Comics: Good for what ails you
Powers (2014) (Marvel): I have been a big fan of Powers for years, so the return of Deena makes me dance a tiny dance of joy. New powers and heroes are emerging from everywhere, so she's got her job as a detective cut out for her.
Feathers (Boom!): This is one of those charming and quirky books that catches you by surprise in a moment of quiet. A young baby boy covered in feathers is discovered in a dark Victorian back alley by Gabriel. Though larger forces are heard arguing about the child's future, the gears are already in motion. This is a world divided by its walls and its social classes, so when young Poe meets Bianca, daughter of a city planner, the world opens up for both of them. This has a lighter, whimsical nature of Marvel's Wonderful Wizard of Oz series, with only a small touch of Victorian style, rather than the full-blown Tim Burton / Charles Dickens depressing-nightmare-treatment.
I really enjoy the writing, and I look forward to reading and exploring more of this unique world.
Until next time,
