Street Angel #1 – Comic Mini-Review

Street Angel #1

Street Angel #1 from Slave Labor Graphics, by Brian Maruca & Jim Rugg.

Hmmm. What the hell is this book? It’s like Bob Burden suddenly decided to write a bizarre mixture of kung fu and skatepunk. It’s got artwork that looks like it was done by the bastard child of Paul Pope and Mike Allred, which as you can imagine, is badass. It’s like The Six Million Dollar Homeless Spy Kid, only with basketball playing ninjas. It’s also one of the most exciting new books of 2004. Here we have Dr. Pangea, who’s stolen the Mayor’s daughter AND wants to realign all the world’s continents. Who can you call? Jesse Sanchez, a.k.a. Street Angel, a badass eighth grader who could take down both Snake Eyes and Elektra together in a fair fight. Holy shit, where’s issue number two?
