Being a preteen super hero is hard. Doing it when your parents finally know about it is even harder. Good thing Lunella Lafayette (A.K.A. Moon Girl, Inhuman super-genius) has a plan to keep heroing. To provide herself with the perfect alibi, she organizes a roller derby team of other Inhuman kids. It's just supposed to be an excuse to get out of the apartment with all her super-hero gear in tow, but it turns out to be kind of?fun? But nothing is simple when you're a super hero, and one of the kids on the team might just be more sinister than they appear.

    I love a series that swings big right out of the gate, and this one does that. It drops a heap of status quo adjustments for Lunella, most of which are great. It fleshes out her parents' lives for the first time ever. And the art is wonderfully cartoony; Alba Glez has a real flair for tween characters.

    Unfortunately, the weakest part of this might be the antagonist and the core conflict. Not only are they not particularly compelling, their complex set-up in the final scenes boots the target reader age of this book up by about 5 years. It's a good start and a good finish -- but each one is good for a very different audience.

    (Also I have to admire a new Marvel series admitting that the Inhumans exist.)
