With super strength 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, 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 this self-published graphic novel is the result of a successful Kickstarter.

    All told, "Strong Female Protagonist" is a fascinating superhero book -- one that's more interested in how one person can't make a difference than how one can. But instead of turning that lesson into nihilism, the book treats it as a call to action. If change that affects everyone is going to take effort from everyone, that means each individual's heroism is actually more necessary than it would otherwise be. When the world can't rely on one person to get it done, it needs every person. Read Full Review

    There are certainly some rougher patches, but Strong Female Protagonist is a solidly constructed series filling a niche that's very much in demand. It's wonderful to see a series exploring areas of the superhero genre that are usually resigned to subtext and throw-away sideplots and the characters are rich and familiar. If you're hungry for something fresh and vivid, especially if you love Ms. Marvel or the works of Greg Weisman, Strong Female Protagonist may just be what you've been looking for. Read Full Review
