Gotham City Sirens #12 - DC
Everybody seems to have something going on here . . their own life . . except for Harley. She just seems to be tagging along for the ride. Pamela has recently started working at STAR labs, under the alias of Dr Paula Irving. But she made some waves on her first day by firing some people, right off the bat. Well one of them put 2 and 2 together, realized who she actually was, and ended up trapping her in a plant dehydrator. It would've been the end, but . . luckily Ivy always carries some saplings with her. She makes it grow big enough to bust her out of the chamber. And normally, for such an afront, Ivy wouldn't hesitate in killing her captor. But . . Ivy may actually be turning a new leaf. After reviewing her personnel file, she tells Alisa . .'I'm beginning to think our employment situation can still be salvaged. After all, you're the only one who figured out my true identity. So long as you and I can reach an understanding we can both keep our jobs, and that daughter of your can keep her mom.' Normally, I don't think she'd give someone a chance like that. Anyways, in the meantime, Selina is concerned about her sister . . Maggie. Ever since Blackest Night she hasn't seen or heard from her. Well . . long story short, Maggie thinks that Selina is posessed by some form of cat-demon. To that end, she wants to save her sister. She goes to a renowned exorcist for some help. But in her delusion, she thinks that this woman is also possesses and ends up killing her. While going through her vestments she comes across a vile with some kind of vapor in it. It ends up being an angel . . or a demon. We don't know which yet. So in the end, Maggie is the one that is posessed, and comes after her sister looking like a warrior nun. I thought it was a pretty good book. I enjoy Tony Bedard's stories. But honestly, I thought the whole thing with Maggie took a rather strange turn. I guess we'll have to wait and see how it all comes out. Right now . . to me . . it's all just a little bit crazy. Guillem March did the cover, but it looks like Peter Nguyen is going to be the penciller from now on. I thought it was an ok issue, though. Just a little strange at the end.
