  1. I am quite certain that most of these raving comments are probably regarding nostalgia from the original series.  I would find it difficult to believe that these sweeping statements could encompass 3 mediocre and 1 outstanding comic(s).

  2. @vadamowens – agreed.  The previous arc was easily the worst ever on this series. 

  3. This felt like a packed issue. When I closed it I really had the thought "That was a damn good comic!"

  4. This was just okay.  I know Bendis claims that even he can’t tell which parts he wrote and which parts Oeming wrote, but either I can pick their styles out more easily than he can, or after they started sharing writing duties it just happened to be the case that the well-written scenes alternate with ones that feature shaky dialog and gratuitous cursing (not that I object to cursing at all, but some of it just seems unnatural and out of place, like a 13 year old trying to impress someone).  I noticed that all of a sudden two or three different characters used the word "ain’t" in the space of a few pages, which just doesn’t seem consistent with the way Bendis has distinct voices for each of his characters.  I suppose I’m a little hung up on the whole split writing duties thing, but I’ve been very disappointed with this series since its return–I got back into comics when Powers was on its extended hiatus, and over that time I read every trade and loved it.  I was so excited for a monthly dose of Powers, but now that I have it, it’s just fine.  It’s not terrible, I’ve generally enjoyed the story so far, and Oeming’s art has been strong, but the writing just doesn’t have the pop that it used to, and that makes me sad.  I’m sure this book will become lovable again soon, I just wish that would happen now.
