Street Angel: After School Kung Fu Special, by Brian Maruca (story), Jim Rugg (story), Jim Rugg (art, cover)

Image Comics, ISBN 9781534302877, May 2017

Jesse "Street Angel" Sanchez is trouble. She's usually late for school, occasionally pays attention in class, and fights really, really well.

One day, Jesse finds a note in her locker from "the Ninja Kid," challenging her to a fight. And it's just a few days before the big school dance--a Sadie Hawkins dance, the girls invite the boys.

Friends urge her to dodge the fight. Friends urge her to invite a boy to the dance. They have candidates for her!

What will happen? Who will win the fight? Will anyone go to the dance?

I don't think anyone had a serious thought in their heads when creating this book, but it is fun. There are also concept sketches and comments from the creators in the back.

Fun if this is the mood you're in.

I received a free electronic galley of this book from the publisher, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
