I found myself wanting to read more pages from this creative team, as Stegman's clean and expressive art is well suited to both the space action scenes as well as the quiet moments in Broxton. He draws Sif as obviously attractive but without relying to cheap butt shots or making her armor skin tight so that you could see every muscle in her body, a trap that many other artists quickly fall to. While in battle mode, Sif comes across as confident and skilled, though when the tables turn on her, we can see the desperation in her body language.
DeConnick made me care about this character, understand what motivates her and what she fears, in the span of twenty two pages, and it makes me wonder what she could do with more space to tell bigger stories. I also enjoyed the interactions with Beta Ray Bill a whole lot, which showed that DeConnick has a clear understanding of how to handle different characters with distinct voices, with some great lines thrown into the script, of which "They mean to take you alive" was probably my favorite.
