My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was undoubtedly five star material. An impressive comic debut.
Scarlet is a young, strong-willed heroine who rebels against corruption after surviving trauma and loss caused by a dirty cop. She becomes a symbol for change, a beacon of hope against malevolent authorities. Bendis brings down the fourth wall, allowing Scarlet to speak directly to the reader. This style makes her message that much more potent.
The artwork is beautiful and real. The story is brutal and demanding.
I cannot wait for issue 6.
