    Another strong issue that leaves me rather disappointed by the news of this book's impending cancellation, as it's certainly shaping up to be some of Kurt Busiek's best work (though it's not quite at the lofty heights of Astro City, or Marvels). The cast of this book are really coming into their own, and the idea of a for-hire group of heroes is actually proving to be a fascinating means of examining what it means to be a hero. Firestorm's conversation with Skyrocket also displays Kurt Busiek's strong understanding of continuity, and even the guest-appearance by the Haunted Tank holds up rather well. Now the book does seem to be steering the team toward the rocks as I expect Power Company is going to be scattered to the four winds when the final issue arrives, but this issue held my interest from page one, and here's hoping Kurt Busiek will get another kick at the can with these characters in the future, as a one-shot, or even a miniseries would be a very welcome sight.

    The colorist is a bit confused with the next vignette's star character, but Mr. Busiek once again shows how this type of story should be done. He doesn't just provide a legacy and one that is unexpected. He explains why the legacy exists and why it's so important. Read Full Review
