at work here and so, she kept looking for recruits.

Bobo also expresses his dilemma of being new "Nightmaster" for possession of Sword of Night, which makes him a defender of magical realm Myrra, now that his friend Jame Rook is no more. He offers his help investigating her murder mystery and they head to Hall of Justice, where Bobo Chimpanzee met former Batman villain, Man-Bat.

Diana recruited Kirk Langstrom to study the mutated cadavers from A.R.G.U.S. and suddenly, they start coming back to life. She told Langstrom to fly out with Bobo immediately but cavalry arrived in form of Swamp Thing and Zatanna. After regrouping, Zee suggests that they go visit Tower of Fate seeking answers from Doctor Fate.

Alec Holland stayed outside and Constantine came to see him regarding an approaching danger that they both feel coming. Once inside, Zatanna wishes to speak to original lord of order, Nabu and Fate agrees to arrange that but kept Bobo and Kirk out.

Langstrom accidentally breaks an artifact that gives away a dark secret about Fate which Diana and Zee feels too. Only then, they realize that it was Nabu himself who was posing as Kent all along. He admits of summoning The Otherkind to this world before leaving them in dark, from which crawls out the dreaded Upside-Down Man.

Batgirl – Year One | Comics

Young Barbara Gordon went from police Captain James Gordon's daughter to costumed vigilante hero Batgirl!

Barbara Gordon is a college graduate who is a computer-genius and after completing her college, she now wants to join the Gotham City Police Department following the footprints of her father Captain James Gordon. After being refused to be a detective she tries to enlist herself to FBI but she got rejected again for her lack of height and younger age.

Batgirl – Year One | Comics

Seeing traditional means of crime-fighting opportunities as an off-limit for her, she took inspiration from the costumed vigilantes and managed to send a message to Justice Society of America's member Black Canary regarding her wish to be a sidekick but ended up receiving a negative response from her mentor Wildcat.

Deeply sorrowed by all the dead-ends of her dreams, she locked herself up in home and to console his daughter, Jim Gordon invites her to a masquerade ball. Thinking this as an opportunity she showed up in the ball in an altered version of Batman’s costume, unbeknown to her father.

Her appearance as well as the ongoing party is soon interrupted by a bankrupt ex-millionaire turned second-string super-villain named Killer Moth, who wants to kidnap one of Gotham’s elite; Bruce Wayne for ransom but fails due to Barbara’s intervention. With Barbara on his tail, a running Killer Moth dubs her ‘Batgirl’ as Batman and Robin arrives at the scene. As she continued her vigilantism, a suspicion came to her father’s mind and she received aid from the dynamic duo.
