    Most of the reservations I had about volume 1 have been swept away now, as this book really starts finding its feet and doing its own thing. This is really starting to fill the huge ‘Invincible’-shaped hole in my life. Chris Samnee’s art is incredible, as ever; I think there was only one panel I didn’t like in this whole book. The only issue I still have is with the colouring. Don’t get me wrong; Matt Wilson’s eye for colour and his palette are exquisite; but I really don’t like some of the textu Most of the reservations I had about volume 1 have been swept away now, as this book really starts finding its feet and doing its own thing.

Maybe I’ll get used to them as the book goes along.

But the main takeaway is that something big is being planned to take the firepower from Owen by the temple with the Johnson family on the run! This volume was excellent, good focus on family, and the art is just spectacular with fights happening here and there and the choreography of it is pleasant to read through and then we have Owen in the center, Master Wei Lun too and revelations happening from all sides! I am loving this series now!

    Bringing the pulpy martial arts mayhem into a modern setting, this was a lot of fun to read. I've really got into Chris Samnee's art now. His action scenes are dynamic and exciting. I enjoyed the contrast between Owen's "normal" family life and the kung fu craziness that ensues when his past catches up with him. I'll be continuing with the series. *Read as single issues.

    I adored the first volume, this however just felt like a chore and has actually put me off the series. I doubt I'll return. Some elements of the humour remain and the action is great, but storywise.... Multiple, multiple pages of a average BBQ party and general "normality" filler covers the rest of the novel. It's dull and unsurprising. Most of it could have been covered in a few panels. It takes what feels like half the book just to get up to speed with where vol1 ended, with nothing gained tha I adored the first volume, this however just felt like a chore and has actually put me off the series.

    3.75 - This was a joy to read. There was some rushed pages and confusing storytelling but, even so! A lot of fun, and beautifully illustrated. Kirkman's still aces with characterizations and Samnee is, well, a modern living master. 3.75 - This was a joy to read. There was some rushed pages and confusing storytelling but, even so!

    Read as single issues. Mostly a waste of time. You read the back pages and Kirkman and Samnee are having fun. Too bad no one else is. The art is the best part. Samnee jut does wordless panels so effortlessly. But nothing original about the storyline except that the main character is married ~ so if a couple having a date night for five pages interest you... it must be nice to be rich and clog the comic shelves with your indulgences. Goals.

    Not as good as the first volume, this second volume of Fire Power still manages to be entertaining. While it loses some of the original volume’s humorous touches, Kirkman still has plenty of laughs. There is less story this time around, with a large chunk of panels filled with wordless action scenes. Kirkman doesn’t bother with cheesy one-liners or monologues during the fights, and Samnee’s art delivers the goods. For those frustrated with Kirkman’s usual slow pace, you’ll find nothing slow abou Not as good as the first volume, this second volume of Fire Power still manages to be entertaining.

    3.5 stars Samnee’s art is still very attractive, the storytelling is solid enough, and the family introduced is pretty likable so far, but I feel like the series is a bit less interesting after its shift to a contemporary domestic setting. There are some fun plot twists and character moments, though; I loved Owen’s dad offering relationship relationship in the form of a long-winded and confused metaphor that eventually devolves to “talk to your wife.”

    Exciting martial arts comic collection - plenty of action I should point out first that I’ve not read Volume 1 but the events that take place then are made clear in this one. It’s about Owen and his family several years after his martial arts training in the East. Although he leads an uneventful life, his past comes back to endanger his family and himself. There are revelations and plenty of martial arts action. It’s exciting and reasonably enjoyable.

    Read more graphic novel reviews at The Graphic Library. There's quite a time jump here - volume two takes place 15 years after volume 1, Owen now has a family, a home, and he’s having a bbq. Ma Guang, one of Owen's rivals from his training at the Temple of the Flaming Fist, interrupts his peaceful suburban life and tries to get Owen to come back to the temple. But, there were some terrible things that happened that made Owen sever ties with the Order, and he has no interest in going back. Ma war Read more graphic novel reviews at The Graphic Library. There's quite a time jump here - volume two takes place 15 years after volume 1, Owen now has a family, a home, and he’s having a bbq. Ma Guang, one of Owen's rivals from his training at the Temple of the Flaming Fist, interrupts his peaceful suburban life and tries to get Owen to come back to the temple. But, there were some terrible things that happened that made Owen sever ties with the Order, and he has no interest in going back. Ma warns Owen that if he found him, others will surely follow, and that’s exactly what happens. Deadly assassins invade Owen's home while he and his wife Kellie are out on a date, and Owen has to fight tooth and nail to protect his family. The action sequences in this title are done exceptionally well. Several times, there are whole pages of ninja fight scenes, and I particularly liked the added bonus of the sequence at the beginning of the story, where Owen's family is asleep and the fights take place in almost perfect silence. Owen's two kids are a little stereotypical at this point, so hopefully they get a little more character development in the coming volumes. We also don’t know much about Kellie, his wife, so overall, there could be a little more time spent on the characters, like there was in volume one. If even half of the fight scene lengths were spent in character development, this would be a perfect volume. ​Sara’s Rating: 8/10 Suitability Level: Grades Grades 7-12

    I'm not sure what it is about FIRE POWER I like so much, because it isn't what I normally read in comics. The epic adventure feel of it? Maybe. The art? Definitely! Looking forward to volume 3.
