Out of all the new 52 line ups, I'd say this is one of the titles I'm enjoying the most. Even before the timeline reset, anything to do with Magic in the DCU was always something I jumped at. Was basically a whore for it. And, yeah, Zatanna remains my favorite character, even loved seeing her brought into the Vertigo universe way back when to be John's love interest, albeit a much darker version. Think JLD portrays them as a good mix of both interpretations from the original DCU and the Vertigo Universe. Have to admit, kind of miss Z's original outfit.
