    The storycrafting technique by Ordway is flawless, and the reader can follow what's happening even without referring to the words. This brings me to the one depiction that clearly does not belong in the story. I blame Johns, the mastermind behind "I was never much of a computer whiz," for the demeaning moment where Cave Carson's boring car hits some turbulence that throws Wildcat out of his seat and aims him directly at Power Girl's boobs. This demeaning scene which relies upon the lowest form of Benny Hill styled humor exemplifies Johns' treatment of Power Girl, and it undermines an otherwise visually dramatic comic book.

While there is a signature Johnsian cliffhanger splashpage, this one substitutes whimsical mystery for the violence to which his epilogues are often prone. Read Full Review
