ADVENTURES OF SADGIRL THE SUPERHEROINE #1: $?, 6” x 7½”, copied, 16 pgs.

In this first issue of Sadgirl, we meet the “liberator of sad girls everywhere.” Written by a mother and illustrated by her young daughter, our superheroine deals with evil stepfathers and uncles, who go from putting girls down to trying to creep on them. She deals with bum boyfriends and judgmental “friends”—and in the end flushes them all down the toilet and helps girls everywhere. The writer also recently put on a play based on her and her daughter’s comic! Cute, with a straightforward message. –Tricia (The Adventures of Sadgirl, taleasofasierramadre.com)
