The Adventures of Superhero Girl

Eisner Award Winner!
Best Publication for Kids (ages 8-12)

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.

Originally serialized in The Coast paper, The Adventures of Superhero Girl has since been published in its entirety online and is available to purchase in a full-colour, hardcover edition from Dark Horse.
