Look for me here
This is a hard series from first glance to get interested in. It is not so much that the character is not endearing – it is that she is too endearing. The writer seems to be holding nothing back from the “bad girl” persona template. This is even pretty visible on the first page as a well-drawn panel shows only her hand with tattoos and tiger print fingernails. With this established as a pattern the character more or less stays within these parameters. I understand that the writer is trying something different here and that likely the character will undergo some development to be more of a hero after she has discovered her powers, but this shallow approach is evident throughout, for instance with another one of the old standbys – treating prostitutes like punching bags. The end result is that the main character is endearing enough but that she is working within the confines of a weak surrounding. I will probably have a look at issue 2 to see if it gets any better, but this is likely not a long lived series.
