it was ok

Naomi introduces DC/Wonder Comics' new heroine Naomi as she learns the truth behind her adoption and who her biological parents as well as who one of her adoptive parents is.

Naomi has some good ideas at its core. The characters are likable enough. The problem is that very little actually happens. Bendis is a good writer but the format of this book played into one of his weaknesses. He has an elaborate back story for Naomi as well as many other characters Lake Oswego and he's determined to get out.

The book has page after page of people talking, flashbacks, and backstory. It's tedious. The amount of text used is sometimes tedious with multiple narration bubbles filling pages. I feel this probably would have worked better if this has been 12 issues with back story worked in around more stories and adventures. As it is, this too often feels like an info dump more than anything else.
