    Ewing’s expansion of pre-established but underdeveloped plotlines makes the story richer and more captivating. Also, he understands both the lead character and the supporting cast very well. They all feel like the characters we’ve grown to love, but they do not feel stagnant. Nie and Diaz deliver stunning art that complements the writing extremely well and portrays the characters in a sense where we can quickly and clearly tell what they are feeling.

    The Story: An exciting story filled with great tension throughout. I love the connecting stories of Janet and Nadia and how the main antagonist is targeting them both. The story has some great action and continues to craft a great plot that makes me appreciate the character even more. The finale of the issue is a great cliffhanger and I look forward to seeing where the story goes next.

    The Art: Nie delivers some beautifully stylized and detailed art throughout the issue. The visuals are fun and exciting and brilliantly complement the story.

    The mystery deepens in Wasp #2 as connections are made to various enemies across both Wasps’ histories in a web that manages to deliver its exposition in tightly crafted montages, allowing the focus to remain on Jan and Nadia’s relationship. (…) What’s most rewarding is how some of the story’s strangest elements are confronted directly, rather than ignored, which makes the cliffhanger for issue #3 very promising.

    This comic is pretty much perfect in delivering a solid, enjoyable, character-rich Wasp adventure. We’ve got heroes being heroes, bad guys being bad, and an entertaining ongoing story.

    All in all, Wasp #2 combines the appeal of Janet and Hope into one story, just in time to hype the new Ant-Man movies (which, essentially, combines them into one person), featuring attractive art aimed at modern readers and another of Ewing’s transformative plots for an issue that hits the spot, earning 3.5 out of 5 stars overall. I’m also interested in seeing how/if this comes together with last year’s Ewing-written Ant-Man series, as the combined package seems like a natural TPB juggernaut when Quantumania hits.

    Wasp #2 worked well to progress the story forward. We got more details on the greater plot involving the WHISPER organization and Creature From Kosmos. In the process we get even more hints at how Janet and Nadia Van Dyne’s are closer tied together than either knew. The ending worked well to hook the reader in to find out what will happen next.

    The horror scene that the issue ends on promises to launch the series in a very intriguing direction. If Ewing is plunging Janet and Nadia into more of a cosmic horror sort of thing, Nie and Dazs moody, dramatic art could move into much sharper focus, allowing for the series to end in a much stronger place than where its started. For all the awkward, clunky exposition, Ewing IS putting a pair of really interesting characters on the page…and they look suitably heroic thanks to the efforts of Nie and Daz. All the right elements are there for a good series. They just need to assemble themselves on the page in the second half of the series.
