Good Story, Average Production,
This review is from: Powers: The Definitive Hardcover Collection, Vol. 2 (Hardcover)
Well, I've been waiting over three years for this book.
The story is very good. It is definitely darker than what is in the first volume, but it is intriguing to the end. The story has a couple unexpected twists and takes the reader to unexpected places, which I appreciate.
Unfortunately, we had to wait a long time for this collection, supposedly to get the production correct. That be fine if there weren't still problems with the book. The most glaring is the printing of a page twice. More subtle is the jagged look of the line art at times. It's as if the oversized volume was created from scans of the regular comics, so the lines aren't very crisp. This is especially true of a lot of the text. It's distracting considering they had such a long time to get it "right".
Hopefully the next volume will come out before 2012.
