Episode 220: Power Pack

By CBI

This week, I decided we should head back to the 80s. Among all the X-Men and Avengers comics, stood a particularly charming series that ran for a number of issues in the early to mid 80s: Power Pack. For those of us who experienced it back then, the series holds a special place in our memories. I was pleased to see that despite some of the pitfalls which plague most comics of that decade, Power Pack still holds up beautifully. I highly recommend it, especially as an introduction to comics for young readers.

Our What We’re Reading segment was shorter than normal this week, though we still covered some great stuff, including Old Man Logan, Thors, Mad Max and more.

Enjoy.
