Sometimes I miss the days when I would have just felt vaguely unsatisfied with this book, shrugged, and moved on. Understanding why I don't like it does not make it easier to deal with.

Can we start with the fawning introduction by some guy I never heard of? It is especially impressed at how the book BEGINS with the death of a female superhero. How unexpected, et cetera.

So, yes. A woman is captured by the evil, and shot in the head. Beautiful.

Somehow the hero's death wakes up her.. sister? Something. She's a plant. She doesn't have a name.

Things happen AROUND this nameless woman. These things are done by men. Always men. She doesn't do much of anything.

The art's nice, though.

I'm just tired.
