    This issue of Power Girl exemplifies Amanda Conner's and Paul Mounts' ability to illustrate not only cute but also dramatic action. The technobabble associated with Satanna's weapons convinces me that they will indeed spell trouble for a Kryptonian, and the arrival of the cavalry evinces a cohesiveness in this title that's sadly lacking in everything else DC publishes. Honestly though? Power Girl could have tongue-kissed Hal Jordan and Jimmy Olsen, and these revolting moments still wouldn't have affected the rating because "No way, I'm not going to get my butt kicked by Big Birds..."

    I've said it before and I'll continue saying it until everyone I know is reading this series, there is not a superhero title on the stands that is as much fun as Power Girl. That alone should make you read it. When you add in the brilliance of Amanda Conner's artwork, there isn't a single reason this comic is not on your pull list. This issue is just another fine example of that. Read Full Review

    This is a fun, entertaining issue of "Power Girl" that reminds me of a Spider-Man comic if you ignore Kara's lack of romantic problems. Her personal life is a mess and her superhero life isn't much better. To anyone who claims to hate the overly violent and darker superhero comics out there: this is the book for you.

    Power Girl continues to play in either new characters or some fun second and third string characters we don't see all that often. Gray and Palmiotti breathe a different kind of life into them, keeping them who they are but setting them in a storyline that's serious but has that edge of humor about it that works. Satanna and her zoo crew aren't exactly huge favorites but it's nice to see her actually formulating a halfway decent plan and getting some good gear with which to carry it off. Power Girl for her part is getting used and abused pretty hard these days and this is no exception. She's certainly in that mode of not being able to catch a break and she really needs to, almost like she needs another of those girls nights out in order to get away from all the insanity for just a little bit in order to be normal. There's a lot of fun here overall and somewhere towards the end of it, you will believe a pachyderm can fly. Read Full Review
