Okay, the intro to this comic with Dustin Nguyen’s little mini, chibi, cute whatevers is adorable. However, I found it a little off putting that Stephanie and Oracle would be so open to letting Proxy in on the Bat-Family’s secrets.
Nevertheless, after the beginning I was hooked. Plus, I was just really pumped for Dustin Nguyen taking over art duties.
…But, something happened…
The comic wasn’t actually all that good.
Sure, we had Stephanie’s idiosyncratic quips that are usually cute and chuckle-worthy… yet they just didn’t seem as good this time around. And, the overall plot just wasn’t that creative. It was the typical “OMG THE HERO’S BEEN SET UP AS A VILLAIN!!!” that we’ve seen dozens of times before.
On top of that, the art wasn’t that great. Sure, it had Dustin’s charismatic expression, but it just didn’t do that much for me.
Overall, I walked away from this comic a little disappointed that it was mediocre. Sure, I’ll keep on coming back to this issue because when it works, it really works. But, the last couple of issues just haven’t seemed as great as before. I think it’s about time Stephanie got a serious batch of Rogues Gallery-abled villains… that don’t do the typical bait and switch.
