At the midway point in the series, we see the battle between the evil Trigon and his daughter Raven. He had been seeking greater understanding in how this one child of his could survive, but as her resistance to his demonic powers grow, his one desire is to crush her completely.

 

Observing the battle in a nether-worldly manner is Baron Winters, who begins to see Raven’s growing powers as a worthy addition to his Night Force. But whether Raven would be willing to ally herself with such a manipulative being is doubtful.

 

After six issues, I can’t say I am particularly impressed by the artwork of Pop Mhan. It seems overly simplistic in this modern era of comic book illustration. Perhaps 30 or 40 years ago, it may have been otherwise, with Mhan being a contemporary of Don Heck or Alex Saviuk. But today it comes across as somewhat bland and uninteresting. Pity, that.

 

But all is not over yet, as future issue promise another supernatural threat for Raven to challenge. I would expect it to relate in some manner with the story arc that just concluded (otherwise, why not two six-issue series?), but in what way is cause for speculation.

 

Rating: 5/10
