    The end of the Enlistment arc works well with what it brings together here and it puts it in an interesting place. While the opening salvo for Diana's arc felt very familiar and hewed close to the origins in a general sense from what we've always had, it's expanded upon it well, utilized Mera in a decent way that has me hopeful for a bigger role for her, and it's gotten her out into the world with a strong sense of motivations. This issue works very well in firming up the bond with Trevor and it sets into motion her becoming one of the Bombshells under Waller. Bennett continues to largely nail the script here in both big and small ways and the return of Laura Braga is quite welcome as she really captures a great sense of all three main characters here, giving them all more than enough to be well realized and interesting visually as they move through this world.

    The mix of characters who are heavily featured in this book work really well together. Even though Wonder Woman is off fighting her own battle against the Baroness, the scene provides information and action relevant to the rise of the Tenebrae, linking what might seem like disparate events. Bennett has also seamlessly created an organic tie between Supergirl, Stargirl, and Mera that will now doubt strengthen their friendship going forward, even as secrets about each of them are slowly being revealed. This book may not have the epic gravitas of Injustice when it began its run, but it's full of great old-fashioned comic book action with an endless splash of classic characters. Read Full Review

    This issue is at least more visually cohesive than most, though neither artist quite captures the distinctive power and energy of the original Bombshells character designs. Read Full Review

    Finally, we see a story that fits Wonder Woman and gives her a fight that she deserves. She is challenged by the Baroness and it is a fight that really showcases the character we know and love. After this part, it is clear that the Baroness was a wonderful choice for a villain here. I especially enjoyed the shared narration between Diana and Baroness regarding the Tenebrae, illustrating that they have shared experiences. And how glad I am that Steve Trevor is pulling his weight and actually doing something instead of just playing the victim. Its about time! Read Full Review
