Review: Powers In Action #1
A bold new adventure awaits! Our heroes, LYNX and his sister, OCELOT, join the super team known as The HERO SQUADRON…and they are late for their first meeting. Maybe these delays are because of SUPER VILLAINS! Oh no! Looks like our heroes may have work to do before they even join the team. Will these cat-heroes fit in with the members of the HERO SQUADRON? Join us for this new SUPER HERO DIMENSION of the AW YEAH UNIVERSE told by famous cartoonist Art Baltazar.
I’ll be completely honest with you; I agreed to review Powers in Action #1 based solely on the title, having NO idea what the concept of the comic was (I didn’t even read the above text until I pasted it here after opening the comic). In short, I really went into the comic utterly blind.
It was so much fun.
Powers In Action #1 is VERY kid friendly, which is to be expected and applauded given the rating, and reads very much like a Saturday morning cartoon. Although this is a very simple story, there’s a lot of subtly to the messaging – especially at the beginning – such as when Lynx, a male superhero gets swiftly taken out by the villain leaving his sister, Ocelot, to capture the bad guy. It’s a great little touch that we all need to be reminded of; girls (or women) don’t need boys (or men) to take care of things for them.
Make no mistake about it, this is very much a comic that your kids will enjoy (or your inner child if your an adult), and perhaps is one that you should add to your pull list for the young friends in your life. But should you read it yourself if you don’t want to buy comics for kids (or have no kids to buy comics for)?
Yup. This is a genuinely fun, light comic that’s well worth adding to your collection when you want to feed your inner child.
