Power Pack (1984-1991) #8 by Louise Simonson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Surprising nobody who’s read my other Power Pack reviews, I thought this was wonderful.
Power Pack team up with Cloak & Dagger to take down a drug cartel in New York city. And the kids teach Cloak & Dagger to be merciful and not, you know, just kill all the bad guys. Because doing that would have robbed the Power kids of their innocence in much the same way that the drug cartel robbed Cloak & Dagger of their humanity…and Cloak & Dagger are better than that.
And that’s when this series is at its best, when the innocence of these children is juxtaposed with the darkness of New York and the heroes that police its underworld.
Oh, and Katie prancing around at the end pretending to be Dagger is simply adorable!
