Wow, someone's been playing Porta,l I take it. What with the sassy AI trying to kill someone and all.
Am I the only one who started hearing Sanctuarys voice as GLADoS once it started getting insistent about following the blue lights?
Supergirl's costume is still the most ridiculous thing I've seen in the new52, outside of Bronze Tiger being an actual tiger... Kal El gets battle armor and Supergirl gets a bikini? And are the boobs all people like about Powergirl? sheesh. I mean was it really that big of a deal that they covered them up?
I don't think you know what a bikini is.
Ha! you're right she gets a one piece bathing suit, not a bikini.
I wonder if Sanctuary will tell them about some possibly real cake next?
Am I the only person who liked Power Girl's new costume, I mean I like the old one is great and everything but the new one wasn't bad just a different. It is not like she wore it much anyway...
Has this book always been this fun?? 'Cause I might've been missing out.
No It has been a bit more serious. This is the first issue with Micheal Alan Nelson as the writer instead of Mike Johnson and it definitely has a much lighter tone. That being said, the first 20 issues are really good but mostly lack the humor here and are more angst-filled by focusing on the fact that she is a teenager from another planet. It is probably my favorite series in the entire New 52
Man that boob window really is ridiculous, but then again so is Supergirls outfit, I mean the crotch area doesn't leave much to the imagination... Marvel has done a great job recently redesigning their female heroes, like Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch and Psylocke all look great I think.. perhaps DC should take a hint
@stormbox: That's also fair.
Since we started talking I've read a few more interviews and such and I'm pretty sure nothing like a death is going to happen. The new writer has discussed making this book more light-hearted and it looks like if this is the tone of a "death" story, then what follows should be equally entertaining.
I think it's pathetic that APPARENTLY Power Girl can only be cool or popular in comics if she exposes her cleavage. Sheesh!
I really think this costume would have worked if it was used.
your doctor really needs to adjust your dosage
@sinestro2814: It was not lame. For one thing, Amanda Conner explained in interview how it has a positive message showing a woman of a very busty curvy body type and her being taken seriously, and us caring about her.
It's very strange to vilify a body type. People come in all shapes and sizes, and there are women with a JJ-cup bra etc much bigger than Power Girl's have been depicted.
Even in this preview Power Girl looks much more like the usual body type you see in DC comics. Personally I would like to see her go back to how she was drawn in her series by Conner or Basri etc.
Long story short, if you're vilifying a person for having breasts of a certain size or a certain body type, well, that's just the wrong way to look at things. If you think certain body types shouldn't be drawn, well, that's wrong.
This book looks awesome! And it's actually really sad when Powergirl is written far better (closer to the one that we know and love) outside of her own book.Dead Giveaway (yes I've made the reference).
Is this what I've been missing out on with this book?!
Once I heard one of my fave authors, Michael Alan Nelson was writing this book I instantly told my comic shop to start me at No. 20 for my pull list!
I've gone back thru the back issues to catch up and even slogged through the horrible H'el on Earth story arc that included the Supes and Superboy books too.
This is gonna be interesting seeing Nelson's trademark witty yet horrific style in this series. I still don't know how he's going to fit Cthulhu or Luci Jennifer Inagcio Das Neves in it :)
I am prepared! Looking so forward to it!
I'm amused by how much of the conversation in this Supergirl thread is about Power Girl and her book/look (instead of about the panels/Supergirl).
I am looking forward to this issue. Hopefully this book is good enough to earn a spot on my pull list (perhaps to replace Mara, when that ends).
