    This may be DC's best anthology to date and one can only hope that it is the start of more of these stories from these creators outside of just this one month Read Full Review

    The short preview of Far Sector in the back nicely hooks people for the inventive sci-fi series, and overall this is a great anthology without any weak links. The creative teams do justice to this excellent bans of heroes. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 31, 2023

    A reprint of Jemison's story from the first issue of the series, the short does a great job of showcasing the character and her history. It also beautifully showcases the art of Jamal Campbell. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Jan 31, 2023

    Most of these stories are incredible and capture the essence of so much in such a short amount of pages. The diversity of stories, of emotions, of problems and characters really makes this anthology stand out and if you approach it with a critical lens then you are going to be rewarded by thoughtful depictions of many of the problems currently plaguing the world. The lessons that can be learned from these stories are inspiring and I am glad to see many of these superheroes empowering themselves through their communities as both are elevated and ready to take on what they know to be the problem!

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 31, 2023

    DC Power: A Celebration #1 turns a spotlight on the Black heroes inhabiting the DC Universe, with a collective of Black creators at the helm. Hopefully, this isn't a one-and-done deal, as I'd love to see the spotlight turned on even more Black heroes. It truly lives up to its name of being a celebration. Read Full Review

    In a world where racism and homophobia still run rampant, despite how much popular media would have you believe otherwise, books like DC Power: A Celebration are essential. Specials like this, the DC Pride anthologies, and the Marvel Voices titles all have a common goal; awareness for a different culture. As the Marvelous competition eloquently put it, it's about giving everyone a voice. Let's hope that people listen. Read Full Review
