Naomi #3

Still searching for answers, and sure the adults in her town know more than they are telling, Naomi pushes Dee for information. What the lumbering, but terrified, mechanic offers, however, shocks the adopted girl from Oregon. He and the love of his life were elite Thanagarian warriors who ran away from their duties to Earth, but were sadly were separated before she could join him.

Given the interruption by Naomi's incredibly irate adoptive mother, Dee's story ends before any of it begins to tie directly to Naomi. However, given that her adoptive father reveals that he too is from space, it seems like the wild story of Naomi's parentage may be far stranger than she could have imagined.

Continuing to tease us about Naomi's past by offering just as many nuggets as false assumptions (such as Dee and his lost love possibly being her parents), writer Brian Michael Bendis delivers just enough truth and foreshadowing of larger events to keep the reader, like Naomi, focused on learning the truth (and guessing what may come next). Worth a look.
