I really like the art and coloring but this issue fell flat in what is ultimately just a serviceable introduction but I will be continuing on with the series because I see the potential.

Power Up is a new 6 limited issues series created by Kate Leth as the writer and Matt Cummings as the illustrator and released by BOOM! Box comics.

For a starting issue, we have a small amount of interdiction to the main character Amie, who is quite nice for a main lead. She's just funny and goofy a little bit irresponsible but hey aren't we all that by the end of the day? Unfortunately, it doesn't help capture enough interest in the next issues for a first time read. Sure, there's lots of inter

The worst thing about this first installment is that it is over too soon. I WANT FOUR HUNDRED MORE. Looking forward to the next one! Kate Leth's writing is delightfully paired with Matt Cummings' adorable artwork. I like Amie as a doesn't-quite-have-this-whole-adulthood-thing-together-yet protagonist, and I'm especially excited for Kevin's storyline!

Cute illustration and colour, good setup for this mysterious power and stranger in a suit speaking a foreign language. The main character Amie is normal enough looking, not a scrawny blonde heroine as usual. But the premise just didn't grab me. A lot of series I've started (Lunberjanes) instantly grabbed my attention. This first issue is good but I found it to be lacking that something special.

C: I need to read a couple more issues to see if I actually like this. The first issue was really short, and I don't have a good sense of what is going on at all. I like some of the art, but not all of it and that is a little confusing.

Can't wait for the second one!

Loved the art and the characters. I found this title very enjoyable and it left me wanting more. I will definitely be reading the rest of the issues as soon as they're released.
