Worlds' Finest: Keep or Ditch?

The preview for 4 is out. I've been thinking this over after looking through the issues I have. I'm not sure how I feel about this series. It has some good points, some things that are kind of offensive and others that are kind of meh. I plan to stay on for at least the zero issue but even so I'm on the fence about this one.

The Good:
  • I'm liking Maguires' work for the first time in ages. It's the strongest art in the book.
  • I like that Helena Wayne was a Robin.
  • The strong friendship between women.
  • Loving the current Huntress costume.
The Bad
  • The disrepectful way Helena Bertinelli was killed off.
  • Power Girls' costume.
  • Kara using her body not her mind to get what she wants. She can be sexy as she wants and get whoever she wants but PG has brains.
  • The leads are kind of jerks. Even after five years on this earth they still steal? Why? I thought they were smart ladies that just needed "seed money." Their a little cliche at times and come off kind of elitist.
  • There's no real supporting cast. The only one that popped up more than once was Karas' assistant and I can't even recall her being named.
The Meh
  • The story kind of bores me.
  • Some of the dialogue is stiff and/or awkward. Mainly the bad guy but the girls have a few of those moments.
  • Unlike some reviewers I don't mind the art Perez does but it has it's weak moments.


  1. I really only like the Kevin Maguire parts.

  2. I'm leaning towards giving it up(after the zero issue) at the moment. I might pick it up later on if it interests me. That would likely happen with the bat family interacted with them.
