Review: Naomi #6

Naomi #6

Naomi #6 wraps up the first season of the series more people should be reading. With her origins finally revealed, Naomi embraces the journey ahead and charts a course for the future and her role. 

Naomi has been a series that has flown under the radar. Each issue has been a combination of entertaining story and breathtaking art. Together, it’s one of the best debuts of a superhero in some time.

With her origin revealed, we finally get conflict and a villain who feels like an actual threat. Up to this point, Naomi has been a series about discovery and this last issue pivots a bit delivering what is the first real battle.

With a “season 2” coming, writers Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker give us that initial battle that has us excited to see more down the road. It’s a taste of what’s to come with a flair that evokes manga. While the series could have used one more issue, the finale has Naomi finding her “voice” in a sense. That’s been a theme for the series, one of discovery. And with that, Bendis and Walker have created a series that feels like constant wonder.

Naomi #6 really stands out for the art courtesy of Jamal Campbell. The sense of visual style evokes manga battles with over the top exaggeration and a look that has you feel Naomi powering up and delivering her punches. It’s a unique comic and stands out from the rest of DC’s releases. The art delivers the youthful energy of the story and combined with the story itself has that audience in mind. Campbell has stood out for this entire series firmly planting himself as one of the best artists out there currently. Every issue has rocked the visuals and this one is no exception.

Naomi #6 caps off a series too few people are reading. It delivers the magic that Bendis has done before with other characters and combined with Walker’s style, creates a first volume that has us excited to see what comes next. Along with art that pops from the page, this is a series that needs to be read and delivers on the excitement of an origin story that seems to be a lost art form. Along with a youthful voice and look, this is one of the best debut volumes of the year and we can’t wait for more.

Review: Naomi #5

Naomi #5

Naomi #5 delivers the goods at it takes the build up and actually pays off. Who is Naomi? Where did she come from? What can she do? And what does it mean for the rest of the DC Universe?

Even if you haven’t been reading this series, Naomi #5 is a surprisingly accessible issue. Writers Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker have put together an issue that feels like a classic origin. The promises and hype leading up pay off. Naomi #5 has been worth the wait.

In the previous issue we began to get a better idea of the wonderful world Bendis and Walker have put together and here we get the rest of the puzzle. The issue chronicles Naomi’s origin opening up so many possibilities of what’s to come. It’s the tone though that stands out. The issue is touching with heart and a sense of love throughout. It takes the best of classic origin stories and weaves it together with a modern narrative style. The end result is a magical experience and one of the best new comics of recent years.

The issue’s beauty is helped by the art of Jamal Campbell who along with letterer Wes Abbott create visual amazement. Traditional page, panels, and text layouts are gone at times. Instead, pages focus on Campbell’s art with a text overlay. The comic at times takes on the feel of a picture book creating a richer reading experience. Letter boxes would distract from Campbell’s art. Abbott’s lettering floating on the page instead adds to the magical nature of it all.

To say this issue is amazing and a thing of wonder is an understatement. The team has put together an origin issue far into their narrative. The issue delivers and does so in an amazing way. This series, and this comic in particular, recreates the magic of my childhood. Naomi #5 is a marriage of a wonderful narrative and beautiful artwork. It’s also a series that’s woefully overlooked and one of the best superhero comics on the market today.
