Superhero Girl is just like any other superhero…well, actually no she’s not. She’s utterly unique and shows a whole new side of the crime-fighting genre. Superhero girl does everything a normal superhero does like stopping aliens and fighting monsters, but she also gets her capes and second-hand shops and is in love with cats. She also often feels inadequate and is having a hard time breaking into the superhero career. Will she be able to do it?
I loved everything about this and you should go read it right this very second the end.
No, but seriously. I feel like that’s all this book needs, because it was that brilliant.
I read Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks and really enjoyed it, but after reading this, I’ve completely fallen in love with her work. (I was so excited to see that she joined the Lumberjanes crew and can’t wait to read vol. 3!)
Anyway, this story is honestly magical. I loved the tone, I loved the story, and I loved all the comedic relief scattered amongst all the relatable issues.
This comic was utterly adorable and so relatable. Superhero girl’s character really resonated with me.
Okay, this was a pathetic excuse for a review, but, since I have nothing bad to say about this, I’m just going to say have a good weekend and spend it reading Superhero Girl.
This book is right up there with Nimona (which, to illustrate how much I adore it, I’ll tell you I just finished reading Nimona for the 3rd time within 1 year today–oops!)
Book Depository – $12.63
