We're so inundated with new comics coming out each week that sometimes it's easy to skip over some of the new books coming out. Summer is the perfect time for binge-reading and I'm here to tell you about a book that's worth your time. This week I'm talking about Power UP! from BOOM! Box, written by Kate Leth, with art by Matt Cummings. The story is a bright and quirky one, something fun to read for sure.
Here's some words from the writer herself:
…and the actual description:
"It has been foretold that four noble warriors of incredible strength would be gifted with cosmic abilities at a moment of planetary alignment…which, yeah, something definitely went wrong here. Amie is a disaffected twentysomething, Kevin is a washed-up athlete past his prime, Sandy's a mother of two teenagers, and Silas…is a goldfish. Just a normal goldfish. Are we sure we read that prophecy right?"
I read this when it was an ongoing series, but I'd definitely read it again. In fact, I think it would probably be better read in this form anyway. Leth writes a script that provides us with comedy and surprise. Matt Cummings art is all kinds of whimsical.
The Power UP! TP collects the entire limited series. Here's hoping we'll be able to see Leth and Cummings work together on a project in the near future. Check out a preview below and be sure to pick up your copy this Wednesday, June 22nd.
