I don’t want this to be a limited series. I want this to keep going after #5, or for Marvel to commission this creative team to create an ongoing Power Pack series straight after this finishes. Because I love this.
This issue focuses particularly on Julie Power, a character I, admittedly, had a huge crush on when I was eight years old. She was my first fictional character crush. She’s aged a lot better than me, but to be fair she’s also aged a lot less than me. Because comics.
First and foremost Power Pack are a family, and that’s something that Ryan North clearly understands and captures really well. Also, more than most other super heroes, they’re the same people both in and out of costume.
The art by Nico Leon is also superb, and really evokes the work of June Brigman, while at the same time feeling very modern.
Really, this book is a treat and I don’t want it to end.
