Comic Recs for 3/23/2017

Empowered is one of those books that is consistently good and also almost unheard of among the general population. That's a pity because it does a fine job of skewering super-type tropes in clever and humorous ways. The current story has Emp and gal-pal Ninjette facing off against the machinations of a magical girl gone rogue, using love as a weapon. This book is not for kids, but adults would love it. If I have a critique, it's that the art feels a bit inconsistent. 3 out of 4 stars.

FutureQuest is a great slice of nostalgia for fans of a certain age and a fun book for people who don't know anything about the Hannah-Barbera superhero universe. It brings together characters as diverse as Space Ghost, Frankenstein Jr., the Impossibles and the Herculoids as they battle a parasitic alien invader. Nice art. Great story. 4 out of 5 stars.
