For as disappointing and bleh as Vol 1 was, this one was amazing. DeConnick is my new graphic novel writer crush. The way she handles the characters is just - wow!! And of course, including Carol Danvers, my favorite superheroine, also gets brownie points. Actually, the fact that DeConnick's run included more women than Vol 1 was very encouraging and has even made me more interested in Spiderwoman/Jessica.
Good art. Great characters. Fantastic, witty, sarcastic dialogue. Interesting plots.
One of the few cases where I am SUPER glad I pursued the series instead of bailing after the first book/volume.
