I enjoyed this
issue much more than the last. The distrust struck an emotional chord we
experience in our real lives as we daily face people who think differently from
us, forcing us to question not only their motives, but our own judgment.
I have long believed that the DC Universe could benefit from a shake-up of dancing partners, as heroes and villains trade places among one another. Batman pitted against Lex Luthor’s billionaire industrialist genius. Green Lantern vs. Doctor Light. Wonder Woman vs. Clayface is a far less obvious pairing, but Marguerite Bennett makes it work.
Marguerite Sauvage’s artwork is well-suited for the subject matter at hand. My only complaint is that she sometimes renders the women almost as teenage girls. Dawnstar’s cosmic revelations on pages 8-9 seem especially made for the tween audience.But perhaps, that’s the tone Sauvage picks up from Bennett’s dialogue.
