We get to see the Four Horsewomen’s story continue in this fifteenth issue of WWE. This issue highlights Bayley while she prepares for her match with Sasha for the NXT Women’s Championship. Bayley is a really fun wrestler to follow in this comic book, especially the time the issue is following her in. That was a such a great point in the women’s revolution in WWE, with Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Sasha Banks all moving up to the main roster while Bayley was still in NXT. It’s the perfect setup for drama and showing off Bayley’s hard work.

That drama comes alive when Bayley meets up with the other three women. Sasha is rudely treating Bayley like she’s not as good as them, that she will never win the NXT Women’s Championship, and that she will never move up to the main roster. All of that makes Bayley fight harder to be ready to beat Sasha for the championship and proving to everyone that she is ready for anyone that gets in the ring with her.

As usual, Serg Acuña does a great job at illustrating the in-ring action in these issues while also making it fun to see our favorite superstars in their backstage settings. Bayley’s training scenes were especially awesome to see because she looked extremely tough and Acuña accurately illustrated her determination.

At the end of the issue, we get to read the second part of “Though She Be But Little, She is Fierce,” which in short segments is following Asuka barreling through the NXT roster. This second part’s two pages are really fun and Asuka looks really intense.

This issue isn’t breaking new ground in comic books, but it is fun and easy to read. I enjoy seeing the way they write what the feuds look like backstage which makes my memories of the matches more interesting. This issue follows Bayley, one of the most fun superstars and that helps make it really enjoyable.
