"What could be a gimmicky setup rises far beyond cliché, bringing new questions about vigilantism, justice, and heroics to the field, standing alongside stories like Watchmen and Soon I Will Be Invincible in the canon of witty, thoughtful commentaries on superheroism that manage to be, at the same time, extremely satisfying as superhero comics, full of the adventure and marvellous feats that makes the genre so evergreen... It's super." — Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

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. He 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.

Strong Female Protagonist has been published online since 2012, where it attracted a large fan base, and earned positive reviews on sites such as io9, ComicsAlliance, The Beat, and ThinkProgress. After a successful Kickstarter, Brennan and Molly now bring their series to print, with a book collecting the first four chapters and bonus material, self-published by the authors and distributed by Top Shelf. -- a 220-page softcover graphic novel with french flaps and black and white interiors (with some full color interior artwork as well), 6"x 9"

IN PRINT! (PUBLISHED DECEMBER 2014)
