Hard-boiled cop & superhero action!

Brian Michael Bendis has a gift for writing convincing dialogue for characters who you feel could step off of the page at any given moment. This, the first volume of his 'Powers' series, is a non-stop thrill ride with gravity-defying heroics, hardnosed cops and some foul language too!

A fantastic spin on the superhero genre in comics, mixed with a lot of hard boiled detective noir. A brilliant series of books about Christian Walker, former superhero with one hell of a past partnered up with the awesomely foul mouthed rookie Deena Pilgrim. In comic form it was legendary for its wit and humor and letters column, in collected form it is legendary for all the same things except for the letters page, but what you get with the brilliant first chapter are some truely excellent DVD style extras that give an insight into the creation of one of the finest series out there today. Bendis' style is quick, punchy and like listening to people talk in person, which is married beautifully to Mike Omeng's dark stylised and noirish inks. Sick of superheroes? This book shows a distinctively dirtier side of the trade, a must for anyone who likes a different take in their comics.
