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.
I loved The Adventures of Superhero Girl! It was such a fun book, I read it in just one sitting. The illustrations were cute and it went along perfectly with Superhero Girl. Superhero Girl was a funny character, she is in her early 20's and have some super powers, but is a little bit insecure and it doesn't help that in Canada there isn't a lot of crime....and that everyone loves her perfect superhero brother. This book makes fun of superheroes and super villains, and I just couldn't stop laughing. Superhero Girl faces ninjas with crowns, a marshmallow villains, an skeptical guy who doesn't believe she's a superhero and forgetting to wear sunscreen and end-up with mask-shaped tan lines in.
