This issue is nearly flawless and a must read, especially for many who have been detractors of this whole Krakoa story.

Redundant, without news or action. A romance that is not romance and a comic that seems more like a soap opera. DC is betting a lot on the love of the fans here, but is not giving anything in return.

The art varies from incredibly strong to kind of awkward when faces are involved. Ultimately that doesn't do any damage to the story, which is unsettling in its own right. The art fits and the colors are vibrant.

Narratively the story is one of the best so far. I dearly love the slow built-up in #13 that sadly falls short once the story continues in #14.

The emotional depth comes across nicely in the case of Nina/Natalia Close. Sadly, the same can't be quite said for Wonder Woman. Often Anwar falls back on a heroic pose or smile instead of more
