Joe Keatinge’s reimagining of Glory, a Wonder Woman knockoff—er, analog—from the early days of Image, throws out all but the most basic facets of the character and kicks it into high gear with a high-octane sci-fi yarn. Artist Ross Campbell’s storytelling is fine, but his character designs are the best thing about the art; this Glory is built like a tank and, indeed, looks like she can pick one up and chuck it. The supporting cast is distinctive, and the hordes of demonic aliens that the group ends up fighting are varied and imaginative. 

Glory, a warrior caught between the two worlds of her lineage, is compelling, but the point-of-view character Riley is more interesting on balance. A human with prophetic dreams that is swept into Glory’s world—gladly at first, but growing ever more reluctant—Riley is another nice touch that’s turned a once-generic property into something most any fan of superheroes should enjoy.

Dear Solti,Thank you very much for writing such a wdonerful article and I am very pleased to read your thoughts and I totally agree. Shree Meshrom must remain the treasure of all Ghandrukes rather than some individual groups and as always the Meshrom will continue to bless us all at good times as well as at bad times where ever we are in this global village.Well doneUdai B Gurung MBE
