HASH(0x9a25e3f0) out of 5 stars Amanda Conner fan! 18 Mar. 2014
By Rob D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had the JSA run of 1-4 already, but was missing some of the Amanda Conner Powergirls. Instead of getting the individual comics, I decided to get this compilation.

Very nice collection! It is about the size of a graphic novel, but about twice the thickness since there are so many comic issues collected here.

If you like Amanda Conner's artist style, as I do, I would say you'll probably enjoy this!

HASH(0x9b33eaec) out of 5 stars High-flying fun from start to finish. 3 Mar. 2015
By Lewis D. Medeiros - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Power Girl is a superheroine that no one could really decide what to do with for a while. She passed from writer to writer, her portrayal, costume, and even her figure suffering inconsistency along with her backstory at one point (she went from being an alternate-universe Kryptonian to being an Atlantean from the distant past to being a Kryptonian again). Then, with JSA Classified issues 1 through 4 and her somewhat short-lived solo series, which ran right up until the entire DC universe got rebooted in 2011, DC finally seemed to decide who the heck Power Girl is and hasn't looked back since, not even during the post-reboot Huntress/Power Girl "World's Finest" series.

Power Trip contains JSA Classified #1-4 and the first twelve issues of the Power Girl series--Power Girl's entire run under this particular handful of creative folk. Amanda Connor draws her art in an unusually whimsical, cartoonish fashion by modern superhero comic standards--which admittedly looks a bit weird when a familiar face such as Superman shows up, even if it fits characters like Power Girl, Ultra-Humanite, or Psycho Pirate just fine. The writing focuses on witty humor and playing Power Girl as a hot-headed, sarcastic, and entertainingly flawed character. The stories in this graphic novel, while not exactly tied together into a single cohesive arc, for the most part flow into each other to form a fun "day in the life of a superhero" routine that I find refreshing considering DC Comics' tendency to start superheros with really established lives and personalities. The exception is the first story arc in this collection, the titular "Power Trip," which is the first four-issue arc from JSA Classified and takes place some time before the twelve-issue chunk of the Power Girl series. Annoyingly, it ends with a cliffhanger that I suppose gets resolved in another series and another graphic novel collection under other writers and another artist prior to Power Girl #1. But that kind of thing is par for the course with superhero comics; it just prevents this collection from feeling as self-contained and self-sufficient as it could have.

If there's one irritating complaint I have for this particular story it's that it tries too hard to justify having a super-feminine, somewhat over-sexualized character design for Power Girl by hammering in feminist messages all over the place, something the Power Girl solo series in particular never really found a good balance for until very late in its two-year run. This includes but is not limited to: people always staring at Power Girl's chest and her being annoyed by it, guys hitting on her and her friend at the movies and being sassed for being disrespectful, an entire short story arc about an interstellar manly man traveling to Earth to fake a victory over a planet-eating immortal monster to woo Power Girl (admittedly one of this collection's more amusing entries), and Ultra-Humanite being generally disdainful of female intelligence whenever he gets the chance. As with the 2009 animated Wonder Woman movie, I'd be happier with this stuff if it were dialed back. The message about women being allowed to wear what they want without being viewed as objects is particularly iffy; it doesn't translate as well when it involves a *costume* like Power Girl's as opposed to street clothes. I appreciate the attempts to be progressive, but the design of the character clashes with that progressiveness to a point where it sometimes feels like Power Girl exists to shove boobs in your face and then make you feel bad about it, especially since Amanda Conner isn't shy about drawing Power Girl or her sometimes-sidekick Terra in pretty fanservicey situations at times.

Overall that's a small complaint that didn't really hinder my enjoyment much, hence the five-star rating. This collection of issues was overall more fun than the second half of Power Girl's solo run (collected in the graphic novels "Power Girl: Bomb Squad" and "Power Girl: Old Friends") and turned out to be one of the best times reading a superhero comic that I've ever had. Unless Power Girl's costume just offends you that much, I can't not recommend this one to any lover of superhero comics.

HASH(0x9c3c60c0) out of 5 stars Love Amanda Conner's Art 26 Jun. 2014
By Mark Whitehead - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Yes, some of these have turned up in other collections. Yes, I have one of those other collections. No, I don't care.

This book collects all of Amanda Conner's PG run in one volume. In this collection, you get to see several of her different techniques. She drew PG and Terra in one style, Satanna in another, Sivana in still another.

Her small vignettes that are usually happening in the backgrounds are always fun to find, and hysterical.

The writing was great, and the stories clipped right along.

One of my favorite sequences is Stinky getting a bath. I'm guessing Ms. Conner has/had a cat. She drew Stinky's reaction precisely the way my cats reacted to baths.

Well worth the price.

HASH(0x9a6f88c4) out of 5 stars Power Up-grade 10 Aug. 2014
By Tim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'd read the Power Girl 1-12 series before and loved it, but hadn't seen the JSA until I got this new "Power Trip" edition which was nice to have. Over all great book, good price, would've been nice if it had included the Terra trade paper back, but I've already got that so I can't complain
