    This comic is one of three that top my must read each and every month, regardless of my review list. Winick and Basri have taken on the task of following up a stunning creative crew on this title and have done a stellar job of making this book their own. "Power Girl" continues to be one of the very best superhero titles on the new comics rack today, and each and every issue drives that point home Read Full Review

    It will be some time before such a determination can be made, but if the book continues in the direction Winick and Basri have been taking it straight up well look back on issue 21 as the moment this title grew the metaphorical beard. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 27, 2011

    Winick's takeover of this title was abrupt and brusque as heck, and really rankled me as a reader when it wiped out everything that Amanda, Justin and Jimmy set up, but it has become clear that this was an intentional effect, to show how sudden and dangerous having Maxwell Lord target you can be. I'm still not entirely cool with Starrware being dismantled, but this issue shows that it's an ongoing process, and that perhaps things are not beyond repair. The art in this issue is quite good, as Sami Basri acheives a subtlety that reminds me of both Frasier Irving and Daniel Acuna, making Power Girl both muscular and feminine, and even delineating between two guys in identical bat-cowls with subtleties of facial shape and expression. Nice work, under a simply beautiful and understated cover. I'm really glad that I stayed with Power Girl's book after the change in creatorship, but I'm still a bit miffed at how long it took to get to the bloody point about what's really going on. All in all, Read Full Review
