who is reading Power Girl?
I read it but I am a few issues behind. I am still sort of annoyed Jimmy Palmiott/Amanda Conner are no longer doing the book, I was really fond of their run! I will still give new creative team a chance though. Plus as some posts (Mechanical_Ape) above confirm it still sounds pretty good, so fingers crossed. (as well as thank you fellow posters)
" hmm...power girl can anyone tell me if it's good read still new to the comic book thing. "
Hrrm, well do you like Power Girl? I am not sure how much the last couple of issues have changed, but what I have read has also been quite fun. Power Girl reminds me a lot of She Hulk, another favorite character of mine. I am more of a Batman over Superman kind of comic reader though, and then a Harley Quinn over Batman, and then a Marvel over DC type reader.
I would say if the Power Girl character interests you lightly, and you don't mind a fun book, it should be good start for someone new.
" I do. "
Ah well we have similar tastes, lol ^_^
It's a fun book, and I guess that's what I like most about it. If you're looking for violent action and grim storylines, you probably won't enjoy it. If you're looking to see Superman get pooped out of a dinosaur, then you should pick up this month's issue.

LMAO, I am going to go get my stack of comics now to find that.
I like action and grim, but a balance. Like you say, I think Power Girl, I sort of want some witty light fun and character savvy writing.
And having her admire Superman doesn't demean her any more than having Wonder Woman admire PG herself demeans Diana. Nothing she said about him is out of line with how the general hero population feels about him, or how someone who is his sort of cousin would feel about him.

"Was it because the creative team changed after issue #12? Yeah I can see that but issue #21 marked the end of the Generation Lost tie-ins. Issue #22 was pretty good. You should check it out. "
I used to read it..."
Yeah, thats prob the main reason why I stopped reading it =P
If you go for things like Zatanna having a "magic" line on her cell, or her ring tone being "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic", as sort of throwaway lines, or dinos wearing lumberjack outfits and carrying axes, well then Power Girl is the title for you!
If you like grim and gritty, it might not be...
I enjoy power girl's book. The first 12 issues were fun. I havent read any of the new stuff yet (I collect in trade, and the new one doesnt come out until June) However, from what i've seen on scans here, Winnick keeps the fun light vibe that the first run had. Its a breath of fresh air from all the grim gritty angsty psuedo-realistic comics out there.
I've read the first two compilation books, which together include #1-12. They were amazingly funny. Loved the writing and the art was great. I also own issues #19-24, but I refuse to read them until "Power Girl: Bomb Squad" is released this June. (Containing #13-18) I hope the writing is still good in issues #13 onward. The art looks different, but I still like it.
