Zatanna in Art

Zatanna is another DC heroine I can't keep out of my mind. I haven't seen her in story arcs during my brief encounters with DC series, but I do know that I like her. She has been created in 1964 and is rumored to be one of the most powerful members in the Justice Leagues with magic abilities without a set limit. Her spells have a wide range from elemental, to healing, to psychic and beyond. I don't like how she casts her spells, because saying commands in backwards doesn't suspend my disbelief and does not add credibility. However, we have a woman with fishnets, a top hat and a wand, wielding unlimited power and a cheeky grin. What is there not to like?

I don't know this one but she sounds v.cool.

Emma: I fell in love with that piece as well.

Adele: I know... I gather she should be an active DC character and well, she isn't or at least I haven't come across her much.

I wish DC would use her in more comics as well. I did enjoy a one shot that came out years ago which Rick Mays did the art on. I must have come out between 5 to 10 years ago so it may be hard for one to come across now. Sorry I can't remember the writer's name.

Mhm, DC seems to neglect a power house of a character. Even in the Justice League Unlimited Zatanna had a small, almost insignificant cameo.
