Review: Domino #1

Impossible curves. Impossible shots. Impossible targets. Marvel’s #1 soldier of fortune is back in an explosive new ongoing series! The product of a failed super-soldier program, Neena Thurman always made her own luck as the sharpshooting mercenary known as Domino… but what happens when her own powers betray her? The hunter becomes the hunted as every mercenary in the game smells blood in the water!

Domino has always been a character that I’ve enjoyed in comics and felt while there’s been highlights, she’s never quite got the justice, or depth, she deserved. Now, writer Gail Simone is taking on this rather lucky mutant in a new series and is doing just that. Domino #1 mixes action with laughs and some depth (in a few ways).

I haven’t read everything she’s been in but it always felt like Domino was defined by her powers and her looks. Simone seems to recognize that in some ways and does so without beating around the bush. She’s good looking and her mutant powers can be cool. But, how did she get that eye tattoo? Are her powers really that good? Simone begins to explore all of that in this first issue that delivers Neena the person as well as Neena the mercenary. She does all that while also delivering some fun by letting Domino lower her inhibitions and let her hair down so to speak.

Artist David Baldeón and colorist Jesus Aburtov help things out with a mix of action, sexy, and humor throughout the comic. The art team seem to be in sync with Simone that this is a character that’s more than eye candy. There’s a lot of humor here, physical humor through images, and there’s some not so flattering moments as well. There’s a lot of characters packed in here and they all look great. Solid combo of writer and artist.

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting but this is a fantastic start to the series that shows that there’s a lot more to Domino than her looks and powers. I’m all in for the series and can’t wait to see what Simone and team have in store next.
