Palmiotti, Gray, and Conner did the impossible…

They turned me into a Power Girl fan.


From Power Girl #4, words by Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti, pictures by Amanda Conner, colors by Paul Mounts. Headbutt: heard round the world.

I’ll have something smarter on this later, but I’m wonderfully feverish and sick lately. I just wanted to put this out there, because it’s an amazing book. I’m working on a Thing in the background, something I think would tie into a look at Power Girl very nicely, but for now, I’ll just have to tease.

And sneeze.

  1. The PG book still doesn’t impress me really. But if they were to start a Supergirl ongoing featuring the puppy and kitten Krypto and Streaky I’d be interested in that…

  2. David, are you digging their Supergirl in Wednesday Comics at all?

    I didn’t like it at first, but the last two issues with cranky Aquaman made me an instant fan… so much so that I’ll probably go seek out Power Girl, which I overlooked/dismissed entirely.

  3. @Justin: Yeah, I’m a big fan of that one, too. It’s the kind of comics we should see more of, rather than continuity-heavy blood’n’guts. The market gets what the market wants, though.

  4. my pull list is kinda big right now (damn you and your addictive comics Johns) but I’m sure to make a note to eventually check out the tpb

  5. also head butts seem to be getting more popular all of a suddent (Invincible #64’s spectacular end to the Conquest fight, the preview for the new Nova)

  6. I didn’t like the revised Ultra-Humanite origin bits but the fun parts are well.. fun.

  7. I think Power Girl is pretty good too, David.

  8. I quite honesty can’t say no to anything involving Amanda Conner’s sweet, funny and detailed artwork. She’s one of my top five favorite artists for just her facial expressions alone. The fact that Power Girl is flying around being generally kick-ass with a grouchy cat and a charmingly naive sidekick just adds icing to the artwork cake.
