    This issue continues Jeremy Whitley's story involving Nadia and her Bipolar Disorder. It's a sensitive subject that is handled with knowledge and care and if you suffer or know someone who suffers from Bipolar, I think you'll agree. It's not pretty (actually it is thanks to Gurihiru's art) or easy, but that's part of the reason it's so good. Read Full Review

    In his follow up to last issue's game-changing plot, Whitley keeps the momentum going in a very personal message about mental health. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 21, 2019

    The entire ensemble is closer at the end of the issue. Its a very endearing chapter. Its easy to get lost in clashing personalities and competing problems in a big superhero ensemble. Its nice to see everyone pull together in an issue like this. In its own way its kind of inspiring. Rarely is this much focus put on a superheros emotional support network. Read Full Review

    Unstoppable Wasp takes a very interesting approach to bipolar disorder, a mental disorder often stigmatized and misrepresented in media. Read Full Review

    This issue was pretty good. There's some stuff in here that I can relate to, at least, and I want to give the issue a higher score because of that, but there's still something that's not putting this title over the edge for me. It has something to do with the side characters, they were all introduced as very one-note. And they haven't yet gotten much depth, so some of the scenes here don't hit like they should.

    I love the way that they’re exploring Nadia’s mental health but it all feels just a little too... simple? And her supporting cast is so nothing, I wish there was just a little more something.
