A little of both
This issue is a lot more engaging than the previous issue, but this should be expected as the story arc is slowly building up (this applies to both stories). The first story deals with Diana who is amassing her forces for an assault on Shamballa in order to reclaim Skartaris for its residents. This was handled with somewhat of a cliche, as usually when this happens in an issue there is a small mutiny planned. Still this story is building well to an end battle. In the backup story Donna gets a little closer to the truth by finally confronting Angle Man. Both stories basically fulfill what they are after, the first one some action, the second one some suspense.
