With only one issue left in Terry Moore and Craig Rousseau’s arc, I have come to accept Moore has planned for more than what can be done in these five issues. It is now at the point if Moore decides to wrap up this entire arc and all its threads in a single issue, it will be disappointing. But it also leaves me with a sense of longing, it was over a year between Sean McKeever leaving the series and Moore pumping out the first issue and I fear there may be that much time between this and the next writer to take up the mantle, if anyone does at all. Hopefully it can continue, this little series about Mary-Jane’s high school life is so very endearing and well written for a teenage drama.
Craig Rousseau’s artistic contributions for this series are great. His characters are expressive and communicative without becoming overly cartoonish. He does have characters whose necks are strangely thin, causing a lot of his characters to look like bobble heads. But Rousseau’s art synchronizes with the script because of his ability to communicate emotion.
7/10 Hopefully Moore will continue. If not, this series would be lucky to have someone just as talented.
