Naomi #4

Brian Michael Bendis is such a tease. The fourth issue of Naomi offers some answers but leaves just as many questions dangling. From her adopted father, who is actually a soldier from Rann, Naomi learns the true story of how her parents met and how he was sent here to track down a Thanagarian assassin (the same mechanic who had trouble hiding the truth from Naomi once she began asking questions).
As to who Naomi's parents were, and who she is, well... that's still a bit of mystery. That she arrived through a portal, hunted down by an undefined group, offers a deeper mystery. The fact that the woman who was running with her (her mother? or her kidnapper?) also left behind a little something extra in a small box will likely lead to its own series of questions.

I'm thoroughly sold on the comic's premise at this point and can't wait to see just what that box holds and how it may change, or reveal, Naomi's fate and place within the DCU. Must-read.
