Good Stuff is exactly how i feel about the book aswell. I had the pleasure of reading the image-era series through a friend of mine and enjoyed it immensely. Glad you mentioned DC's Gotham Central since its another great series, (that died before its time) with the similar concept of a police-procedural in a superpowered world.
Both series deserve more attention

I've always wanted to read Powers. Maybe I'll check it out.

I've never heard of The Powers, I guess I'll have to take a read based on ya'lls recommindation.

I agree that Powers is great.  I love comics that examine what it is to be a superhero from our perspective ( non powerd people's perspective ).  Same reason I love The Watchmen, and why I've been reading The Boys.

After watching this last night I actually went an bought the first book, haven't started it yet but looking forward to it. Loved The Watchmen, obviously, and as for The Boys, I had seen something about it recently, it's a good read then?

I've been enjoying this title.  It does feel like it's lost a little momentum from when they first started but it's still one of my favorite titles each month.

Each month?  When is the next issue coming out?  I've looked everywhere for info on the new issues, but they haven't released anything for months!

After re-reading I realized that my memory had shaped it as a much better book. That's not a slam but high praise. How many comics affect you so deeply that your brain starts lying to you?
