So #17 has come about, and Raven is in it...briefly, but she speaks this time.
Obviously with all the Trigon-time she's had, I know she is going to be different in the beginning. But to be honest it neither sounds, looks or 'feels' like the Raven we knew.
Like when Krul started his run in #88 I almost immediately felt he understood how to write her dialogue (which is normally short) helped along by Nicola Scott's art.
This time however, her first line of spoken words is a threat aimed at a minion. But...see for yourselves:
Honestly I think things could be worse, but still...eh, cup of blood and a throne of skulls for the half-demon...isn't that kinda 'by the book'?
Costume still looks like rubbish...actually it might even have gotten worse with the 'feathers' that's making up the cape.
On the plus side (if we can call it that) it seems it is 'her' that's in charge of her mind and that she is playing a game of some sort.
(And in case you were wondering; despite creeping insanity, it seems Tim is the playa of the Titans)
