Sonny Liew’s art is a bit of a misstep for me. The character design seems quirky in a way where I’m thinking everyone is cracking a joke every time they speak. Liew is also trying to stay on the Young Animal brand by making the lead Caroline/Chrysalis character look like a teenager-she’s apparently 35. There is a well-written stand up comedian character that looks like a crummy version of Edna Mode from the Incredibles that just slowly grates on you and sabotages the complex emotional weight that Visaggio has slyly crafted.
What makes the stand up comedian’s contribution important is how it sets up the disdain and resentment our protagonist feels toward having an unwanted role model thrust upon you. Visaggio pulls off a very tricky act of accurately portraying the many levels of mental health and how it affects those exposed to someone who’s depressed and their need to fix those who are suffering from it. I haven’t read DC comics regularly in a long while but I have been constantly pleasantly surprised by how much they are letting their creators write about issues that had seemed taboo for a mainstream comic not that long ago.
