    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 10, 2019

    This creative team went above and beyond to bring us a spectacular cosmic tale. You never knew what you were truly in store for when it came to this girl, and it helped a lot with the surprise once it came time to reveal her origins. Naomi #6 brought her story full circle in a way that left you wanting more. She is powerful, she is brave, and she reminds you of the sense of wonder in finding out you can do something extraordinary. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 10, 2019

    Naomi now begins to make appearances in other DC comics. Issues end promises a second series. If Walker and Campbell are involved in that next series, it may be well worth checking out. The pulpy space adventure thats being delivered here really needs the kind of expressiveness that Campbell provides for it to feel right. It may have had its slow moments. All in all, however, this is an excellent opening for a new hero. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jul 11, 2019

    I really didnt expect very much from this miniseries when it launched. I certainly didnt expect to grow to care about the character, and be eager for her return. The fact that I am is clear evidence that Bendis and company have achieved their goal. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jul 10, 2019

    Jamal Campbells beautiful art is showcased perfectly in this issue. Everything from the characters to the backgrounds looks amazing and the highlight is seeing the aftermath and devastation of Naomis homeworld. Campbell also makes Zumbado a physically imposing and scary creature to behold. Great art. Read Full Review

    I’ll finish this review with one final tid-bit I noticed: we learn in this issue Naomi’s last name and the moment I read it, I couldn’t help but know that this must be a tribute to a certain creator that passed away a few years ago. And it is a touching tribute at that. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 10, 2019

    Naomi #6 caps off a series too few people are reading. It delivers the magic that Bendis has done before with other characters and combined with Walker's style, creates a first volume that has us excited to see what comes next. Along with art that pops from the page, this is a series that needs to be read and delivers on the excitement of an origin story that seems to be a lost art form. Along with a youthful voice and look, this is one of the best debut volumes of the year and we can't wait for more. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 19, 2019

    Naomi is one of the best origin stories I've read in recent years. Although there's still quite a bit to learn about Naomi, the full range of her powers, and finding a new role as a super-hero, the series ends with infinite possibilities. Thankfully, it doesn't appear we'll have to wait long as DC is apparently taking the Atomic Robo approach to Naomi and releasing her tales in separate mini-series. Naomi 2 is on the way, and I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for her. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ingrid Lind-Jahn Jul 10, 2019

    I think Naomi #6 is a good book. It captures a lot of emotion and tension. It shows us more of what's going on rather than bogging us down in narration. I still get a feeling that there is a whole lot of plot ahead " everyone we have met has a history full of conflict and loose ends. I hope the team can hold it all together without losing focus on our main character. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jul 10, 2019

    The ending feels abrupt, which wouldn't be an issue if there was another issue coming next month. The teaser says Naomi's story continues in the broad "pages of the DC Universe" and Naomi 2. Those subsequent issues might go a long way towards fleshing her out, but for now this season finale didn't do enough to end on a high note. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Jul 10, 2019

    I need more. I know it's a good thing that fans want more, but I can't help feeling like Bendis and Walker could have given us a little more than they did to hold us over until Naomi returns. Oh well, at least we can stare at Jamal Campbell's beautiful and feel more than satisfied by it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 10, 2019

    While I like the character of Naomi, this mini-series seemed more intent on being collectible than actually telling a story.  After being pushed as a series that just might change the DC Universe as we know it, I had high expectations and I'm sad to say, this book did not meet them.  I guess that can happen later, but stringing readers along for six issues just to get started telling a story does not get me excited for the future.

    This has the most badass moments. Naomi rocks! I can't wait for the things that await her especially a potential Superman Naomi team up from Bendis and Campbell.

    And thus concludes the first "season" of Naomi. Trade paperback and hardcover collection to follow.

    This title is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. The writing, at the surface, appears lightweight. I don't entirely mind, because so many books these days try to condense entire sci-fi novels into a few pages of overcrowded text. Naomi appears to be written from her perspective...that of a teen girl, thrown into this crazy world of aliens and super-powers. Everything isn't revealed on one page. As she learns, we learn. That's refreshing.

    The art is masterful. Jamal Campbell blasts light and color through the shadows. Characters are drawn (painted?) in a way that evokes manga but, due to shading, offers a level o more

    This, and Batman: Universe are one of the few series in DC Comics that Brian Michael Bendis is GENUINELY good at.

    I had high hopes for Naomi. She's a decent new character with a ton of potential going forward. Unfortunately, this series turned out to be a mediocre slog to get through. It's also unfortunate that many of the complaints cited in previous issues apply in this instance as well. Naomi's biggest problem is that the series is a One-Short or a 64-page graphic novel stretched into a 6-part mini-series. This may not be a problem for you but reading this series in a serialized format was painful for me.

    Naomi #6 follows her as she encounters Zumado, an entity from her homeworld. They pass through a portal and we get to see her world in its current state which is pretty rough. Things go from bad to worse as it's revealed that Zumado is more

    "What was your name again?"

    Now that's what I call a satisfying conclusion.

    We had a proper buildup, introduction to the main characters, their backstories and their secrets.
    And now, we got a great ending to the first arc with a really good showdown with the "big and scary" villain and some sweet family moments.
    All that is given to us with a stellar artwork form Jamal Campbell. That man can draw.

    Can't wait to see Naomi join Young Justice. I'm ready to see more of what she can do.

    It’s hard to follow. I don’t mean the overall story, I mean each panel and the dialogue. It’s choppy, hyperactive. It sounds like a 40 year old trying to write teenage dialogue. But it’s like, like OMG!, so hard to follow. The art is fantastic, I really like it for the big splash pages as well as the little details like the reflections in Naomi’s eyes. I didn’t get why Naomi and Zumbado were having friendly, heart to heart, helpful tips conversation. Was he trying to turn her to the dark side?

    Weakest issue of the series. Wasn't bad but the conclusion really was too easy. Campbell is the MVP here ( has been since the beginning ). Naomi still is a great adittion to the DC universe and i hope we will see more of her soon

    I just don't care about this character. She's not that interesting and I thought this was a very underwhelming finale.
