Since I read two Danger Girl (DG) graphic novels back-to-back, I thought I'd write a twosome book review...
...the first was Danger Girl: Destination Danger, which is more of an anthology of graphic short stories, than a single novel. Unlike the uniform artwork in Danger Girl: The Ultimate Collection, several artists contributed to Destination Danger.
The book includes: Danger Girl Kamikaze, Danger Girl: Hawaiian Punch and the silly-but-fun spoof on 60's vintage TV shows, The Mod Bods, just to name a few. In Kamikaze, the girls run afoul of the Asian version of the Hammer Empire. I thought this story could have been more developed. However, the manner in which it ended, leaves me to believe--that maybe--we haven't seen the last of this menace.
Danger Girl: Revolver is a return to a single story-arc adventure with uniform artwork. Most exciting of all, the book introduces Sonya, as a new member to the Danger Girls.
Since Natalie Kassel betrayed the team to the Hammer Empire, the Danger Girls have been somewhat short handed. The new gal-pal is a modern-day Artemis and a bounty hunter to boot. In Revolver, hey attempt to thwart a cabal of art thieves and return an artifact to a poor South American village. It's a fun story, but what I liked most about this adventure (besides the artwork) are the glimpses of pre-Danger Girl backstory involving some of the characters and villains.
Both books are the graphic novel equivalents of action-adventure movies; complete with high-velocity chase scenes, outlandish stunts, hyper-sexual tension and comedy relief. Each Danger Girl is strong and talented in her own unique way. Together, they make an irresistable and formidable team.
So I can't resist giving both books 5-star ratings.
