Understanding Previews

Understanding Previews

At pretty much every comic book shop across the U.S. and perhaps the world, the monthly Previews catelogue can be found. And it is one of the most important, and fantastic resources for anyone who regularly buys comic books and comic book related stuff. When I first started hanging out regularly at my local comics shop, many others would browse the catelogue, but initially it was something I simply saw other people use. Now, I … Read entire article »

Great Power Girl Moments #8 — Mister Terrific #1, p.25

Great Power Girl Moments #8 — Mister Terrific #1, p.25

This particular great Power Girl moment displays so amazingly a frustrated Power Girl/Karen Starr, caught in a web of high social drama. From Mister Terrific #1, Karen is at a fundraising party for a presidential candidate, held at the Conscientia Institute – a division of Holt Industries. Michael Holt/Mr. Terrific had invited Karen to join him there. For those less knowledgeable about the larger social situation (see Mister Terrific #1-8 and World’s Finest #1), Karen had … Read entire article »

Review of World’s Finest #1

Review of World’s Finest #1

For those of you waiting on the edge of your seats for the return of Power Girl – it has come. She has finally come onto the New 52 scene. It took them long enough, but it’s wonderful that she is at last back as a major character in a monthly title: World’s Finest. Earth 2 #1 Overview Before jumping in though, I really should provide a brief review of Earth 2 #1, since it is so … Read entire article »

Action vs. Character Development in the New 52

Action vs. Character Development in the New 52

One of the things standing out greatly to me in the New 52 titles I have followed, and in comics generally, is the interesting approach of either having tons of superficial battle scenes or a race to save the day, OR some really interesting character development. Strangely, Straczynski’s Superman Grounded series is what really got me first started reading comic books in a serious way due to it’s vivid and far-reaching character exploration. On the weekends, … Read entire article »

Great Power Girl Moments #7 — JSA Classified #4, p.18

Great Power Girl Moments #7 — JSA Classified #4, p.18

This is another fantastic Power Girl moment. I remember my first time reading this, I so identified with Power Girl. As many of you may know, the history of Power Girl has been convoluted throughout her many tales. This particular instance of telling occurs at the very end of four issues of her trying to figure out who she really is, what her history really is, is she really from Krypton, etc. At the very end, … Read entire article »

Great Power Girl Moments #6 — Power Girl #7, p.11

This great power girl moment is from Power Girl #7 in which Vartox comes to visit the planet Earth to mate with Power Girl. He has “traversed the cosmos on a mission of love!” Though it does not turn out that they mate in a way that one might imagine, he does eventually mate in her in Power Girl #8, but not before a lot of explaining and reasoning by Vartox. Preceding this phenomenal image, Vartox … Read entire article »

Great Power Girl Moments #5 — Power Girl #4, p.4

This is a great Power Girl moment that Power Girl has with Terra or Atlee. Terra had earlier helped Power Girl save New York City from Ultra-Humanite, and now they have buddied up for Power Girl to help her learn the ropes of life as a superhero. In this instance, though, the two of them are out watching a movie together, and Terra totally reminds me of myself at movies. Very often I’m just freaking out … Read entire article »

Power Girl in The New 52

Power Girl in The New 52

Where does Power Girl fit into DC Comic’s New 52? I, like many others, have been a bit mystified as to what The New 52 is all about and where Power Girl might fit into the larger picture. Well, I was at my local comic book shop this weekend and got the latest scoop from my fellow readers, and now everything is making a whole lot more sense. As well, although I’m a bit new … Read entire article »

Great Power Girl Moments #4 — Power Girl #17, p.12

This series of images and text on this page is another of my overwhelming favorite Power Girl moments. The images are so superbly well done and the dialogue is simply spectacular. I love Power Girl!!!! In this image, Power Girl has been hanging out with Batman, Dick Grayson specifically, as at this point in the DC Universe, Bruce Wayne is still off having gotten thrown back in time and everyone thinks he’s dead but he’s not. … Read entire article »

Review of Power Girl #26

Review of Power Girl #26

Pretty much like every issue of Power Girl, #26 was just over the top awesome. In this edition, Power Girl was attending a huge Power Girl convention in which she gave a glorious speech, twisted an I-beam of steel to show off her titanic strength, and then people stood in line to get her signature and meet her personally! And then, with a thickening plot, someone standing in line who spoke to Power Girl wanted … Read entire article »
