“Whether read as a mindless diversion or a satire of same, Street Angel never wavers in its task of telling a good (and in this case, funny) story… — the Comics Journal

“If you dig the amazing martial arts combat and wild pop culture collage of Kill Bill, the hip non-sequitur humor of Adult Swim or the teen superheroes of Teen Titans, Young Avengers or Runaways, Street Angel will send you to comic book heaven.” — Wizard magazine

“The stories aren’t for the fainthearted, but the book delivers a hilarious send-up of everything from religion to superheroes. The writing is sharp, witty, and riddled with teenage angst–even as it lampoons the idea. The art is deceptively simple: the high-contrast, black-and-white work appears stark at first glance, but upon closer examination reveals a depth that is startlingly poignant in some stories and fabulously over-the-top in others. Violence and some rough language suggest a mature readership.” — Booklist

“Brilliant!” — Punk Planet

208 page black and white paperback with color covers.
