Glory, a powerful and heroic fighter susceptible to berserker rages, is the daughter of an Amazon and a demon. Her birth united her parents' warring races. For most of her life, everygirl journalism student Riley has had mysterious dreams about Glory's adventures—but when Glory disappears, Riley's dreams go into reruns. Eventually, Riley decides to try to find Glory, and gets mixed up in violent cosmic conflicts for which she's wholly unprepared. Like Prophet (LJ 6/1/14), this is a reimagining of a 1990s supercharacter created by Rob Liefeld. Almost everything about this comic is exaggerated: Glory's bulky character design, her sister Nanaja's bad-girl personality, the unexpected humor, the speechifying, the tragedy, and, especially, the epic battle scenes dripping with over-the-top gore. The setting ranges from Hemingway's Left Bank to far-future Mars and beyond. Not everything makes sense, and sometimes the drama is subsumed in general craziness. But the nudity, sex, and lesbian relationships here are dealt with surprisingly matter-of-factly, and in Glory's character arc and the devotion of her friends there's genuine emotion that resonates. VERDICT For adult superhero readers who enjoy seeing things taken to extremes.—S.R.
