    While Kurt Busiek gets a little too obvious in his bid to show us the differing attitudes that divide the Power Company, and doesn't really address the fairly easy middle of the road approach that could be taken, I will give him credit for keying into the fact that it is this debate that makes this book stand apart from the crowd. This issue also adds a couple interesting subplots to the mix, as we see Witchfire is not what she appears to be, and based on her reaction one suspects that even she isn't fully aware of what exactly she is. We also see Manhunter's little fan club hasn't vanished into the woodwork, and what's more they've managed to find a way to spy on the clone, apparently without his knowledge. It's also nice to see how well Firestorm is fitting into this group, as he gets a couple scenes in this issue that work quite nicely, though personally I wish he had displayed a little more backbone when Manhunter bit his head off.

    Tom Grummett details all with an attention toward proportion and anatomy. His composition of panels never once confuses and seamlessly knits together Mr. Busiek's story. Though this story jumps around from various points of view, you never receive a whiplash while reading. Read Full Review
