    I'm more than willing to admit that most of my disappointment with this issue stems from the simple fact that the book has decided to focus most of its energies on a overly familiar question, rather than the one that I consider to be infinitely more engaging. Now yes the idea of a science hero taking a ruthless stranglehold around the neck of the criminal community could make for an interesting time, but I have to ask why use a cast of science heroes who have been trapped in stasis for the better part of two decades if this premise is going to play such a seemingly small role in the material. It also doesn't help matters much that the hero who has gone too far is being so open about his criminal acts, as it's a bit difficult to accept the idea that the public would embrace a crime free city when the person responsible was openly vaporizing people in full view of witnesses.

    Terra Obscura isn't without total merit. Yanick Paquette, Karl Story and Jeromy Cox do a splendid job of rendering the panels. Miss Masque and Carol look powerful and confident. This contrasts the fact that neither of them has a clue and are apparently inept weaklings. The illustrations of Miss Masque's more pleasant emotions when the girls catch up in a diner are particularly evocative. However, excellent artwork like boobies will only take you so far.
