Subj: Gotham City Sirens #16...
Posted: Sat Oct 09, 2010 at 03:19:38 pm EDT (Viewed 201 times)

The story likable enough, with its simplicity, and a change towards a more desired artstyle, with admirable effort...

Gotham City Sirens 16

Also liked:
-the cover
-the opening metaphors of CW's thoughts
-the detail of the mind-dream border
-the use of the Batcharacters appearing, especially Z (though a locale given for B&R wouldn't have hurt)
-the listen-to-me gag with Harley was cute (though done to death with so many panels alotted just to that)
-the reference to last arc crisis and story flow into this one
-the hate felt from I for Z
-the limitation added to using magical mental blocks
-the focus on Catwoman (so, Ivy is ticked, Harley is pals, Z is tolerant, Talia respects, the big bad mind reader wants wants to hurt her)

Still work to do to make the series a must read, for example:
-so, is Alfred in the Mansion above the Cave or the lavish Penthouse above the Bunker?
-Batman has a MAGICAL ACTIVITY DETECTOR now? Not crazy about that unless much limitations will be added
-hmmm... the Batmobile has a new hood grill? Also not sure how often previous artistic license has given the Batmobile a (clearly more secure but) hard to imagine quickreleasing seatbelt - or Alfred so much neck flab
-undecided on their slob lifestyle 'til some of their POV is offered
-rarely like how Z's spells are presented in a just-read-it-and-like-it way; for example(not that a JLAer shouldn't beat a villainess) if Ivy still had her mind couldn't she still mentally command plants?
-it was lacking in the big fight choreography (though it was easy enough to follow)
-so, not sure if Dick called Black Widow ..oops.. Talia as the backup; is she part of The Network http://www.comicboards.com/batman/files/marq07.JPG now despite the nasty stuff done in other titles? Or does she show up following her unsolicited interrogation and the inadequate reader's-clue that big bad wanted TIME and not Selina?
