I know it's a thin line posting here on Power Pack but Alex was a member of the team. (Shush, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)

Has anyone else read the all ages digests? There's like a bajillion of them by now and I think a Thor one is scheduled next (Thor and the Warriors Four.) Some are good, some not so much but I just read Power Pack Day One and I can honestly say, it was awesome and excellent good fun. The art was adorable and the story was hilarious. I totally recommend it.

I'm pretty sure I've read all of them, and they are INCREDIBLY cute. They're the kind of book I'd recommend to someone looking for something to give a younger relative, but would also suggest to... well, anyone who wants to read comics that are happy and fun without being condescending.

I know I've read...most of them. I like this version, and the original 80s comic. The 80s comic was the first comic I regularly collected, so it holds a special place.

I believe it. :( The original series is awesome up til about issue 53, then there was a creative team change and...

Well, let's put it this way. After issues 54-63, when the series ended, Marvel came out with a 'Power Pack Holiday Special' done by Simonson and Brigman, which was done specificalle to retcon those issues. Bless their hearts.

Man, I feel old, discussing this.
