Ame-Comi Girls #8The final issue collecting the digital comics reimagining the DCU filled with all super-powered heroines and villains comes to a close with more of a whimper than a bang with three separate tales introducing three new characters rather than offering up a final big adventure.

Of the three stories the middle one concerning White Canary is the most interesting as the other two don’t offer much in the way of diffrentiating the Ame-Comi version of the characters from their regular DCU counterparts. The Big Barda space pirate story is fun but incomplete and Mera vs. a female Black Manta didn’t do much for me at all.

The White Canary story gives us a character whose sonic scream is far more pronounced, making it impossible for the heroine to communicate at anything above a whisper (unless she wants to destroy all surrounding structures). I’ve enjoyed this series, and even if the final issue is one of the weakest, I’ll still miss it’s optimism and gleeful spirit. Once again, this is something the New 52 could use far more of… as well as more strong (preferably not insane) female characters. For fans.
