Comments: Ant is drawn really skinny. The colors on the creatures attacking her, the MODOK wannabes are way too pale and bland. The same applies to the men after her.
Some of the action poses are fairly well-drawn but most are not. Daredevil jumps in to help Ant who needs the help. Now he is drawn as a superhero.
The story is confusing and no explanations are given. Why is Ant fighting these soldiers and who is Charlie? What is Ant’s deal?
Ant is drawn with big breasts and a tight thin body. Yet her feminine side is not well shown. She hits hard in a fight. The pin-up style page of Ant getting shot now this is a pin-up page. This is how she should be drawn all the time. The close-ups of Hannah’s face not covered by the costume are gorgeously drawn.
While talking to the scientist who created her costume and put it in her, we learn a little about her origin and her true origin.
Wow, some of the art like when Hannah is shown at her new apartment is drab.
The pin-up page at the end of the story is nicely set up. Ant’s body though just seems off.
Ant has the basics to be a great character she just needs the right team on her.
