The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks. Introduction by Kurt Busiek (4/5)
(US) - (Canada) - (Kindle)
"What if you can leap tall buildings and defeat alien monsters with your bare hands, but you buy your capes at secondhand stores and have a weakness for kittens? Cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks brings charming humor to the trials and tribulations of a young, female superhero, battling monsters both supernatural and mundane in an all-too-ordinary world.
* A lighthearted twist on the superhero genre!"
A bit of a slow start as the random comic strip format started but soon a running story picked up and it became a lot of fun. Absolutely loved the ninjas!! This is a colourised printing of Hicks' webcomic which aired from 2010-2012. Reminded me a bit of Scott Pilgrim but from a female 20yo pov and much, much better! I've read everything published by Hicks now and am a great fan of hers. She has some webcomics available online which I will probably get around to reading.
