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 #2 written by David F. Walker, and Brian Michael Bendis and art by Jamal Campbell.
I really enjoyed the start of this new title. I love the mystery and the desire to belong to something greater. I think that those are both great themes that are played with perfectly here. Naomi is a really interesting character and I can’t help but sit at the edge of my seat whilst reading this because I desperately desire to find out who her parents are and where do they come from. (Although we have a clue after this issue). Speaking of this issue, let’s get to the review!
Wow! This had a lot. We got some great vibes from Naomi and her family as well as some mystery to the town. No one seems to know about that incident that rocked the small town years ago except for the mechanic. We also get a lot of great character development with Naomi because we are seeing just how hard she is trying to solve this and her desire to belong to something more. I also love how determined she is and how real she feels. Honestly, this feels similar to when Bendis created Miles Morales in the Ultimate universe. And that is a great thing because she has all of that character and potential to be one of the most real characters at DC. And the art is incredible. I love what Jamal Campbell is doing here.
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?)
Total: 18.5 / 20
