Is it possible to enjoy a comic as you would an action movie, not paying a lot of attention to the plot? For me it is if it’s drawn by George Perez. The two heroine partners of this book spend much of it battling a glowing, perhaps radioactive guy in a metal power suit (or is it a robot?). George does this sort of thing better than anyone, and I love the ride he takes me on. There’s a flashback interlude drawn by Kevin Maguire that’s quite good, too. These two characters are from another reality, and still somewhat in the dark themselves about how they got here, so I don’t feel too bad that I’m not following the Earth 2 storyline where more things might be revealed. Writer Paul Levitz is keeping me entertained enough on a script level that I can gloss over some details and still have a fine time.
A page of wonderful action by George Perez.
