I enjoy it. The tone of the book changed considerably when the creative team changed. I enjoyed it with the old group and I think the current team is also doing very well on the book.

I love power girl's personality, along with the new art after issue 12. but not really that interested the storyline with maxwell lord involved in.

i do, i know most people aren't happy with the max lord story going on now but i think it's pretty good, i never read JLI so it's pretty intresting to see her interact with them, actually might and go find some JLI trades in the future

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)

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.

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.

@Unwritten Duck: Yeah, well, like all the most interesting characters, she has flaws.  One of them is some level of insecurity, that seems to crop up most often when she's in close contact with Superman.  Which is not all that surprising, considering her history.  True, she should have figured it out on her own, but then again, Superman has a lot more experience with magic than she does, and seems to know how it feels.  She might not.
 
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.

i enjoy the Powergirl series, the first writer and artist of the series were really good but the stories has continued to be pretty enjoyable.

#19 Posted by Hot (12 posts) - - Show Bio
Fun, fun, fun... Yeah, I read it.
#20 Posted by zephyr (22 posts) - - Show Bio

Powergirl's series is amazing fun; before i read it; I felt like she was always serious ya now; but her series fleshes out her personality more. It's soooooooo fun to read.

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.

Like someone else alluded to, PG always seemed like this kind of humorless fighting machine but seeing her humorous side has been awesome.  It's my favorite title now

Took me awhile to adjust to the current team but so far I like it. I do prefer the original team run but this new team isn't bad. Things have started to pick up for the series since issue 17 and has gotten better since that issue.

#25 Posted by Gold Dust Boi (516 posts) - - Show Bio

Is this Power Girl better then the Marvel one? Because she was pretty lame...

#26 Posted by ZoddGuts (74 posts) - - Show Bio

It's a fun series, more people need to check it out.

#27 Posted by achilles100 (205 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

@GundamHeavyarms: Winck does indeed keep the light fun vibe, while throwing in some actual superheroics.  But like I said, magic dinosaurs...definitely not on the grim and gritty side of things.

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.


Primarily, I love Power Girl because she doesn't seem as "near perfect" as her cousin, and well... as I've said, the humor is fabulous.  I'm actually not that big a fan of the whole enlarged chest thing, but it makes for some great jokes, and I'm glad the writers have had fun with that.  Some of the "solutions" that PG comes up with, or is forced to choose are quite different.  The cameo of four television characters in issue #4 was a great highlight.  I'm looking forward to continued humor, and hoping for increased plot complexity in the future.

Let's just say if you like fun, then you would love this book. Easily one of the best books being published. While The Gray/Palmiotti Conner run might be a bit better, Winnick and Basri hae been doing a great job too.

it got better after the maxwell lord event.
