POWER GIRL 21
Thank goodness Bruce is back to clean up this mess, oooh Lordy!
PBP reactions if you read it...
0 GREAT cover whether you guessed the stiff or not.
1 Enjoyable opening page. Give the serious ish an appropriately placed dash of humour. And quite funny moments and PG-centric at that.
2-3 Too space indulgent recap spread. Those 2 pages would felt EXACTLY the same in 1 page - and still have been somewhat indulgent.
4 Okay title page though a footnote to chronology was sorely needed with the crossovers.
5 Really liked Cho's [everyman] dialogue here.
6-7 Been there, done that, forgot the tshirt, with DickBatman. If it was purely intended to evoke frustration with Max's success at inflicting deja vu then kudos.
8-12 Pages of next plot setup involving probably some gloppy gruesome for Power Girl and Dr Ophelia Day probably some ravishing rival for Karen. Kinda bland.
13 Flashback with to last meeting Blue Beetle had great interaction with Karen. And an AWESOME background visual of The Flash!!!
14-15 Flashback with to last meeting Blue Beetle not so great 'cuz it had a spot of lazy layout and more annoying decompression feel to it but the content was pleasantly poignant.
16 Been there, done that, forgot the tshirt, with DickBatman. Oh no, here we go again... no wait...
17 Bruce is back to clean up this mess, oooh Lordy!
18-20 Bruce struts his stuff to show that he is The World's Greatest Detective . Thanks to his iconic presence he gets his chum to see the truth and they can finally move on with the plot [pun attempted]. It took 3 more pages and the annoying hopeitsoversoon visual confusion of having 2 Batmen to do it. That and the very pleasant art made it a worthwhile read.
Still missing my brother...
