THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERHERO GIRL
I've not had this book for a long time, but I've already re-read it several times. The latest graphic novel by Faith Erin Hicks (who I've written about before) is funny, sweet, and beautifully drawn and coloured. It deals with the awesome-ness of being a superhero - having special powers and being able to save lives - along with the issues of where to actually buy a cape. And what if you stumble into your nemesis at a job interview? Also did you ever think about whether or not Batman et al put on sunscreen around their masks? Superhero Girl has to deal with some pretty weird tan lines.
It's great. Five enthusiastic thumbs up.
