    Overall, I think it was a great first issue for Josh Williamson. I hope people give this title a chance with the new writer. It seems that Williamson is going to breathe some new life into this book and it's obvious by the issue cliffhanger that he's not afraid to take chances with the book. If you've dropped the book, at least pick this issue up and see if the cliffhanger intrigues you enough to pick up the book again. Read Full Review

    On the plus side, Sami Basri is still around to render Voodoo's adventures, so the book is very consistent in that regard. This is easily Basri's strongest issue so far, as Voodoo spends plenty of time battling an otherworldly foe and flexing the limits of her powers. Voodoo is an extremely pretty book. Almost too pretty and smooth, but pretty nonetheless. Read Full Review

    This book feels like it will have a lot more WildCATS influence, and it will be interesting to see how much. I am curious to discover what kind of a direction Williamson takes the character and how far he goes with her. How much of her character in this series will change? The final fight towards the end of the issue also left me with a few questions. For example, what is the relationship between the Daemonites and former WildCAT, Grifter? Read Full Review

    The idea for this book " that of a hybrid human-alien spy running around the country gathering intel to send to the big bad aliens back home -- is a compelling one. However, the three issues I've read have just not been very interesting. It's disappointing to see one of the few books with a female lead suffering from creative team upheaval and low sales, but the concept thus far doesn't seem to work as executed. Read Full Review

    Voodoo no longer has the sexiness, suspense and mystery that made its first four issues interesting reads. This is an issue sorely lacking in all three qualities, and characters barely even approach being three-dimensional. The nicest way to describe it is probably utilitarian. The story is more concerned with wrapping and setting things up as DC wants them than, frankly, being a good story. Hopefully, this issue has done the job and Williamson will have the skill to kick it into high gear next issue. Otherwise, it's a safe bet that you will see Voodoo among the next wave of DC cancellations. Read Full Review
