Comics Review: The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks

The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks
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.

The Adventures of Superhero Girl is totally recommended if you want something light and fun to read.

  1. You can tell it is a good book when you read it in a single sitting as well! A good comic can go a long way, and I love that the illustrations were good too because I find that so important!

  2. I like Faith's illustrations. I've been meaning to read this one too. Glad you liked it!
