There's something incredibly off about this issue, and James Robinson's run on this title in general, that I'm having a really tough time understanding. Recently, Robinson has worked with consistently great artists and has done work that really let the artist do the talking. This is the first time in a while that I've seen Robinson this front and centre, and the way he paces his issues is very wrong. His dialogue is very laughable in this issue. We meet Jason here, and the scenes between him and Wonder Woman are just so weird. They're constantly changes subjects and never focus on one thing. It's erratic and frankly very annoying.

 

Let me expand on my point about Robinson's work with artists. His work with ACO on the recent NICK FURY book was really centred around the art, so you'd think that a more consistent artist would be on the book. This is not the case. I liked Sergio Davila's art in #32, but his area of expertise seems to be action; there is almost none in this issue save for a couple of points in the story. His faces are very jagged and Wonder Woman looks different in every single panel she appears in. I will reiterate, though: Davila's action is pretty fantastic, and what little of it we get here looks great.

 

Not much happens in this issue. I believe the next issue will focus on Jason's past so don't expect any more exploration of this issue's story until next month. The story is fine, the dialogue is awkward, and the art isn't consistently good.

Our Score:

5/10
