Power Pack is back! Katie, Julie, Jack and Alex Power have been ssuper-heroing since they were learning to tie their own shoes. It's been ages since they fought side by side as a family, but a special occasion - and an old grudge - is about to put the gang back together. There's just one teeny tiny hiccup: a brand-new law restricting underage super heroes! But surely, if the fate of all New York City is at stake, the powers that be will make an exception? Keep your fingers crossed as the Power siblings fight for their right to save the world!

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Nov 25, 2020

    This book is a blast of fresh air in the face of all the darker event type nonsense that the Big Two seem happy to produce. Power Pack is the sort of book that makes you remember why you got into comics in the first place. Take some time to look at the Marvel Universe through the eyes of the Power kids; you might just be amazed all over again. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Nov 25, 2020

    Power Pack #1 gets off to a slightly slow start thanks to being very thorough in introducing (or re-introducing) the team to its readers. Make peace with that, though, and you'll also find it thoroughly entertaining. Witty writing and gorgeous art serve to make this a delightful first act. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jacob Cordas Nov 30, 2020

    If you've been following 'Outlawed,' this is a must read. If you haven't been following, this is a must read. Regardless of if you are a child or an adult or one of those man-children that exists only in Judd Apatow movies, this is still a must read. It's cute and cuddly while still packing one hell of a right hook. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Gabriel De Jesus Nov 25, 2020

    Power Pack #1 (Ryan North, Nico Leon, & Rachelle Rosenberg) is a fun return to a fan-favorite team that leaves itself open to new readers. Though labeled as a part of Outlawed and influenced by the events spawning the event, the first issue stands strong on its own. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Nov 25, 2020

    Power Pack #1 is a fun start to the series. There's a youthful energy about it befitting the characters and it's hard to not smile while reading it. There's so much to love about this first issue and it already has me hoping for more after this run is up. Power Pack #1 is exactly what comics should be, a hell of a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Rashaad Jan 1, 1970

    Power Pack #1 is strong for an introduction to a new series. The characters are easy to understand and like. They have them living a double life that they manage to keep under wraps pretty well. It also sets up for a strong second issue. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Nov 25, 2020

    While this is intended to be the first part of a limited series, the quality of this issue inspires the hope that we might see more of the Power Pack with this creative team in the future. It's not high art, but it is a fun read and those are rare enough these days to be nurtured. Highly recommended for the young at heart at any age. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Gabriel Hernandez Nov 24, 2020

    POWER PACK #1 is a light and cheery start for the return of the super siblings. Despite Katie's bizarre characterization, the action is fun and the family interactions are amusing. The bright art pulls it all together. POWER PACK #1 is a recommended read. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Nov 28, 2020

    Power Pack #1 continues Ryan North's pattern of taking whatever characters he's working with and using them to poke a little fun at not only the characters but the medium as a whole, just would've been nice to see more connection to the bigger event it ties into. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Spencer Perry Nov 25, 2020

    The return of the Power Pack from writer Ryan North and artist Nico Leon makes for a pretty painless debut issue, delivering the thesis of the series and an explainer on the character for newcomers in a fun fashion. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Nov 25, 2020

    Ryan North and Nico Leon make a strong argument for these characters to have their own adventures, but they haven't yet given them one worth telling. Read Full Review
