Your dad will love Power Girl!

Power Girl is one of DC Comics' more obscure characters. Since her debut in 1975, she's had at least three distinctly different origin stories. Is she Superman's cousin from a parallel world? Well, for a while, she was. Is she the granddaughter of an ancient Atlantean sorcerer? Yeah, she was for a few months anyway. Is she a pawn in a game of cosmic chess that threatens the known universe? Yes, at least for the time being.

But regardless, for most male comic book readers (myself included), there's no denying Power Girl's, uh, extraordinary "charms." And this new softcover collection of some of her adventures over the past 30 years, simply titled Power Girl, offers a lot of fun.

It's a perfect gift for Dad on Father's Day!
