With Sana captured by Way*Of*Life, the rest of the Suicide Girls retreat for home, lick their wounds, and plan the next stage of their attack. As one may expect, this largely involves lounging around in very little clothing. And let’s face it, that’s pretty much the selling point for this title. Not to say the story is terrible, it’s not, but it’s not really anything special either. Even bringing in the idea of a mole in the organization isn’t totally new, and they way it’s pulled across robs the story of some potential drama. The question, in a nutshell, is of whether there’s an actual traitor among the Suicide Girls or I one of them is the victim of some Way*Of*Life brainwashing. One of these options would require one of the girls to become a bad guy, and I get the feeling that’s something that wouldn’t be allowed. That’s the thing about this title – although all the SGs are “bad girls” in their own way, none of them really seem to have any actual flaws. Quirks, yes, and oddities, but nothing that could really cast any of them in a negative light. I know the basic idea behind the property is one of acceptance and empowerment, and that’s all well and good, but in fiction, characters who have nothing wrong with them get kind of dull, because the truth is, real people aren’t like that. David Hahn and Cameron Stewart pull across some really strong artwork, bringing the book’s rating up a bit. The looks of the girls are all very natural, very unique, and each is attractive in a different way, which is all to the good. It’s an okay book, but it’s not going to become a classic.

Rating: 7/10
