Zatanna’s struggle against Brother Night forces the Maid of Magic to reach into the darkest places for a mystic edge in battle. But now that she’s fighting as dirty as Night, will Zatanna’s own soul be lost in the process?
The succubus in this issue is not the classical version of one, but is instead a yuki-onna. She is however not portrayed as those beings are in Japanese legends. In this case she acts to seduce men in a nightclub and then drain them. The yuki-onna encounters Zatanna and her cousin, ensnares Zachery in her tentacles, and Zatanna must battle her.
While her human form is highly sexual in nature, being that of a raven haired woman, her true form retains aspects of it, but is nothing like the classical Succubus form or that of a yuki-onna. In the end, the yuki-onna is defeated and vanishes with no explanation.
