Powr Mastrs Vol. 2 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Powr Mastrs Vol. 2 about which I write the following sentences: "This is a PictureBox comic, after all -- home of Gary Panter art books and former Fort Thunder artists galore. So it doesn't look anything like your average issue of 'Ms. Marvel' or 'Nightwing.' It looks, on first glance, like an amateurish attempt at some kind of Tolkeinesque fantasy world, with tarantula men and elves, blue princesses and submarines. 'Powr Mastrs' openly rejects traditional comic book page layouts and storytelling techniques, striving for something more primal and confrontational. I don't think this is an ugly comic -- in fact, I think it's beautiful in its own way -- but it challenges the accepted notion of comic book beauty on every single page."
