Powers Vol One, Who Killed Retro Girl TPB is a very interesting book, its a noir Police procedural drama, that happens to follow a Police Division that investigates Power related crimes. It takes Superhero comics down to ground level, and totally reinvents the genre. From the very beginning you get the message this is not your usually superhero comic book at all.
Powers is from the pen of Brian Michael Bendis who has to be one of the best dialogue writers in comics today. The book follows the investigations of Detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim. Most of the story involves a lot of walking, talking, clue following and the like; it is after all a Police procedure drama. It doesn’t sound all that enthralling, but add the stylised Batman Anime art work of Michael Avon Oeming, the banter of Bendis and you have an amazing comic book on your hands.
