• Hey guys, what's up? Jack "MASS MASTER" Power here, and I'm narrating this issue of Power Pack, so they also let me do the solicit! JULIE narrated the last issue, and we all saw how well THAT went (aw, just kidding, Julie) (...unless?), so it's time for the big guns! Let's master some mass in this thing!!
•  Anyway, bad news, Massheads - in this issue I get PLAYED by my HATERS into FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE against someone who is trying to MESS UP MY ENTIRE FAMILY, so let's just say: Things get a little TOO real!
•  Also there's a special guest star...WOLVERINE!! He's on the cover. I tried to get more

    The more this series goes on, it's hard to imagine a more perfect team for thePower Packrevival than North and Leon. Read Full Review

    A truly perfect example of a series that everyone should be reading. Fun for the whole family, potentially only held back by a word density that is easily ignored. Read Full Review

    The situation of the Powers family gets a whole lot dicier as a very familiar metallic mutant with a pentent for slicing arrives to lend a hand. Read Full Review

    It's a damn shame this is only a mini-series. North and Leon are a perfect team in reviving the Power Pack for the modern day. This comic, and this issue, are filled with so much fun and some truly enjoyable character moments. I didn't even mind the gratuitous Wolverine cameo because North has so much fun with it!

    This issue makes one thing clear though, North is best at writing Power Pack as a group talking through their problems and acting in their familial roles rather than as the heroes, which is fine but somehow less interesting overall. Read Full Review

    This series started strong and I thought it might have been some kind of mistake. This is Power Pack, after all. We’re now four issues in and it has consistently delivered perfectly paced, refreshingly fun, surprisingly clever adventure that, in my opinion, is among the best content hitting the spinner racks.

    If you’re looking for the gritty 90’s revival, look elsewhere, but this book does a great job of showing that thoughtfully crafted characters and meaningful stakes can be achieved with a lighthearted tone. I don’t love the premise of the “Outlawed” event, which feels a little bit too familiar, but this creative team seems to have figured out just how to make it work. I really like it.

    Jack relates how the family escaped from the Wizard. They survived, but without powers, and they put in an SOS to Wolverine to help them plan a counterattack. It's a simplistic story, but the telling of it is delightful. This issue pulls a great trick with its characterization of its narrator. Jack's initial vlogging conceit is the most obnoxious thing in the world. But then the way he interacts with his siblings tears through him to show a real heart of gold. It's a real Fall-In-Love-Moment for Jack.

    This was pretty good, but man, so many words.
