Long time readers of Ich Liebe Comics! know that one of my favorite graphic novels from a few years ago is Zombie Calling by Canadian cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks, a funny, different kind of zombie story (of which I always have in stock at Alternate Reality Comics). Well I'm happy to report that Faith Erin Hicks has another wonderful graphic novel out, called The Adventures of Superhero Girl, published in glorious hardcover full color by Dark Horse!
The Adventures of Superhero Girl is a great all ages alternative graphic novel with the main character, a mostly average girl, who just happens to have some super powers. Superhero Girl yearns for an arch nemesis, but instead has to deal with characters like a guy who calls himself the Marshmallow Menace, who throws marshmallows and trying to get out of the shadow of her brother, who is a popular superhero. If you like Bryan Lee O' Malley's Scott Pilgrim, you'll like The Adventures of Superhero Girl because Faith Erin Hick's art and humor are evocative of that other Canadian comic / graphic novel import without being derivative (and I just noticed they both have three names, so maybe that's another key to their great cartooning - grin!).
