Some thoughts about A-Force #1
Singularity has managed to arrive to Earth to find all of her old friends. However, she will soon realize that things are not as she used to remember.
This issue marks the proper beginning of this team. As you may remember, A-Force had its own miniseries as part of the Secret Wars crossover and you may also recall that I didn't particularly like it. So, how does this new jumping on point fares in comparison?
Well, I liked it just as much as the last one.
G. Willow Wilson is once again back to write the series and he uses one of the plot-points she created during the previous miniseries, Singularity. Of course, the writer plays with the parallels between this universe and the other where Singularity comes from and how her friends might not feel the same about her here. The interactions are decently done in that regard.
That being said, there's very little to like and by that I mean that there's very little content in this opening chapter. We have only met half of the rest of the team while the plot barely progressed and there's not enough investment to actually keep reading. In fact, the story is almost nonexistent, is just about how Singularity arrives to Earth and meets a few heroes, that's all.
Jorge Molina handles the artwork and it looks truly good. The characters have good expressions and there's a nice sense of presentation.
Other than that, this doesn't really make excited for the future, don't know if I'm going to continue.
