World's finest: Huntress & Power Girl #0 Comic Review

For my next mini-review,
I am sticking to the Earth 2 theme and reviewing Huntress and Power Girl #0.
This issue was written by Paul Levitz and drawn by Kevin Maguire and Wes Craig.
The story is titled Beginnings and it means just what it says.  Before there was the Huntress, their was Robin, daughter to Batman and Catwoman.  Before their was Power Girl, there was Supergirl, Superman's cousin from Krypton.  They became best buds after Kara stepped in and helped Robin out of a situation.  What was the situation?  You will have to get this issue to see for yourself.
I think the story was written very well and drawn wonderfully to set the mood. 
 I give this issue a rating of 4 out of 5 stars.

Earth 2 #0 Comic Review

As some of you may know, I do the comic reviews for the site,  
Well, sometimes I have to choose from a multitude of choices. 
SO, I decided to start doing mini-reviews on this site.  A mini-review is for the books I enjoyed and think you will as well. 
My major reviews will still go up at somewhatnerdy, so make sure to follow both sites.

    For my first mini-review, I choose issue #0 of the Earth 2 series from DC Comics New 52 line-up.
The story is titled a Hero's Tale and it is written by James Robinson and drawn by Tomas Giorello.  The story is told from the perspective of Terry Sloan aka Mr. 8, who is a member of the league of heroes who are trying to stop Darkseid's invasion of Earth 2.  Well, Terry is all about survival of the fittest and he has figured out a way to prolong his life.  How he does this is down right evil.  He turns on the League and and does a dimensional jump as Earth 2 is destroyed.  To be known as a hero or villain is of little consequence to Terry, for his main goal is to make the world a stronger world no matter the cost.

    Great Art + Great Writing = a damn good book!  5 out of 5 stars.
