Spoiler Discussion to Follow
I feel as though there is a lot to discuss. I like that they’re going to different places as it is their responsibility to protect their sector. I like that the other characters have a connection to Abin Sur. It’s also interesting to see them struggle to save a race.
The art is an improvement as I said previously with Jessica Cruz’s design the only thing that really throws me off. It could be a lighting issue, but I hope that’s the only reason. I’m very much surprised by the constructs that she’s pulling off now, like the Wonder Woman one. The coloring just adds vibrancy that felt lacking in the last few issues.
The events that lead up to the job suggestion are entertaining. For Jessica, it’s with regards to her own growth and how she seems to be managing her anxiety. For Simon, it’s to earn his keep with his sister. I don’t know how things will turn out for them in the next issue, but I think it could be told in a realistic, but humorous way. I’ll take Jessica Cruz as my waitress any day.
There was a moment where the two interact before diving into magma that felt kinda weird. On one hand, Simon shows his concern and Jessica goes into what feels like an episode but becomes an act. I think its essential to remind people that they’re still learning to work with each other. I was relieved that Jessica wasn’t having a breakdown.
Finally, I know very little about this alien race and this Ungarians. But that song sure had some heart to it. I wonder what it will lead to and will they face failure?
I’m telling myself to treat this is an extension rather than a much needed switch. I liked what Humphries did and I believe that Tim Seeley can continue to make it one of my favorite series since I like Nightwing already.
