A Day In The Life Of Nadia In Unstoppable Wasp #2
by Josh Davison
[*Mild Spoilers Ahead!]
Nadia is feeling despondent and thinks everything is falling apart with G.I.R.L. Meanwhile, Ying is bouncing ideas and fists off of Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird, in the gym. After a mission with the Champions, Nadia is reminded that she had plans with Janet van Dyne, aka the original Wasp. They promised one another to ignore their cell phones and any emergencies that arise, but can the two Wasps really ignore a call to heroism?
Unstoppable Wasp #2 is a trek through a day in the life of Nadia van Dyne. There is no main conflict; instead, there are a series of smaller conflicts that build the plot. Consequently, you will feel like you’re getting more out of this comic, which is certainly a plus.
There is a climax, which is the inevitable threat that Nadia and Janet face on their night out.
It’s not really made clear why Nadia feels like everything is falling apart. The events of last issue weren’t especially dramatic, and the G.I.R.L. organization seems to be running smoothly. It feels a little contrived, but it doesn’t sink the comic.
Also, some may take issue with the fact that Ying is able to pin Mockingbird since Bobbi is famously a badass.
Gurihiru’s artwork is once again adorable, light-hearted, and all-around delightful. It handles expression well, and it goes a long way to establish the upbeat tone upon which Unstoppable Wasp thrives. Action scenes look decent, and the bee pajamas Nadia wears throughout most of the comic are cute. The color palette is bright and cheery throughout and also help build the energetic atmosphere of the comic.
The Unstoppable Wasp #2 is another good issue for Nadia and her team. It’s paced well, gives a lot of laughs, and has plenty of action to keep the reader engaged from beginning to end. This one is worth a recommendation. Feel free to check it out.
The Unstoppable Wasp #2 comes to us from writer Jeremy Whitley, artist Gurihiru, letterer VC’s Joe Caramagna, cover artist Stacey Lee, and variant cover artist Luciano Vecchio.
