In Review: Project Superpowers Vol. 3 #2

The main objective of this issue is introducing readers to the new host of The Spirit of The American flag. And she gets quite the dramatic introduction right in the heart of the chaos.

Synopsis: The world has faced the opening attack of a terrifying new power. Green Lama is the Earth’s most powerful being and he has been left in a coma. It’s up to the Project Superpowers team to come together to defend humanity. And who is the new host of The Spirit of The American Flag?

Review: Issue 2 continues the story moments from where we left off in issue one but takes a little time to introduce us to a certain part of the ocean where old space satellites go to die. Which will most likely have a point to it in future issues. But it was a nice homage to a certain infamous submariner. Nemo as in “No One”.

The main objective of this issue is introducing readers to the new host of The Spirit of The American flag. And she gets quite the dramatic introduction right in the heart of the chaos.

The Story

Rob Williams does a stunning job of moving things on from the last issue and has increased the stakes by taking Green Lama off the playing field, which leaves the rest of Project Superpowers to figure out what is going on.

The introduction of Imani Cooper is well done and I loved the panels where she is flying over a group of civilians and the explanation of the kind of hope the Spirit instills.

The introductory pages talking about a certain part of the ocean where space ships go to die is a nice touch and has me curious to see where it will go.

I also enjoyed the big reveal and cliffhanger at the close of the book where Green Lama learns who and what is behind all the drama.

The Artwork

Sergio Fernandez Davila’s artwork continues to amaze.

I loved the detail of the Devil as his nanites reformed only for him to be taken down once more, but I also loved the action sequence in which Samson calls upon his friends to guide him to his target.

The action beats were all very well drawn and the artist manages to convey a cinematic quality in the work. You can easily see all of this playing out on the big screen.

Overall

I’m still really loving these characters and the cinematic quality to the storytelling. I also enjoyed the humor coming from Samson’s blindness and the fact that he can still kick ass without the gift of sight.

If you are a lover of pulp storytelling. This is a must-have series to follow.
