Left without a choice, Cassandra Price joins a group of magically powered women in the secret war against the mysterious digital daemons preying on humanity through the AI to which all mankind is connected. While she struggles to understand the increasingly ominous demands from her imperial employer and to figure out her own mysterious abilities, one thing is made certain: the consequences for failure are lethal…
I love the cover by Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi. It’s unique and eye-catching. I think the weird green background is cool.
The interior art is great for the same reasons. There’s nothing I can think that looks like this. The characters all have cool designs. There’s a lot of style that I find engaging.
I felt that the first two issues struggled to set up the world and characters; the story often got lost in exposition. With the set up out of the way, Zoe Quinn has a more focused script. The dialogue is able to shine a little more. These characters are a lot of fun. They get a chance to come alive in this issue and it makes their conflicts, Cassandra’s especially, a lot more interesting.
There are no negatives worth mentioning.
This is a great issue. The story is moving at a more natural place with characters that are engaging and fun. The art is incredible; it creates a unique and inventive world. I really enjoyed this.
