Jesse Sanchez is Back This Halloween in STREET ANGEL: SUPERHERO FOR A DAY by Jim Rugg & Brian Maruca

HOMELESS NINJA HEROINE RETURNS IN STREET ANGEL: SUPERHERO FOR A DAY
An all-new STREET ANGEL story arrives this Halloween

Jesse “Street Angel” Sanchez knows the pressure of being the girl who always saves the day. It’s just who she is. But when she and her friends find a powerful alien artifact, they learn that being a superhero is not all fun and games. Is this an extraterrestrial plot to destroy their middle school friendship or a gift from above that Jesse can pawn for a hot dog?

“Although Street Angel is the toughest superhero ever, her stories don’t look like traditional superhero comics,” said Rugg. “In STREET ANGEL: SUPERHERO FOR A DAY, we finally see Jesse with Angel City’s other champions—and we see how she responds when her role in her circle of friends is threatened. It’s an exciting, new take on the superhero genre, guaranteed to shake up the status quo like Watchmenand Dark Knight did generations ago.”

This October, Eisner Award-winner Jim Rugg (The PLAIN JanesAfrodisiac), Brian Maruca (Afrodisiac), and Image Comics present the biggest, most epic STREET ANGEL yarn yet.

including someone who saves the world and fights injustices, one bad guy at a time.
She also defies female stereotypes right and left, and that is pretty darn cool.”

Great middle school dialogue and the battle scenes will blow your mind!”
