The Powers series keeps going from strength to strength. Despite minor continuity blips, Powers Vol.7 will rank as one of the best arcs in the series.

Do pick up and read the earlier books in the series before you read this book though as it would give you a much richer background and understanding of the comic’s cast and a deeper appreciation of Vol.7.

It is hard to review this book without creating too many spoilers. Essentially, Powers Forever reveals the origin of many Powers characters, focusing centrally on Detective Christian Walker. Backgrounds are expanded further on characters which were previously glossed over or glimpsed at. As a result, the Powers Universe becomes even more real as you share the pain and joy of the characters at a very personal level.

However, as mentioned earlier, because of the retrospective nature of this book, hardcore fans may enjoy pointing out certain dialogue from previous books in the series that no longer flow as well due to the twist in plotlines. In my opinion though these niggles are so minor that they should not even affect the rating of this book.

If you have been a fan of the series, this book is a must buy. If you have not read Powers before, pick up the earlier volumes first before reading this book. You will not be disappointed.
