What's not to love about Zatanna?
She's got it all!
She has some amazing magic powers. If she can figure how to say it backwards, she can do anything she wants! (Like in Power Girl #23, Zatanna (Zee to her friends) is attacked by a guy using magic who attacks her with thorn-covered ivy, and Zee shouts:
ECOMEB REWOLF SLATEP!
and the dangerous ivy just falls around her because now it's just pretty flower petals.)
And, in the last few years, she was also in a few issues of Detective Comics! There was a two-part story in #833 and #834, and just a few months later, another two-part story in #843 and #844.
She looks pretty good on the interiors of these stories as well, like this page from #843 where Bruce helps her with a trick:
The other story (the two-parter in #843 and #844) is quite a bit better as Zee and Batman take on the gangland ventriloquist's dummy known as Scarface, who has a new partner in crime, a beautiful blonde named Peyton. (Wouldn't you?)
So check it out!
Zatanna is one more reason why we love Detective Comics!
