The team behind POWERS creates a new spin on all-ages superhero comics with TAKIO, a fun-filled series about two bickering sisters just trying to a) save the world, and b) avoid getting grounded.
Taki and Olivia are both adopted sisters in a multicultural family. Their father has recently died, and their mother is doing the best she can. When the girls happen to be visiting Taki’s best friend’s house, a weird accident occurs (the best friend’s father is a scientist, so naturally, an odd explosion is a distinct possibility here). The two sisters gain telekinetic superpowers. Alas, so does the best friend, and it turns out she’s a little on the evil side. Taki and Olivia go to work to defeat the menace…all while minding their mom’s curfew and avoiding punishment.
As much as POWERS is an adults-only delight, TAKIO is a thrilling all-ages adventure that is truly funny, truly well-drawn, and truly exciting storytelling. This is not a dumbed-down comic; it’s a great action series that comics-reading kids and adults (and those in between) will love.
