    With a new stat quo cemented in place, the return of Bibiana Lopez-Yang kicks off its’ next chapter with an issue you can’t miss. Flores’ incredible writing is matched with Carlomagno’s superb visuals to give readers a combination of action and emotional complexity that simply can’t be missed.

    DL has come a long way in only seven issues. Flores’s overall pacing feels like it might be moving a bit too quickly, but only because she’s gone from San Francisco to Jordan in…seven issues. There’s nothing structurally wrong with Flores’s pacing over the course of the entire run of the series…but there IS some concern that maybe she might be painting herself into a corner in the long run if things get international as quickly as they have. At this rate, she’s going to be fighting aliens on the other side of the galaxy by the end of the year.

    Bibi’s life never fails to get a bit more complicated, though that only makes things more compelling for those reading along, and Dead Lucky #7 fits that bill perfectly. There’s a palpable thrill in watching Bibi just be a badass and one of the best at what she does, and artist French Carlomagno and colorist Matt Iacono know how to maximize those sequences with big action and even bigger colors. Between the set pieces, writer Melissa Flores explores the price of peace and the toll grief and regret can have on someone, even someone as powerful as Bibi. A discussion between Bibi and Maria is easily one of the deeper conventions in the issue, and it will be interesting to see where Bibi as a character goes from here. Her more curmudgeonly demeanor plays best against the people who comment on it, and one such pairing also leads to a big reveal that has me hyped to see where things go from here. After that hook, next month’s issue can’t get here soon enough.
