You had me at the heart ripping
I was a bit disappointed by the first issue in the mini. Rucka seemed to offer only a one dimensional version of a deep character and a story that seemed in the same style as most of the other Blackest Night minis. This issue changes everything. Set during Blackest Night #6 this issue is as much a spotlight on Mera as it Wonder Woman. That's not to say that WW doesn't get her time to shine, SHE DOES, but Mera continues to evolve into a character I care about. A lot happens in this issue that actually seems to play into the story at large. I think it's worth reading if you like Wonder Woman or Aqua-Woman and there are some definite badass lines delivered from both parties. Althought I'm usually a big Nicola Scott fan I thought the art was a little flat but I'm seem to recall she is at her best when working with a wide range of colours not just black and grey. Fills in necessary story.
