Strong Female Protagonist
Strong Female Protagonist | Brennan Lee Mulligan, Molly Ostertag
With superstrength and invulnerability, Alison Green used to be one of the most powerful superheroes around. Fighting crime with other teenagers under the alter ego Mega Girl was fun -- until an encounter with Menace, her mind-reading arch enemy, showed her evidence of a sinister conspiracy, and suddenly battling giant robots didn't seem so important. Now Alison is going to college and trying to find ways to help the world while still getting to class on time. It's impossible to escape the past, however, and everyone has their own idea of what it means to be a hero.... After a phenomenal success on Kickstarter, Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag bring their popular webcomic into print, collecting the first four issues, as well as some all-new, full-color pages!

I voted early last week so I got to spend my evening finishing up this graphic novel. The story is great - a young, disillusioned former superhero deals with adjusting to real life and going to college - but the sketch-style art wasn‘t always up my alley. Definitely going to read book two though! 🦸‍♀️

A bit uneven. The beginning was confusing bc it was missing the entire backstory. It seemed to be continuing from a previous book, although that wasn‘t the case. Some parts were really good, I liked how Allison, despite her super powers, was unsure, like any other typical college student. And some of the backstory was interwoven well into the current story. However, the story itself was choppy. Artwork was fine, not as strong as others I‘ve read.

One of the things I loved most about this #graphicnovel was that there was footnotes on every page.

This one cracks me up. #donteatbooks

abbiereadsbooks That's one of my favorite things about the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl series! Footnotes in comics are the best. 2y

Pretty good. The story was interesting, different from most superhero stories. The art was great. I‘m interested in seeing how the web comic is going.

readordierachel I'm intrigued by that Black Comics in your stack. Is that a compendium? 3y
queerbookreader @ReadOrDieRachel No it's a book with words, not a comic collection. It discusses the subject of race within comics, and it covers everything--like history, stereotypes, representation, writers, characters, etc 3y
readordierachel Very cool. Thanks for the details. 3y

5⭐ Wow, just wow. This graphic novel was amazing and the first to change my views on graphic novels. More of this, please!

JenReadsAlot I might have to give it a shot! 3y
MayginReads I do think you'd like it, or at least the questions it grapples with. I don't ever recommend graphic novels. It is a webcomic, so you could check it out there, but I'd argue needing to read a whole chapter (over a page) before deciding what you think. 3y

Scraping by just a few hours before the day ends! Here are the best things I read in Feb (at least those I took photos of!).

A good number of comics, a book in an Italian crime series, an American classic and an always fun supernatural series. Titles below. All except the Italian book are by women. Titles below 👇

If you can overlook its less than stellar title, Strong Female Protagonist is actually a pretty great read about a young superhero trying to be a regular person again. This book, a Kickstarter project, has the first four issues and the webcomic is updated twice a week at https://strongfemaleprotagonist.com

Served with black glutinous rice pudding (pulut hitam) and coconut milk

MommyWantsToReadHerBook How do you make the rice pudding? 3y
RealLifeReading You can try this recipe. I just put mine in the slow cooker and let it cook for a few hours until the rice was the right texture. You don't need pandan but it can be found in the freezer section of some Asian supermarkets. http://rasamalaysia.com/bee-koh-moybubur-pulut-hitam-black-sticky-rice-dessert/2... 3y
MommyWantsToReadHerBook @RealLifeReading Thank you for sharing! Didn't realise the ingredients would be quite so exotic, but I can try and find them. Your food and books combos are always so lovely. 3y

Exactly what the title says. The main character gives up being a superhero because she wants to make a real difference, not just punch giant robots. Thoughtful and emotional.

I. Loved. This. Book. I can't believe I hadn't come across it before. Such a good comic & absolutely what I needed right now. Great character development, interesting play on tropes, and interesting discussions on morality and duty. Particularly timely themes of protest and how to enact real change.

Part Scott McCloud, part Watchmen, part New York Four, and a little bit Incognito, this equally funny and thought provoking story had me enthralled. The warm and friendly drawing style and quirky little details keeps it relatable and a joy to read. Hope more volumes get funded 🙏🏽 🌟8/10
