No other choice
There is maybe nothing extremely exceptional about this series on its service in such issues, but everything works together in such a polished and smooth way that the stories become near perfection. One of the main factors in that for my (somewhat biased) outlook is that Johns excels at writing strong female characters, and now there is not only Mera but also Ya’wara here. That there is so much going on in this issue is not detracting from the overall effect, in fact it adds to it as there is a fair amount of action, drama and suspense. The plot is driving the main hero against his arch-nemesis, but it is doing it in such an entertaining way, that it doesn’t feel like any resolution is needed any time soon.
