CBR Review: Power Girl #16

I recently reviewed Power Girl #16 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The art doesn’t help that scene. Basri’s expressiveness borders on the comical, with every reaction so over-the-top and obvious that the characters seem to have faces made of rubber, constantly changing and shifting to express whatever singular emotion they’re meant to embody in any given panel. There’s no flow, just a series of comedic overreactions. Granted, Winick’s writing leans in that direction, so one can’t blame Basri too much for also playing up the broad melodrama, but that doesn’t negate the hamming it up the character do throughout the scene. Basri is much more at home with the fight scene that begins the issue where broader, obvious movements and reactions are more at home."
