    I honestly don't know how much longer the Power Girl series will last. Two more issues for certain to make the trade count, but while the series continues to sell well above 30,000 copies per issue, it also continues to fall month after month, which is a complete shame because Power Girl has all the charm and charisma of a series that could and should be a Top 20 seller each month. For those wanting a fun read in a time of undead DC heroes running around killing everyone, Power Girl #4 brings a smile and some fun and earns 4.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Since the series is just starting, it seems odd to have a "down time" issue already - but despite that minor complaint, this is a series I'm enjoying a lot. The characters are fun to be around, the stories are breezy, and did I mention the art is fantastic? Read Full Review

    While Power Girl will continue on with lots of action and fighting, if it keeps on with this particular style of humor mixed into it, it'll flow very well. Power Girl is a whole lot of fun and her relationship with Terra adds to it. The supporting cast is what needs to be expanded on as it goes on, especially with the number of characters its slowly populating her corporation with, but right now keeping things tight on these two really works very well. I keep coming back to how much fun Terra is and she's adding a lot of unexpected fun to the book. But it balances all very well with the action which Amanda Conner captures very well with her layouts and the facial expressions. Power Girl may not be a top tier book, but it has the balance of action, humor and character relationships that reminds me why I love a lot of comic books and DC books in particular.
