Worlds' Finest #18 came out this week and wrapped up the storyline with the tattooed super-powered arsonist while continuing to delve deeper into the storyline of Power Girl's unpredictable power lapses. Like most Worlds' Finest issues, this was a decent book with some nice moments. If you are wondering if I am damning with faint praise, it felt that way when I typed it. I feel like this could be an incredible book, a book that wows me. The characters have interesting backgrounds and play off each other well. And the art on the book has for the most part been very good. I suppose I should be happy that the book is entertaining.

My initial concern with the book was the never-ending 'escape back to Earth 2' plot that seemed to never go anywhere. So I am glad that writer Paul Levitz has seemed to move farther away from that. This last arc was definitely set on Prime Earth without a whiff of Apokolips or boom tubes. And the characterization of the two leads continues to be the high point of this book, even if they feel different from prior Huntresses and Power Girls. Even this issue, Levitz answers another of my critiques ... that it is hard to find an opponent that suits the different power levels of the heroes. But,as usual, my overall feel was 'not bad' rather than 'fantastic'. It comes so close!

The art is by RB Silva and I just don't think his current style works for this book. There is some nice work on panel shape, layout, and construction. But the overall looks seems too jagged and rough for the material. The cover by Emanuela Lupacchino is stunning and stood out nicely on the racks.
