    I welcome Joe Bennett's arrival as this book's new regular artist because he brings a highly polished style with a solid grasp on the human form and strong ability to deliver a visually exciting action sequences. In one sequence in this issue, Dinah finds herself locked in an elevator with five thugs who are looking to kill her, and not only is her escape well done, but I loved Wildcat's entrance, as he unloads on these hapless goons. The final moments of this issue also build up the big surprise and when that final page hits, that last panel leaves me with a real sense of doubt about whether this is an act, or whether a character is seriously pursuing this troublesome path. I was also quite impressed by Adriana Melo's cover image, though I do have to say that Wildcat looked a little odd without his customary five-o'clock shadow. Still, it's an exciting visual, and the cityscape in the background was rather impressive. Read Full Review
