Read full description of the books:
Jim Rugg's and Brian Maruca's Street Angel has a manic sensibility that makes it absolutely worth reading. It's not the kind of book one would return every season to be reminded of just how good it is, but that's kind of the way it is with comedies. Humour media are almost by their very nature light, disposable entertainment, because the thing about jokes is that they get old. So, ignoring that necessary deficit of the genre, let's talk Street Angel.
Jesse Sanchez is twelve. And homeless. With much prowess in both skating and fighting. She's almost like an angry, female Scott Pilgrim. She ends up fighting cops, ninjas, a squid, demons, evil geologists, and, really, whatever she wants to fight. As you might gather, Street Angel is silly.
It's almost silly to the point of exhaustion.
Rugg's art has an indie sensibility, capitalizing on the clean lines and human gestures common to the crime works of David Lapham. The book veers from scene to scene with little reliance upon typical story contrivances such as physics or biology or narrative flow. And frankly, Street Angel is probably the better for it, trusting instead upon the reader's ability to absorb the book's abstract sense and promotion of humour. Some of my favourite moments include Jesse's usurpation of a police megaphone, the tale of conquistadors (pirates) vs. ninjas, and the retrospective of black hero, Afrodisiac.
In the end, it's a perfectly enjoyable book that will likely have a short shelf-life for most readers.
