Though I didn’t dislike Perez’s fill-in last month, I’m glad that Asrar’s back on art. He’s just…so good.
The battle against the Black Banshee kicks in to full gear, his magical nature making him a foe unlike what Kara’s faced yet. Her new friend, Siobhan – the Silver Banshee – is on her side, but the Black Banshee’s no pushover. Not at all.
This issue’s mostly action – very good-looking action – but there’s also maybe some groundwork being laid for future character stuff, for Siobhan and Kara alike. I rather hope Siobhan survives this whole thing and sticks around. Kara deserves a friend at this point.
The Black Banshee’s a less cosmic foe than the Worldkillers, though no less hard-hitting, and he seems a good follow-up to those foes. With Kara so new to her godlike abilities on Earth, it’s worthwhile to demonstrate that she has limitations, but at least until she learns how to speak (or at least understand) English, an enemy like Luthor is probably not going to work.
And did I mention I’m really glad Asrar’s back? I did, didn’t I? Well, it’s worth saying a second time.
