My almost-8-year old daughter loved Takio!

This is not a dumbed-down comic; it’s a great action series that comics-reading kids and adults (and those in between) will love.

It's a lot of fun, of the sort that adults and kids can equally enjoy.

As a comics fan who believes passionately in diversity, who believes the world needs a lot more superhero stories starring women and other people who are not more straight white dudes, I was excited when I heard about this series, starring two young sisters, one of whom is adopted and of Asian descent. I was even more excited that the series was going straight to graphic novel format and directly into bookstores.

As a fan of Brian Michael Bendis' previous work, I was just as excited to see "Takio" promoted as being in the vein of "Ultimate Spider-Man."

Gloriously, the actual book lived up to my hype on all counts. It's a great origin story with a lot of humor, and the characters are wonderfully drawn, both in the literal sense by Michael Avon Oeming and in the psychological by Mr. Bendis. It's a lot of fun, of the sort that adults and kids can equally enjoy.

This is a fantastic first episode in what I hope shall prove a long-running series, and inspire many more like it.

Interesting story. I got the second arc not knowing there was a first. I liked it enough to go back and pick up the first story arc.

Boys and girls will love this awesome comic about two sisters turned super, ala spiderman. They are 7 and 14 I think, and part of an interracial adoptive family, whose father has recently passed away. So they have family love and family loss informing their characters. They are smart and funny and the writing feels age-appropriate, but also intelligent and funny. Adults will love it right along with their kids, and because the sisters are such separate ages, it's appeal to a big age range of kids too. Really 6-99 year olds with love love love love this. Buy this for your boys or girls, especially if they love superhero stories!

I really enjoy the team of Bendis & Oeming. This is a simple, fun and understandable story that can be digested quite easily. All the characters are real and multi-dimensional. The protagonists come across as real girls and sisters.

I bought a copy for my niece, who is your typical smart, hyperactive and semi-mischievous 7 year old. She read it twice on the first day. I'm hoping that it will spur her to read other comics as well.

Format: Hardcover
The team behind POWERS creates a new spin on all-ages superhero comics with TAKIO, a fun-filled series about two bickering sisters just trying to a) save the world, and b) avoid getting grounded.

Taki and Olivia are both adopted sisters in a multicultural family. Their father has recently died, and their mother is doing the best she can. When the girls happen to be visiting Taki’s best friend’s house, a weird accident occurs (the best friend’s father is a scientist, so naturally, an odd explosion is a distinct possibility here). The two sisters gain telekinetic superpowers. Alas, so does the best friend, and it turns out she’s a little on the evil side. Taki and Olivia go to work to defeat the menace…all while minding their mom’s curfew and avoiding punishment.

As much as POWERS is an adults-only delight, TAKIO is a thrilling all-ages adventure that is truly funny, truly well-drawn, and truly exciting storytelling. This is not a dumbed-down comic; it’s a great action series that comics-reading kids and adults (and those in between) will love.
