Review: Power Cubed #1
What if you had a piece of technology that created anything you could possibly want, and all you had to do was imagine it? What would you wish for? For Kenny Logan, his first wish is to survive his eighteenth birthday! His unique matter-reinterpreting device has attracted the attention of a bumbling Nazi scientist with plans for world domination and an elite government agent who is hell bent on acquiring the device to stop an alien invasion at any cost. Aaron Lopresti delivers a comical coming-of-age tale in a fantastic sci-fi universe!
Nazi scientists, alien technology, and a covert government agency. That may seem like a random assortment of things that would go together like fire and water. Well it manages to work in this odd yet brilliant way. Written by Aaron Lopresti, he manages to mix in all that with slight bits of humor, and a young man with complicated relationship with his genius father gives the story a unique feeling.
The artwork by Lopresit (who does double duty here) has an old Saturday morning cartoon feel to it.
Overall the world is bright, and vibrant. That bolsters the cartoonish feel the world has. Oddly enough that manages to blend with the story extremely well.
