The current story arc involves a mesmerizing piece of music being broadcast around the world, turning its listeners into stoned-out zombies. The source of the music is revealed here, and the means to combat it. I don’t regret sharing the solution is another form of music, which leads to the Bombshells singing in unison.
Which brings me to my biggest complaint: comic books are a visual medium. Music is not, so presenting a song in comic book form is ineffective. It’s like featuring a silent film on radio – whatever the message may be is entirely lost. Several pages are presented here featuring the words to a song I have no interest in reading.
Bennett may be a great writer, but I do not agree that comic books are her forte. Novels, poems perhaps songs, may be the key to her success, and I wish her well in those endeavors. But more than that, I wish an experienced comic book writer mentor her. But kudos to DC for putting her on a title whose limited appeal suits her limited abilities.
