Meanwhile in the skies above, Miri Marvel has come looking for Bat Woman, and falls into a trap laid by Black Adam. The fact that they share the common heritage of the wizard Shazam only makes the snare more potent. How can three mortal women stand against the might of Black Adam?
I started off this issue a wee bit confused. It says #11 on the cover, but last issue was #9, so I don’t know what happened to #10. The chapters seem to read consistently, so I assume it’s an editorial error.
But other than the re-introduction of Miri Marvel, little has changed since last issue. I’m amazed it took 21 pages to tell this story. It’s a common observation with modern comics. The amount they cost, I expect a more compact story – dense with action and drama.
The art by Mirka Andolfo and David Hahn for this issue is somewhat weak as well. The first portion of the book is fine, but in the second half, the work seems very flat and stiff. I can appreciate its simplicity, but the figures seem to have a rigidity that I can’t get past.
