After reading the first six issues however, while not perfect, I was pleasantly surprised.
First of all, props to David Baldeon’s art, which was a perfect choice for the action sequences throughout. I also really appreciate the fact that Baldeon is able to get his character to emote properly, giving them a range larger than a dozen variations of grimacing. I know some might be turned off by some of the more cartoonish reactions, but thankfully Baldeon is able to keep it reigned in and not become a sloppy mess.
Gail Simone’s writing was enjoyable as well, although I do admit I began to lose interest in the second half of this book. The first half begins with a pretty solid mystery and a new mystery villain (plus I must admit I enjoyed seeing Diamondback again, whom I hadn’t seen in ages), but by the second half the villain feels like they became an afterthought and the way that situation is resolved is rather lacking. Domino herself also goes through a kind of weird personality shift as well. In the first half she’s got her familiar swagger to her, but due to previously mentioned villain and mystery, is feeling a bit out of her depth. This could have a lot of impact, but by the second half, it just feels like a reheated attempt to pull off a “find my inner strength” moment you’d see in some Shonen book. It’s not bad, but it didn’t feel like it had any real gravity to it.
I will probably be picking up Volume two whenever it goes on sale. Thanks for the entertaining read.
My favorite scene was when Domino got mad, saying, "I'm a Disney princess!" I won't ruin the rest of that scene.
