Power Girl #3

I remember reading a lot of reviews of issue 2 of this series which were concerned about just how easily Power Girl was subdued by The Ultra Humanite. The usual concerns about bondage artwork, cheesecake and everything that seems to come up whenever anyone tries to discuss Power Girl was discussed.

Which makes this issue all the more satisfying, since we find out very early on - within the first three pages - that Karen was playing possum the whole time. :)

You can check out the rest of the preview DC Comics blog.

Simply put, this book is fun. The kind of fun comic books SHOULD be. And if looking at this and the preview above can't convince you that this isn't the best new series to be release this year and that you should be reading this book... well, I don't know what else to say.

The Final Verdict: Still one of the most fun books out there and a good one for anyone looking for a book centering on a strong female protagonist. The art is great too!


  1. Ultra Humanite: IMPOSSIBLE!
    Power Girl: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    That's brilliant!

  3. I got to meet Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti at SDCC and it made my Con. They are the nicest people in the whole world of comics I think (with maybe the exception of JMS) and clearly deeply care about every book they write. You are dead on that this is a fun book, and they type of fun books should be. I'm still gushing over this series and tell everyone they should buy it. I want to see the two of them do Diana next.

  4. I want to see the two of them do Diana next.
    Only if Gail Simone is leaving Wonder Woman to do Green Arrow/Black Canary.
    Still, glad you had fun meeting them. :)
