I’ve waited a while for Naomi to get published and I have to say, it was worth it.
Bendis and Walker have created an entirely new and intriguing character that we can’t wait to learn more about. It also seems that she has a lot to learn about herself as well which makes it even more interesting.
The first issue of Naomi tells the story of a small Northwestern town that gets affected by Superman’s fight with Mogul for a whole of 17 seconds. Enough it seems for Naomi (a Superman fan as we can gather) to start a quest to uncover the secrets of this small town which might be connected with her own origins.
Apart from an excellent and intriguing start, story-wise, this comic boasts of unique art panels created by Jamal Campbell. If I have to admit this must have been one of the best art-wise comics I’ve read in a while and I hope to see more of Jamal in the upcoming issues.
