    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jan 21, 2010

    There is an interesting side story that will have Satanna and Dr. Sivana teaming for some Ultra-Humanite revenge.Oh yes, events in this series keep building in a way that continues to develop the Power Girl universe and the characters that live in it. Each month Power Girl reaffirms my belief that Gray and Palmiotti are the best writing team in the industry, and that I wish I had enough money to purchase all the original pages of Conner's work. Power Girl #8 is a great ending to a story that started off strong, and earns a solid 5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Jan 23, 2010

    While the method in which Vartox and Power Girl rescue the population of Valeron from extinction depends on Arthur C. Clarke's Law, in which any sufficiently advanced form of technology will appear to be magic, it makes fundamental sense. More so than the many pulps that featured alien invaders beaming down to take women for mating rituals. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Jan 25, 2010

    This really is an underrated comic. I suspect some readers may be staying away from it thinking it's just another title running on sex appeal alone - but the art is great, the stories are enjoyable - don't avoid it just because the title character is incredibly sexy! Read Full Review

    The second half of this storyline doesn't exactly offer up any surprises, but it mirrors what we had in the first with a good bit of action with the Negaspikes and then a whole lot of character fun between two very different species with different approaches to sexuality. Vartox's up front nature about things and Power Girl's giggling about it is a great combination that plays out well here and it left me grinning a lot as well, especially as Power Girl starts to realize exactly what it is he wants. Her reactions to the things he says with a straight face are quite good and watching her enjoying the situation and drinking throughout it is just right. The best work comes in watching the whole pizza joint aspect. Very fun stuff all around. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 22, 2009

    Artwise, this remains one of DC's strongest titles as Conner continues to put out some of the crispest work in the industry, but unfortunately the writing just doesn't back it up this week thanks to an abrupt plot and the writer's continued struggle to find the right balance for the main character and her many roles.
