    Teenage Wasteland cuts to the core conflicts of vigilantism with compelling eloquence. The craftsmanship and artistry behind this story is superb. I eagerly await the rest of this storyarc; although I cant see how Simone is going to top this issue. My recommendation for this issue would exceed five bullets, but thats the maximum that we can give here at SBC. Read Full Review

    Joe Prado brings a rougher looking style to this book, but Ed Benes' finishes serve to tighten up the work quite a bit, and the finished product is actually quite impressive. The most important element of this issue is the art's ability to capture the rather diverse array of powers that the young woman can draw upon, and art does a pretty effective job of making it pretty easy to follow what's happening on the page, with the murder attempt using the floating car being particularly effective. The scene where the Black Canary destroys the car is also quite impressive, as is the battle in the final pages as Dinah faces off against the power of Shazam. I do have to say I was a little disappointed by this issue's cover image though, as Greg Land presence on the previous issues had set the bar pretty high, and Jason Pearson's cover comes across looking like a second rate imitation of Chris Bachalo.
