The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks, 106 pages, read by Courtney, on 07/14/2013

The Adventures of Superhero Girl is collected from Faith Erin Hicks’ popular webcomic, Superhero Girl. And it’s really, really funny. It is partly a send-up of common superhero tropes, but to do only that would be somewhat trite and over-done. Hicks doesn’t do that. Instead, she takes a girl who is just learning to live on her own and who just happens to have superpowers (but also a weakness for kittens, a awesomely-snarky roommate and angst over being in her older brother’s superhero shadow). Charming, smart and hilarious. Do yourself a favor and check this one out.
