    All right. Power Girl is funny. Gray and Palmiotti have a wicked sense of humor, and Conner is far away from being a straight woman. But, why the fifth bullet? Well, this is the first post-Crisis appearance of Vartox, so I could argue that the issue of Power Girl does have historical significance. Of course, I don't care about those things. The creative team have selected just the perfect tone. Too much, and this would have been a farce not worth buying, but the team really thought things through and bury jokes within jokes while also respecting the characters. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 17, 2009

    It's amazing how refreshing an issue like this can be. The creative does not scrimp on the action or the character development, but they keep it all light and infuse it with a great sense of humor that is accented by strong art from Amanda Conner. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Dec 20, 2009

    It would be easy to dismiss this comic as just being centered around one of DC's most prominent sex symbols, but this comic is much more than that. With strong writing and fantastic art, it's well worth checking out! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Dec 16, 2009

    You can read this issue on the surface and have a good laugh. However, Gray and Palmiotti were trying to make us laugh and make us uncomfortable at the same time (something only the best comedians can do) by exposing our pretty superficial expectations and motivations for reading this series. They succeed. If you want mildly titillating irony aimed at you, then pick up this book. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 11, 2011

    This issue the type where you have a grudging admiration for it as you really don't want to see a story with a Zardoz knock-off yet you have to admit that all the parties involved captured it just right and made it fun. Connor really nails the visuals here and every panel has me watching Power Girl's face just so I can see how diverse and comical her expressions can be with it. Palmiotti and Gray use a tried and true storyline to good effect here and have the right amount of nod and wink to the reader about it. With clean artwork, smooth writing and a good sense of fun and action about it, it's a good issue that leaves you smiling, but you can't help but want to have a little more meat to the meal as well.

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Dec 19, 2009

    A solid, intriguing issue that simply lacks an original plot to really make it shine. Working with the limitations and clichd nature of the story, Gray, Palmiotti, and Connor get as much entertainment and humor out of it that they can, but it's not as much as they're obviously capable of. But, the issue ends on a strong cliffhanger, so I'll make sure to be back next month and all of you should join me. Read Full Review
