Hmmm, I have to say this is probably my favorite issue so far.

It's basically an issue-long fight, it's not going all that easy for Riri, and there's plot development in the background. Plus the ending is unexpected, very sweet and potentially the seed for some very good stories.

It felt devoid of stakes, because Bardas wasn't really threatening anyone other than Riri herself. I couldn't get invested because it was like, if she loses, then what? Then nothing in particular. It needed Riri standing in between Bardas and a little girl holding a puppy or something.
