Takio is the first all ages graphic novel series from Marvel's Icon imprint and the first new creator owned book by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming since their award-winning, long-running Powers.

Takio tells the story of two sisters in a multiracial, adoptive family who are driving each other insane!!! Their overprotective mother makes them walk to school together, eat lunch together, and play together. They can't get away from each other!! But when a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime accident gives them real-life superpowers, these two sisters become the first actual superheroes in the entire world. And it is awesome!!

Now the sisters have to learn to get along so they can save the world and get home by six... or they are so grounded. This fast-talking, whip smart new graphic novel series will thrill fans of Bendis' Ultimate Spider-man!

Two sisters (Taki & Olivia) gain super powers by accident and must decide what to do about their newly acquired abilities...

The same creative team behind the series Powers ...

This isn't a bad book..  Rather, as I turned the last page, I was just left feeling entirely indifferent to it.  I'm usually the sort who, once I buy volume 1 of a series by an author I like, I'll at least give it a chance through volume 2; but with this one I"m not so rue.I felt that Bendis restrained himself SO much here in order to remain "all ages" appropriate that he loses the older age group audience.  This is a big problem that many creators have when getting into this subgenre, especiall...
