We flash back with Wonder Woman and Supergirl to the aftermath of Battle of Britain. On Paradise Island, our two Bombshells struggle with their alienation from mankind and try to heal from the loss of Supergirl’s beloved sister, Stargirl.
As the opening salvo of the three-part "Queens" arc that's getting underway, it serves more as an epilogue to an arc we had a few months ago more than anything else. It helps to get things squared away there so we can get Diana in the current Zambesi arc so that's all good for me in the end. Bennett gets to expound on a few things here in a really engaging way as Kara and Diana talk but it's Bergara's artwork that really elevates it all. The sparser scenes are exactly what it needs as are the way the panels are laid out so that it has a certain starkness and coolness about it that mirrors Kara's grief – especially with how Nanjan shifts gears to color it. It's not a big and bold installment but it's a fantastic character installment, something this series pulls off really well. Read Full Review
