Reviewer’s Notes:
The cover art of this story I found well done as it reminds me of a possible Saturday morning cartoon. Matching in similarity the style of the cartoons that were popular in the 90’s and early 2000’s, it is sure to catch the eye of any geek or nerd who likes that style!

The interior art matches the cover art in style and design.  But does have more of the cartoon feel, showing the emotions and actions of the characters as the story progresses.  With the cartoon feel, the abilities of the main character also mimic a few of the superhero cartoons that were popular as well.  

The story is well done as it is a classic high school story that any kid goes through growing up, the only change is that this kid has super abilities.  Now while the kid tries to be a superhero, the abilities themselves manifest like a few mutant characters that I can think of, but won’t name.  I think it is done in a classy way and allows the story to go forward, as she uses her abilities where it seems fitting and does not hold the story back.

Overall it is a great story that highlights the basic high school drama of a kid growing up, and has an added twist being that the main character has abilities.  I can see this story becoming something that kids of that age group can relate to, and with further development as the story progresses, become a very good story in general.  Definitely something worth following if it tickles your fancy!

Growing up in the 80s and 90s I grew up as an eclectic geek, a fact that still holds true today. I grew up watching all the classic cartoons of the 80's and had many an adventures with the toys that went with. Played tabletop RPG's and still enjoy computer gaming as adulting allows. On top of making time to read comics, and spend time with family and friends.
