The Internet feeds cowards

Powers 14
Art by Michael Avon Oeming
Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Powers has been gaining steam recently, for a comic that has been out for five years. I think people are reading the trades and getting turned on to this series. I have only read about 3 issues, but since Michael Oeming will be at the MidJersey Comicon, I want to be more aware of his work. He is very hip about getting a great comicon going in Bordentown (where he was born), and has even approached other comic artist friends to do the show.

The art is powers is well, 'powerful', because of the great shading and expressions of the characters, especially Homicide Detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim. Bendis writes the classic crime stories, with the superhero murder twist. The interrogation scenes of Deena have the tense dialogue with lots of panels for Oeming to display emotion. And great green washed color to add to the drama.

I also liked the juxtaposition of Adrienne's on-stage rant:
"human beings-how horribly dispointing that we can be"

"The fucking Internet feeds cowards. People going online every night and just bashing the shit out of whatever they can get their hands on...I don't hear anyone say anything even close to the shit I read online. All I see are people cowering in the corner with their fucking I-pods...You're too much of a coward to make your dreams come true, so you go online and bash??"
