…N’Vir Is Scott Free and Big Barda’s Daughter, BUT There’s A Catch?!

The book opens with N’Vir, the adult daughter of Mister Miracle Scott Free and Big Barda, wanting to punish Shilo Norman for stealing her dad’s legacy from her.

After that battle, N’Vir and her henchpeople the Core boom tube away leaving Shilo Norman to realize he was partially unmasked; not enough to reveal his secret identity, but enough to reveal his skin color.

The Pulse:

Was surprised, but am delighted how this series explores race and legacy as part of an overall cosmic narrative. Decent art. 8 out of 10.
