PRAISE FOR STREET ANGEL:
"Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca's STREET ANGEL stars my favorite comic-book hero of the 21st century, and features some of the coolest artwork I've ever seen." --Brian K. Vaughan
"Jesse Sanchez is my new favorite comic book character. Great middle school dialogue and the battle scenes will blow your mind!"
-Jeff Smith (Bone, RASL, Tuki)
"Jesse, a.k.a. Street Angel is a rare gem in the male-dominated world of comic book characters. When you finally find a comic book hero that is female, skateboards, and kicks ass, that's when you know young girls out there now have a strong super hero to follow. STREET ANGEL shows girls that they can be anything they want to be, including someone who saves the world and fights injustices, one bad guy at a time. She also defies female stereotypes right and left, and that is pretty darn cool."
-Cindy Whitehead, founder of Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word
"STREET ANGELl remains as charming, inventive, and pitch-perfect as it was in the beginning. An indie-comics classic!"
-Hope Larson (Compass South, Batgirl)
"I thought I didn't like comics about kicking ass, but it turns out I REALLY like comics where the ass-kicker is a 7 year old girl. A+++ more ass-kicking please."
-Eleanor Davis (Libby's Dad, How to Be Happy)
"With great style and flair, Rugg delivers another stellar story of the ever-sassy Jesse Sanchez a.k.a. Street Angel. Jam-packed with tween angst, humor, action, and fun, this book is a must-read for the rebel set."
-Cecil Castellucci (Shade, the Changing Girl, The PLAIN Janes)
"STREET ANGEL pulsates with danger!"

The artworks are really spectacular and impressive, and that's what I really like in this graphic novel. On the other hand, I'm disappointed that the story is quite short and that the ending is not what I've expected it to be.
Thanks to Image Comics for the ARC.

This was pretty pointless. Street Angel wakes up hungry and meets up with her friends while she looks through garbage for food. They find a power ring which their friend puts on and becomes super-powered. Street Angel never does get to eat. The end Notice there's no period for that last sentence....

So great. The characters are irreverent and fun, the plot, though sparse, promises much more, and the art is simultaneously easy to parse and unexpected. New fave.

Rugg and Maruca do it again! Of course, I’m starting to question whether Maruca actually exists due to a couple of well hidden Easter eggs.
