I'm a little burnt out from getting up early to do the DnA interview, so forgive me if this review is a bit lazy.
Prince of Power Review
I enjoyed this book. As someone who didn't jump onto Hercules when it started, and has only read the first Hardcover, I didn't really have a lot of the backstory leading up to this. However, the book did a good job of supplying the reader with all the information necessary to understand the concept.
I like Amadeus Cho. He's a great character, relatively fresh and new, and has a lot of potential for interesting stories. He's the kind of character that interacts well with others in the Marvel Universe, not because he gets along well with them, but because he doesn't. The conflict created whenever Cho interacts with just about anyone is still fresh and interesting to me, even if it may have grown boring for some.
This book introduces a lot of plot points: the search for Herc, the conflict of interest with the gods and Cho, and the upcoming invasion of dark, mythological forces, to name a few. Seeing how Cho will deal with these matters is going to be a lot of fun, and this could end up being a sleeper hit just like Hercules was (though this book is a mini, I think, I'm sure the story will be continuing elsewhere).
The art was decent, not much to say about it one way or another. I'm interested in seeing more monsters in the future.
And I liked the little boxes.
