Comic Book Week: September 15, 2010

Kara's Comic this week is "Double or Nothing"......issue #5 of the new Zatanna series and the middle part of the current story arc. In it a casino owner has to try to get Zee to marry him in order to sacrifice her to a demon and give him immortality. And Zee's cute cousin Zacahary Zatarra (from the Teen Titans with powers similar to Zee's) also makes an appearance.

Oh! In case you don't know, Zatanna (Zatarra) is a magician who can pretty much do anything by just saying here words backwards. Its hard to read but its simple to describe which is good. And she's generally a really cool competent smart chic! I like her! Even if she does dress kindof trampy....... :(

So Zee is pretty much all powerful as long as she can talk so all of her stories pretty much center around the villains trying to take her voice away. So they can be very formulaic but that can be comforting......like Scooby Doo! ツ

Dini tells an okay story, although I preferred the first arc. The cover is very pretty (the variant too! see this? http://www.comixology.com/previews/JUL100188/1/). Unfortunately it kindof detracts from the interior art which is nice but does not quite meet the same level. (and the letters & color are nice too!)

Sorry this week is short but........

RATING: !01 fo tuo tah a morf )❤( seinnub 6 ;)
