Naomi #1-6 - Review

Naomi is a new character co-created by Brian Michael Bendis, David Walker, and Jamal Campbell under the Wonder Comics imprint for DC Comics. Wonder Comics is Bendis’s curated imprint. The events that happen in Wonder Comics are in continuity with the rest of the DC Universe. The tone of these books is lighter than the mainstream DCU books, but the events that happen are no less important. The titular character, Naomi, is an adopted girl who lives in a quiet Pacific Northwestern town where not much happens, until a chance moment where Superman appears briefly mid-fight with Mongul.

Far Sector #1- Review

N.K. Jemisin sets up a compelling story right away by introducing a new character, Green Lantern Sojourner Mullein, in a sector of space that is the farthest away from anything we have ever seen. On page one, Jemisin dumps us immediately into a murder mystery in a world that hasn’t had a murder in over 500 years. This results in a solid issue that does a lot to world build and sucks the reader in without wasting pages on an origin story. At some point, I can imagine we will learn more about how Mullein became a Lantern.
