Power Girl #10 - DC
This is a silly issue. That boy that took the pictures of Power Girl coming out of the Starrware building, and changing into uniform . . he's decided that he wants to blackmail her. But it's not how you'd think. First he wants her to come to his comic shop with him when he goes to get his weekly books. Secondly, he wants he help with a bully, and his gang, that has been tormenting him. And finally . . he wants her help in asking a girl for a date. You know . . typical teenaged boy stuff. But first, Power Girl has to deal with Satanna. At the end of last issue we saw them fighting and then Terra shows up. Well Terra helps to get her off of PG's case, but . . in the more personal events that follow the fight, Karen notices that Atlee is acting funny. Just little odd personality traits. Then later when Satanna attacks again, but this time not with her ani-men . . this time she uses Manhawks. They're usually something that Hawkman deals with. Anyways, during the battle she notices that Terra is a little more blood-thirty than usual. And by the end of the book, she finally pieces it together . . somehow Satanna has put the Ultra-humanites brain into Terra's body. Now she just has to figure out how to fix it, and find out what they did with Terra's brain. The thing I really like about this book is the humor that Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti put into their scripts. At some points it's almost a slap-stick type of humor. But . . I think it's perfect for this book, and this character. That, coupled with Amanda Connor's rather whimsical art, and . . it really makes for a fun read. Hopefully these guys stay on this book for a long time to come.
