Comments: Lady Freedom we see discussing the state of super-heroes and she has a job to do with Black Valkyrie on the loose. Camille a new combat super-hero will be joining her since all the other heroes are busy.
The panel with a military man checking out Camille’s butt is kind of out of place in a military installation.
Both Lady Freedom and Black Valkyrie are illustrated with some muscles. They do look like professional muscle builders. Their fight is filled with hard-hitting action.
Camille is shown in action and she is more than one might expect for a sidekick. Scarlett looks great all in red as she just shows up to help out.
There is some humor in the story and the talking about super-heroes is strange. Are they super-heroes or military or just some weird experiment? Things are not made all that clear.
The scene with Camille saving some tourists is skipped over. She takes out the small army but whatever happened to the tourists? Also uses her powers on the small army yet it is not shown as they fall. The scenes which would have the most action are not there.
The big fight scene between Black Valkyrie and Lady Freedom is not shown. It is skipped over. You get to see only the end after the battle.
The characters need to be more fleshed out so you know more about them to make you care more about them. It is good to have some muscles on super-powered heroes but the art should show off more than that.
Lady Freedom is a strong female character who just needs to be shown and used more as a hero.
