Exclusive preview: Oni Press' <i>Power Lunch</i>

You might have heard the phrase "power lunch" and thought of a business meeting over food, but with the word "power" in it weren't  you hoping for some more ... fun?

J. Torres and Dean Trippe rescue the phrase from its stuffy business origins and turn it into a action-packed grade-school drama. If Captain America is a super-soldier due to his superpowers, then Power Punch's Joey would be a super-student!

Trippe has described Power Lunch as "elementary school superheroin’ w/snacks", and that's just the half of it. Joey gets different superpowers depending on what he eats, from flight to invisibility and even some earth-shaking powers. To keep himself out of trouble he sticks to a strict dietary regimen, but as young kids are wont to do -- sometimes they break the rules, especially when it can impress their friends.

An advance read of the book gave me a real thrill for this young-readers book, so look for it when it hits shelves in October. The creators have provided an exclusive five-page preview of the book, which you can check out after the break:
