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 Superman #714

Review of Superman #714

Well, I picked up Superman #714 the final issue of the Straczynski’s Ground series and it ended surprisingly really well.

Meanings of The New 52

Meanings of The New 52

As many of you may know, DC Comics has made a marketing choice to reset all of it’s comics to be number ones, drop a bunch of titles in the process, shockingly including Power Girl, and start up a bunch of new titles in the process, too. They are hoping that this resetting of the numbers to all be #1s will spark a renewed interest in comics generally, but specifically in DC titles. And they … Read entire article »
