The story waxes a bit philosophical toward the end, touching on matters of death, sacrifice, grief and survival. I don’t mind that, because each of the characters is presented with a unique viewpoint, each ringing true to their nature. Though Black Adams is perhaps a little less so. His reconciliation seems a little weak given his role as a dictator.
I find Sandy Jarrell’s artwork uneven, in that it sometimes features textures and rendering techniques that give it weight and depth, while other times it’s merely a contour drawing, relying on Kelly Fitzpatrick’s colors to add dimension. I have no objection to what might be called the “clear line” style of rendering, but I feel if it drawn flat, it should be colored as such as well. But that’s just my opinion.
I am uncertain where the series will go from here. An allusion is made to other characters within the Bombshell franchise, but that’s not necessarily a promise. Regardless, I hope it’s some place fresh and new, where we can see the Bombshells kick ass, instead of getting bogged down in too much emotional depth.
