Lynda Carter, Beware
The Adventures of Superhero Girl - Faith Erin Hicks,Rachel Edidin

Superhero Girl is an antidote for all those comics who take their superheroes a little too seriously. Would be a good book for any little sister, grades 4 and up.

This was FUN!
Magno Girl - Joe Canzano

Synopsis:

(Goodreads)

 

When a Manhattan pizza maker is found dead in his own dough, Magno Girl enlists the aid of her biker ninja boyfriend to help solve the crime – and quickly discovers there’s more to the pie than meets the eye, including a sinister plot that spans the globe.

Magno Girl leaps into action. After all, she can fly, she can fight, and she can use her fearsome superpower, the “Gaze of the Guilt,” to bring a hardened criminal to his knees. But the road ahead is hard. The city’s other superheroes despise her, and the cops don’t want her around, and her own mom won’t stop spitting out advice about marrying a “respectable guy” and trading in her crime-fighting career for a baby carriage—but is she attracted to “respectable guys”? And is she interested in emotional commitment? And will finding real love be her biggest challenge of all?

Welcome to the world of Magno Girl, a wild and absurd place filled with humor, action, and romance.

NOTE: This book contains some profanity and adult situations.  

 

My thoughts:

This was awesome. It reminds me of a comic book without the graphics. It is funny, full of corny action scenes, comic book like humor, and sweet innocent love. This is not the type of book you take seriously, it is meant to be fun and fantastic. There is no great knowledge to be gained, but there is a lighthearted, fun story containing some of the most unique characters I have ever come across.

 

Magno Girl and Ron team up again in this story. Ron is just plain silly at times in this one tryin to pull off the "I am so manly routine," it is hilarious to read about some of his thoughts. He likes what he likes and he likes Magno Girl, a lot. In this story Magno opens up more than she did in the first story and her character really unfolds. Both characters are very fun and the way they interact and compliment each is great.

 

The action scenes remind me of scenes from old batman shows. I laughed out loud during a scene where Magno encounters her kryptonite, tobacco smoke. A midget tries to defeat her by smoking a cigar. Her and Ron work together and put the tiny midget in his place before he can cause a lot of damage.

 

This author is amazing at getting your attention and keeping it. The story is action filled and stays at a steady pace though out the entire book. I will definitely be reading anything this author writes.

 

I recommend this to anyone looking for a book to read to have a fun time. If you like superheroes or comics, you will most likely enjoy this book. This is meant for an adult audience.

Magno Girl and the Beast of Brooklyn
Magno Girl and the Beast of Brooklyn - Joe Canzano

Magno Girl, a girl superhero on the tail of a couple of robbers who broke into Fu Chong's Chinese restaurant to steal only a the big bags of rice from the storeroom. At the scene of the crime, she meets

 

This story is told to us by Ron. Ron is working temporarily as a bouncer at The Crush Club nearby. He is training to be a ninja, and rides a Harley. Ron witnesses a crime. A couple of guys broke into Fu Chong's Chinese restaurant and stole only a bag of rice. Magno Girl, a girl super hero, shows up on scene to help out in any way she can. Ron likes her. He likes her A LOT.

 

Magno girl, her real name is Magnolia, she owns a martial arts studio. She quit riding motorcycles when she learned to fly.

 

Magno and Ron set out together to try and solve the crime. Through out the book, Ron is crushing on Magno so hard. I love the way she handles his advances. This story reminds me of a comic book without pictures. I imagine Ron and Magno running around all over the pages and acting out the story as they tell it to me. I love this!

 

I love both Ron, and Magno. With almost every sentence, the author tells us more about them.

Magno Girl and the Beast of Brooklyn - Joe Canzano

There is a character in this who is an ass of a cop. He thinks men are better than woman at fighting crime. His name is Royd. HHHAAAAHHHHAAA, I love the name the auther chose for this character.

 

This happened earlier in the book, but I love tis scene so much:

 

"Who the hell are you?" Royd said.

 

She hesitated, nd then, "I'm Magno Girl."

 

Royd frowned again. "Listen, honey, we don't need another superhero, and especially not a woman. okay? Why don't you get a job modeling lingerie?"

 

She narrowed her eyes a bit. "I had that job,  and I ate a cookie and got fired. Look, I'm only trying to help."

 

She tossed back her hair and put her hands on her hips; I felt my heart start to pound.

 

The guy telling the story is Ron. He just witnessed a robbery. He is meeting Magno girl for the first time. Neither one are very good with the opposite sex. This is hilarious! Love it!

I think that reading this will make Magno Girl (the bigger one) even funnier to read. I didn't think it could get better. More back story now. Really liking girl superhero book written from her love interest's point of view.
