You might think Power Girl and Superman would be more than up to the task of taking down a few dozen dinosaurs but we forgot to mention they were magic dinosaurs. The kind that spontaneously grow wings. And shoot lasers from their eyes. Under ordinary circumstances, they'd turn to Zatanna for help but it looks like she's the one who summoned the dinos in the first place! What's going on here?

    Sami Basri has given us another book of clean, energetic artwork, including dinosaurs with machine gun hands and one dressed as a lumberjack, which together give you just about anything you could want in a dinosaur. The only black mark to this issue is a rather stilted opening page. Winick tries to give us a recap in a funny way, but even given the conceit that Superman and Power Girl are having trouble hearing one another, the dialogue is just way too stilted and clunky to really work for the characters. One bad page versus 19 great ones, though? That's a pretty good ratio. Read Full Review

    In the interview with CBR, Weiland defines the fanbase of Power Girl as "smaller, but disproportionately loyal to the character." With Winick and Basri delivering issues like this, fans of this book have had reason to remain loyal. The way this issue closes gives clear indication that we've got a lot to look forward to.

    Theres no sophistication to this kind of story, but it makes for a fun read and works to Winicks strengths. I would not mind seeing him continue this format for the rest of his run. Read Full Review

    It's not a great issue, but it does have magic dinosaurs and a pretty good appearance by Zatanna (who keeps to my rule that she's far more interesting guest-starring in other books than in her own current monthly title). Worth a look. Read Full Review
