Of all the comics I scored on Free Comic Book Day – and there were many – the one I truly couldn’t wait to read was Action Lab Comics’ Molly Danger from Jamal Igle, featuring G3 favorite Princeless written by Jeremy Whitley. It combines several things that comics could use more of these days. It’s an endlessly fun book that’s exciting and appropriate for kids without being condescending, and it puts strong, smart, spirited girls front and center. There’s a joy in Igle’s narrative and gorgeously detailed art that serves as a very welcome contrast to the darkness that sometimes overwhelms comic books. Whitley’s “Girls Who Fight Boys” story, starring plucky heroines Adrienne and Bedelia from the much-celebrated Princeless, is a perfect companion.
If you missed this delightful FCBD offering, don’t fret. Action Lab Comics graciously shared the issue with G3, and you can read it right here. Enjoy!
