Comments: Athena and her companions find a large tomb. Within the tomb they find what they were looking for. Others though want it to and have followed them. Bullets do fly as this grave robbing turns into a deadly fire fight.
The art for the most part is to dark. To much shadows. The people their skin looks flat. One panel does show a nice butt shot of Athena. The action scenes come to life. You can almost feel it as Athena strikes.
This issue feels like something from an Indiana Jones movie. Athena is even going against Nazi’s. It lacks the excitement needed.
Athena goes through the motions of an exciting adventure but it is boring. It needed a much aster pace to certain parts. She basically just walks through the role. Some humor would have been nice to see as well.
Athena looks the part now she just needs to act the part. Everything is here to make it work.
