This book got alot of comments last month because of the scenes in the strip club. It really should have a mature label on it and I wish that part of the new 52 had been establishing a mature group of titles within the regular DCU. I don’t like what Marvel does with it’s Max lines. This issue, the comments should be lessened, as the sexy scenes are cut down considerably.

But the opening scene might cause a few comments on it’s own. Last issue ended with Voodoo adopting the form of Agent Evans. It had been hinted that Evans and his partner, Agent Fallon, were a little too close and this issue confirms it. But just remember that it’s Voodoo posing as Evans.

Can definately see why Fallon will end up having such a anger towards Voodoo. Talk about being violated.

The story is pretty fast paced with Blackrazors (from the Wildstorm universe), apparently an armored suit part of the FBI now, trying to capture Voodoo and Fallon trying to be the one to do the capturing. Marz uses this to full effect, allowing us to get a very good feel for what Voodoo’s new powerset is. We see her shapechange, we see her use telepathy and we see her in her combat form.

And we also get alot of questions. The dialogue, which is Voodoo’s, leaves more questions then answers. Is she a spy or a soldier? She says she’s trying to protect her people, but she has an odd way of doing it. Prior to the first issue, in interviews, Marz had said that he wanted to make the main characters of the book hard to read if they were good or bad. So far it seems that Voodoo is leaning towards bad, but there’s enough there that I can see where it will get murky.

The captions throw off the pacing of the story in a couple of spots. The quick thoughts aspect is hard to follow as well. It’s not as solid as it could be. Still entertaining but not as strong as the first issue.

Basri’s art is excellant. Good figures, good layouts and draws some killer women. The action sequances can use a little work though, not as strong as the rest of the work.
