This was a much more subdued issue that the previous
two.  It is ironically fitting
considering what Powerhaus is doing in this issue. 

 

This issue felt like set-up for something bigger later
on.  Based on the end of the issue, I
doubt one the characters here is done in this story like they say they
are.  So far, each of the issue covers
have given us a heads-up of which Dv8 character we’re going to focus on: issue
one focused on Copycat, issue two on Bliss, and here we focus on
Powerhaus.  It’s a nice story structure
because each of the kids gets their time in the spotlight. 

 

Rebekah Isaacs art continues to be solid and she does some
beautiful landscapes in this one as well. 
You can tell by her attention to facial expressions that she’s really
paying attention to Brian Wood’s script and accurately conveying the emotion of
what’s being said in the dialogue.

 

Powerhaus is a character I really don’t know much
about.  Wood does a great job of catching
us up on what his powers are and also deals with some of the consequences of
his particular power.  You can tell Wood
really thought about how these powers would affect each character.

 

Overall, a good issue but I know some bigger is coming.  I have a feeling that each of our little
stops with each character will build to something really cool here when all is
said and done.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 4 - Very Good
