The Rundown: Yelena’s quiet life gets upended by a powerful corporation and its assassins.
Yelena continues to live her quiet life while also discovering what things in the world she likes and dislikes. After meeting with more of her new neighbors, one company’s name continues to be hurled around, Armament. A name that will bring some interesting visitors straight to her door when she tries to get information about some new tech.
Her new visitors decide that she doesn’t need to be in possession of Armament technology and attempt to violently remove it. In the aftermath, Yelena decides that she a new target and her neighbors need to know who she really is.
The Story: Gailey delivers a fun and lively story in this issue. A great follow up to the first issue filled with humor, action and thrills. I loved the flashback moments with Wolverine and how that encounter informs her new life. There is a fun and engaging tone to this series so far and I look forward to the next issue.
The Art: Miracolo delivers beautiful art throughout the issue. The visuals are as fun and thrilling as the story itself and made me smile a lot.
