Power Girl: A New Beginning

Power Girl is my favorite DC heroine by far.  I've been a fan of Kara Zor-L since reading Justice League Europe and I'm also enjoying her new ongoing series.  The writers have made Power Girl more engaging and grounded in her attempts to juggle heroics with a civilian identity and a budding business - and executed far better than you'll find with her annoying brat of a cousin Supergirl.  The first Power Girl trade collects issues #1-6 where Power Girl pits her brain and brawn against the Ultra-Humanite and a trio of party-loving aliens.  Think Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, and Lindsay Lohan - only interstellar!  And if that wasn't enough superhero fun, Terra guest stars and continues to build on her relationship with Power Girl that started in her Terra mini-series.  There are some gorgeous variant covers by Adam Hughes and Guillem March, but the real star artist is Amanda Conner who draws oodles of emotion and humor into each panel.  This is truly one of DC's finest ongoing series.
