Adafruit’s comic book reading list #adafruitcomics Grrl Power – A webcomic about superheroines @grrlpowercomic

Comics-1

Grrl Power – A webcomic about superheroines – the Adafruit comic reading list, Mike writes –

Sidney Scoville Junior (her dad expected a son) co-owns a comic book shop, has a secret involving the poster tube she constantly carries on her back, and ADD. She’s a geek to the core, with a healthy collection of all those little quirks that make geeks fun to watch.

Her life takes a turn for the interesting while she’s making a deposit at the bank and it gets robbed. She doesn’t save the day exactly, but she meets two extremely powerful women: Maxima – a 6’1″ Army colonel with gold skin, purple hair, and the power to liquefy a tank, and Arianna: Maxima’s lawyer/PR-agent.

Start at the beginning if you want to avoid spoilers. The artwork is a little rough at first, but you can see it evolve as the story gets going.

It’s a combination of action and slapstick where the characters are both genre-savvy and smart.. there’s a page where Max tells Sidney never to shoot anything without looking behind the target to see if there’s a kitten orphanage in line to be hit if she misses, and explains the “great power requires great restraint” with a Gwen Stacy reference.

Note: “Rated PG-13 for violence and gratuitous cheesecake (and beefcake) – Rated R for language. Seriously, Sydney has a filthy mouth”.
