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

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”.

It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
