My brush with Power Girl up to this point, were image hits on Google that mostly made me question her style of outfit. But don’t judge a book by the cover, right?
Because what you might miss is the beautiful intrepetation of a lovely woman, who sometimes just wants to relax away from her duties with a nice cup of coffee in her hands.
Straumoy did well with using an outsider POV to characterize her, and oh boy do I love the writing style.
“Yes Alfred?” her tone had a stiff and forced politeness to it, “No, that wasn’t me. Uh-huh, well you can tell Mr Wayne that he can kiss my-”
She picked up the cup as her eyes asked Edward if the payment was in order and he gave her a thumbs up. Mouthing a ‘thank you’ the woman rolled with her eyes at the other half of the conversation before she retreated to a small table by the window.
It leaks character and motion, and I’d recommend people to check it out, even if they don’t know a thing about Power Girl.
