Strong Female Protagonist Book One (Paperback)
In the early 90’s, a mysterious electrical storm lasting several months precipitated a transformation that changed the world forever. Fifty percent of the children born during or after this storm have “biodynamic anomalies” manifesting once they hit puberty; a new generation of super-children has been born. Strong Female Protagonist follows Alison Green, a former superhero turned super-college student, as she struggles to solve the puzzle: if a supervillain tries to rule the world and a superhero tries to save it, how can a superhuman change it?
Content warnings: graphic depictions of violence. (Vol.2 centers around themes of sexual assault and rape.)— From Aster
With superstrength and invulnerability, Alison Green used to be one of the most powerful superheroes around. Fighting crime with other teenagers under the alter ego Mega Girl was fun — until an encounter with Menace, her mind-reading arch enemy, showed her evidence of a sinister conspiracy, and suddenly battling giant robots didn't seem so important. Now Alison is going to college and trying to find ways to help the world while still getting to class on time. It's impossible to escape the past, however, and everyone has their own idea of what it means to be a hero....
After a phenomenal success on Kickstarter, Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag bring their popular webcomic into print, collecting the first four issues, as well as some all-new, full-color pages!
