    SURPRISINGLY GOOD : BROTHER POWER THE GEEK #1

    I was not expecting to like this book. Especially not as much as i did. Sure it has a simple plot , and the dialogue is amazingly forced, yet ... what comic from the Silver Age didn't have a simple plot and forced dialogue? Especially one that dealt with young people.

    I read in the series write up that they cancelled this book for fear that it promoted drugs, and the hippie lifestyle. Far from it. This book really shows little to no respect for the hippie lifestyle. Many times the Geek denounces it , and the narrator often calls them lazy.

    The action is good. The art by Joe Simon is pretty cool as well. The cover is really sharp. Good use of color and shadow. Also it is a Panel from the comics. I like comic covers that do that.

    One thing of note : At the beginning of the book , we are introduced to the characters as actors portraying them. I just thought that it was a decent touch. While i do not see how a rag doll can have the strength that it did because of a lightening strike, I was able to suspend disbelief long enough to enjoy.

    This is easily recommended.
