Judd Winick’s run on Power Girl continues, and its brilliant combination of action mystery and comedy shows why Power Girl is one of the most unique books in the DC comics stable right now.


I, (along with a lot of others people) thought this book would go down hill after the creative team changed, but it might have gotten better, and here is why. Power Girl is a unique character in the DC universe, she can be both serious and goofy, a loner and the ultimate team player, feisty or warm. She’s also unique in the fact that she has connections to almost every “family” in the DC universe. Justice League, Justice society, Earth One Earth Two Power Girl you’d be hard pressed to find a major DC character who Power Girl doesn’t know. Winick’s run has put this element of the character on full display, especially this issue. In one issue we saw Booster Gold Blue Beetle, Fire and Ice, Hour man, Cyclone, Batman just to name a few.   


As much as I loved Conner and Palmiotti’s run I felt that it was in a bubble separate from the DC universe as a whole.  To me this is a waste of the character’s potential in some aspects. Power Girl is what I call a nexus character, a character in which many branches of the DC Universe intersect.


Another thing I like about this book is the art. Sami Basri was a virtual unknown before penciling this book, but I believe he might very well be one of DC’s best new talents. His art is rare combination of hauntingly ethereal and fun. Basri’s dream-like art works particularly well in this issue because of the story, and it’s theme of “lost memories”.
