World's Finest #2 - A Review

 World's Finest #2 delivers more of the quality storytelling and amazing artwork that we saw in the first issue.  Paul Levitz continues both concurrent stories from the previous issue - one set in the present day which features Power Girl and Huntress tracking down a radiation-empowered super-villain and a flashback which shows how the two heroines came to establish themselves in new lives and new identities on a strange new Earth.

As before, the art duties are split between master artists Kevin Maguire and George Perez..  Maguire, who for my money draws the best facial expressions in all of comics, handles the flashback scenes with his usual skill. By contrast, Perez handles the modern scenes with his usual highly-detailed, high-action style.  Most books would be lucky to have one artist of such caliber - to have two such artists makes this book a special one indeed.

You actually could jump in on the series with this issue.  But why should you when your local comic shop probably still has a few copies of World's Finest #1 left?  Either way, whether you start with Issue 1 or 2, you should be reading this book.
