Jirni #5 (of 5)

   Any series manages a bit of a stumble from time to time, and for Jirni, this is that issue.

   The purple-skinned heroine has been the subject of two mini-series so far, following her adventures as she searches for her mother and the secrets behind her ability to change from an ordinary mortal into a powerhouse.

   It's been (mostly) sword-and-sorcery action, with the occasional side mission.

   This issue wraps up the latest such adventure, as Jirni seeks to rescue a small army of women who are being brainwashed by an evil mastermind.

   It's a by-the-numbers story with no real surprises along the way - and it doesn't really do anything to get the hero closer to her ultimate goal - but the art is very good and the tease for the next series promises more answers and adventures.

Grade: B
