Welcome back, sorry that I have missed a few, but we are back to reviewing comics every day! Today, Seppin is going to be reviewing Naomi #1 written by David F. Walker, and Brian Michael Bendis and art by Jamal Campbell.
Yet another one of Bendis’ passion projects has come out and I want to review it because I love Brian Michael Bendis’ writing. When I heard that Bendis was going to launch Wonder Comics, I instantly became interested in this girl, Naomi. She isn’t a previous character from DC getting a new title or something that Bendis had written before. She is a completely new character that is interesting and is a part of a compelling story. Talking about the story, let’s get to the review.
I love this book already. It has just the right amount of connection to the DC Universe, but it also has the character that I know to expect from Bendis’ writing. Naomi is an interesting character that is looking for belonging because she is an orphan. Naturally, she looks up to Superman and desires to be a part of that incredible world. I love her character and I am super interested to learn more about her family because we know nothing right now. I also love the small town aesthetic because it adds intrigue and is realistic. The art is perfect to match the writing, it all just blends together astonishingly.
Overall, I love this new title and I can’t wait to see where it goes.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
