Takio, Vol. 2

 

Taki and Olivia, the two sisters who make up TAKIO, return for more battles…and a lot more in-fighting.

Listening to these two sisters bicker is half the fun of TAKIO, the story of two sisters from a multicultural family who were gifted with strange telekinetic powers after an accident. In the world they inhabit, they are the only superheroes in existence --- which is pretty cool for them.

What’s not cool is how to live with these powers while going unnoticed. “I want to go to school. I want to come home. Every once in a while we’ll do the superhero thing,” Taki, the older sister, announces. It’s a worthwhile wish, but unfortunately, things are about to get more complicated.

This lovable sisterly duo is both funny and powerful, and the art by Oeming is pitch-perfect.
