    1. I haven t been great about updating my graphic novel reading, it s hard to think of as a place to review them, but why not, I have a shelf dammit This is my latest read, a thick graphic novel that was crowd funded on Kickstarter, which is cool I ll be honest the title was a bit of a turnoff for me I think the phrase is so overused in media that I had to overcome a bit of unconscious reluctance to get into this Thank goodness I overcame it This is a really fun journey of a girl trying to be norma [...]


    2. Received from NetGalley in exchange for honest review Strong Female Protagonist is a tie in of webcomics about Alison Green, a retired super heroine With other teenage superheroes, she used to fight crime with her superstrength, but eventually she decided to lead a normal life and go to college.To be honest, it s been a month since I read the first sixty pages and besides some accidents with her superstrength I can t recall what was going on It happens to me only rarely that I don t finish somet [...]


    3. One of the best aspects of NetGalley is that I get to try things that are a bit outside of my wheelhouse or that I wasn t previously aware of until I skimmed the latest offerings It led me to discover the sublime Sex Criminals, Volume I last year and now I ve come across another gem with Strong Female Protagonist.This web comic takes ingredients from some of the main stream comic publishing events Marvel s Civil War springs to mind and the sensibility of Buffy and other Whedon verse shows to off [...]


    4. I actually read this in webcomic form, but I m going to have to go out and buy this because I loved it This is my most philosophical, thought provoking read in a long time This examines superheros in so many different ways, presenting a whole array of ways to look at that possibility while tying them into a bigger narrative of power dynamics between people Except that it s also just Allison s life, trying to discover who she is since she decided as a teenager to quit being a superhero while stil [...]


    5. This may be the best book about superheroes I ve ever read Alison Green used to be Mega Girl She was really good at punching robots until she discovered that punching robots couldn t save the world Now she s in college, trying to live a normal life and figure out how to actually save the world But things are complicated when you have superpowers.There is so much heart in this book, so much love for Alison, and Alison has such deep love for people Mulligan and Ostertag explore the question of wh [...]


    6. This This is what The Adventures of Superhero Girl wants to be when it grows up While it does improve markedly, the art early on was occasionally a problem It looks like a series of concept drawings, and sloppy composition had word balloons pointing to the wrong character a couple times Also, the baggage laden title could use some work But it s damned smart, challenging writing Alison is a 19yo retired Superman esque superhero, a sopho in college, and a frustrated idealist She wrestles with life [...]


    7. Five stars, which is what I give to books so good I believe you should read them even if they are not your genre at all It s also all free online, at Strong Female Protagonist.I started reading it expecting a kind of comedy of manners, I guess Superhero dealing with university life How wacky, yeah Twenty pages in, it hooked me It got well, it wasn t ever un smart, but it got pointed Then there was the TV interview scene in issue 2, and issue 3 has a beautiful story arc with Feral I really cannot [...]


    8. Strong Female Protagonist is exactly what I want in a story about tights and capes Not only is this wonderful graphic novel full of well written characters and wonderful art, but it does what many superhero stories are afraid to do It asks the reader to apply the idea of real world consequences to the familiar landscape of a superhero narrative Strong Female Protagonist is not about the Kick Punch Bang Although there is certainly some of that Instead, its primary focus is centered on building a [...]


    9. OMFG That was amazing Succeeds where all the other superhero am I really doing any lasting good Or because I can save the world does that mean I should storylines fail because really that is the whole storyline a former superhero who s admitted she s just a kid who doesn t know what she s doing and goes on to try and figure out what is the best thing to do with her life as a human Feels all around, a family unit she s not an orphan everyone will wish was theirs, and some good old fashioned moral [...]


    10. Strong female protagonist is a bind up of 5 issues of a webseries that got funding through kickstarter to become this little book.I m not the biggest fan of graphic novels as they never have enough story for my liking.Overall it was an ok experience but not one that I ll be tripping over myself to recommend.


    11. A digital reading copy was provided to me via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I wanted to love this book I really, really did It has an interesting premise, the title is great, and I love that the creators followed through on what they promised But I only liked it, I couldn t make myself love it.The world that was created in this series reminded me a little bit of The Incredibles in a good way Like The Incredibles, the world knows about the existence of numerous superheroes and superv [...]


    12. ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book is a collection of the first 4 volumes of Strong Female Protagonist.I really liked the artwork and colouring, but found that the content didn t quite live up tho the expectations.I did enjoy the story of Alison and her adventures into superheroland , but I think they could ve been better.


    13. Well, this was fantastic I kind of figured it would be, from the moment I spotted it at Fitgers Books Reasons I love Strong Female Protagonist 1 The title I mean, really It s pretty much my genre kryptonite, as the good folks over at Book Riot would call it.2 The book s blurb A former superhero trying to be normal Yes, please 3 Graphic novel 4 At the beginning of the first chapter, there s a note that the original online comic had mouseover text, which is included at the bottom of every page YES [...]


    14. This is beyond 5 stars for the concept and compelling direction of, shall we say, critical superhero theory Also for the complexity of our strong female protagonist, Alison Also for the commentary on activism, general do goodery, and the beginnings of nuanced discussions of how to go about healing what is crappy in the world There are a lot of alsos for thisOverall a 4.5 for me, as some of the writing landed flat But, in addition to the bits mentioned above that I am smitten with, I adore the fa [...]


    15. I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.Ehhh DNF.I want to love this because the title is awesome and the premise is super interesting, but the execution is going to keep me from finishing or really getting started at all.The novel needs to be read on Adobe Digital Editions, but it s super poor quality and very hard to read I attempted to muddle through it for a couple of pages, but it s hard on my eyes I m literally squinting while trying to read the text in each panel [...]


    16. This was a fun comic I m not great about keeping up with webcomics, so I probably won t read it in real time, but I ll definitely check out Book Two if they publish it My favorite character was actually Feral, so I d love to see of her, and also to get a better idea of what Patrick is up to I know some people found the captions distracting, but I thought they were cute.Overall I enjoyed this and I d recommend it to fans of independent comics.Received from Netgalley.



    17. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing no rithmatic , movies, TV Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here Graphic and children s reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book s interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don t really do stars To me a book is either worth reading or it isn t I can t rate it three fifths worth [...]


    18. A bit uneven The beginning was confusing bc it was missing the entire backstory It seemed to be continuing from a previous book, although that wasn t the case Some parts were really good, I particularly liked how Allison, despite her super powers, was unsure, like any other typical college student And some of the backstory was interwoven well into the current story However, the story itself was choppy Artwork was fine, not as strong as others I ve read.


    19. Whoooooo BOY Really thoughtful about strength, and ethics, and how we really save the world I am NOT OVER the incredible heaviness of what Feral is doing, though.



    20. the only thing i really liked about this was the author commentary at the bottom of each page other than that, i really wasn t a fan at all


    21. This is a superhero story about a young woman who doesn t want to be a superhero but who finds it equally hard to stand silent in the face of injustice Read the rest of Sarah s review on the library s blog carnegiestout 201




    22. What I found most interesting about this comic was the decision to make the protagonist a former super hero Even though she s only somewhere around college age, she s retired from her days as a super heroine and trying to move on with her life Her secret identity is also public knowledge In fact, in her world it s relatively common to have powers, though I don t think most would draw attention to that fact Her story begins where it would otherwise have ended.


    23. Get past the title, and read it It s great Very compelling, quick read with a thoughtful approach to supers mutants that I really appreciate I may start reading online, but I m terrible about keeping up with webcomics I really enjoy it when I can skip the online maintenance and go straight to the flippable book version Check it online strongfemaleprotagonist if you d prefer to dip your toes in that way.


    24. This review was originally posted on Read Me Away.What I expected Crazy action sequences Funny superhero hijinks Super cool costumes What I got I am swimming in the FEEEEEELS Excuse me, Mulligan Ostertag, I would like my heart back please after you have successfully ripped it out of my chest So I didn t know that this was actually a webcomic, and it s still ongoing This story is absolutely beautiful and engaging, pulling at your heartstrings juuuuust enough to strike a balance between me going A [...]


    25. I don t always cry while reading books Mostly my sniffles are reserved for a good romance, but the graphic novel Strong Female Protagonist got me sniffling Strong Female Protagonist tells the story of Alison Green, AKA Mega Girl, a former superhero turned college student After Alison is confronted by the damaging results of her battling super villains and how little her superhero skills have changed the world for the better, she pulls off her mask and returns to normal life, only to find normal [...]


    26. I am constantly hearing doubt from other teachers about my love for graphic novels This one would convert at least a few folks I know, and here s why Alison is a typical middle class teenager in high school who discovers that she has superpowers, and so do other teens across the globe Everyone quickly chooses whether to be a hero or a villain, and the game is on But the ethical complexities of saving the world get in the way for Alison who gets to decide what s right for the entire world Will an [...]
