My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**Super-Woman Buddy Read with the Shallow Readers, criteria being: Any comic featuring a female as the main or title character**

In a nutshell the future (2013) is controlled by a faceless evil mega-corp and our heroine is determined to go back in time (1986) to thwart said mega-corp and alter the future.

I know what you’re thinking haven’t I read similar plots in comics like a gazillion times, and yes, yes you have. But what makes this book special is the cast and the dialog which is simple amazing. I also really liked how the future was depicted and that the whole police force is made up of teens/twenty something’s because once you turn 30 you’re to easily corrupted by the evil mega-corp. Lastly although they hint that the mega-corp is evil they never really do anything bad which I also thought was fun twist.

If you like lighthearted fun comics like Chew I think you’ll really dig this book.
