Naomi issue 3, from DC’s Wonder Comics imprint, once again makes us ‘wonder’ about Naomi, who is wondering about herself: ‘Who Am I?’, she wonders…

It’s a followup to the previous issue, where Naomi was piecing together shards of splintered facts about her past. But nobody was spilling much, and Naomi finally checked out the neighbourhood mechanic, who had been acting ‘hinky’. Well, ‘checking out’ actually involved uh.. breaking and entering his shop at night.

Now caught in the act, Naomi has a chance to ask her questions. The answers are confounding, deceptive, ambiguous and mind-bending. He is not who he seems, but suddenly, neither is her mom!

It’s the new chapter in the slowly unraveling ball of this yarn. Issue by issue, we are getting the big picture. It’s a quick read, fascinating but loose and floppy. Lots of expressions, emotions, and drama. Lots of room to grow. Great cover!

Writer is Brian Michael Bendis and David F Walker. Artist is Jamal Campbell.

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
