    Word Of The Nerd - Edward Wendt Oct 9, 2019

    The story in Livewire #11 ends up working and relatively well because of the mature handling of the story. There have been many cases of heroes put under scrutiny in the past, but it seems to fit better here than elsewhere. Livewire holds herself together pretty well under this duress, even as others are trying to manipulate her. It also helps that Valiant has a smaller footprint in superhero stories than other companies. It is hard to imagine the public turning on the Flash or the Fantastic Four. As a result, it seems a bit more real here. This works out to tell a better story, and the strong showing from the art team solidifies it all. Read Full Review

    The long and short of it is this is a bittersweet issue, while on one hand I'm excited to see how Ayala wraps up an amazing run on Livewire I can't say I'm in a rush for it to be over. This issue does an amazing job setting up what promises to be a fitting grand finale though so if you weren't pumped for #12 going into this one I would check your pulse if you aren't now.

    Livewire #11 is, on the whole, a really solid comic with an interesting angle on the way politicians and public figures manipulate the general public's perception and thoughts. Read Full Review

    One of the most exciting things about Vita Ayala's writing/plot for this book is that it is almost impossible to anticipate where it will go next. How will Livewire ever be considered a hero given the terror she has inflicted on her world? What is the secret agenda of Gwen and Councilman Wright? And given her abilities, what's to stop Livewire from simply imposing her will on her tech-controlled world and reshaping it into whatever she wants it to be. As Livewire's path to redemption continues, readers and fans will simply have to keep reading to figure it all out. Read Full Review
