Best of ’07: Powr Mastrs vol. 1

December 10, 2008

Chris Forgues does most of his work as a storyteller with his clean, almost airy line, and that frees his story to go wherever it will.  Powr Mastrs has an improvisational feel, but I never get a sense he’s making the story up as it goes along.  Rather, I almost feel like it’s making me up as I read it.  If that makes no sense, neither does much of this book, which shuffles and redefines fantasy and the superhero for the next next millennium.  Never a pastiche or parody, it is truly sui generis, full of promise.
