Action figures come to life in Tom Scioli’s ‘Truth to Power’

The ‘Super Powers’ and ‘G.I. Joe vs. Transformers’ creator shares a toyline of his own creation.

After a bit of a break, American Barbarian and Transformers vs. G.I. Joe creator Tom Scioli has returned to his Tumblr ove rthe last week or so with some fun sequential art, including a page of Thor comics, something called War Dreamers and this one, Truth to Power.

The comic, listed as “Part 1,” tells the story of sentient action figures — or perhaps superheroes turned into action figures; I’m really not sure at this point.

Having recently wrapped up work on the Young Animal “Super Powers” back-up feature, which was based on comics by Jack Kirby based on the Super Powers toyline, it seems appropriate for Scioli to tackle his own “toyline” comic, where he has fun playing with the trials and tribulations of unbendable wrists and the rare female action figure.

Go check it out; hopefully we will get more.
