Gallant Girl a genius? Who knew. It turns out all that technology was invented by her and she wants everyone to know who’s running the scene. And guess what. She has no super powers. But that changes later on with the use of one of her devices and she soon declares herself the new super-villain.

I had hoped to see an epic confrontation, but there was nothing more than your average high-school super-powered cat fight. I had also hoped to find a laugh in there somewhere, but no. Nothing’s changed. Disappointing.

I’m officially dropping this series. It’s not good enough for me to spend anymore money on. I’m done.

Gallant Girl just got upstaged and it’s all over the news, but darker things are going on as we learn the real mastermind behind the shady activities of the Fellowship.

I’m not sure if I’m just really tired this morning and just not into it, or if it really was dull. It had it’s moments of humor, but somehow I knew Gallant Girl would end up turning into a villain. I didn’t expect the scope to be this big, given how funny the first issue was. All-of-a-sudden we’ve gone into a more serious mode which caught me off guard and I can’t really get into it.

I’m not overly impressed with is and not so excited. The premise was good and I enjoyed the first issue, but it doesn’t live up to my expectations. I expected more in the humor department.

The only reason I’ll pick up more is if I have the extra money to burn and no better choice.

Gallant Girl is a superhero chosen by a pageant, much like Miss America. Renee was Miss Maine, and despite her skills, her looks didn’t make the cut.

When a giant robot attacks the airport, she rises to the occasion and proves her worth as a hero. All it wins her is the honor of being Gallant Girl’s stunt double. She does all the work while the real Gallant Girl gets all the credit. Luckily she has a friend on the inside, and with his help, the hero’s life might be hers after all.

I am so excited about this comic. Actually, my excitement is merely in getting the chance to finally read this. I had been interested in this since a friend told me about it. It seemed exactly like something I’d enjoy.

You have the brains! You have the talent! You have the power and, most importantly, the chutzpah!

In fact, just between us, you have everything we could want in a gallant girl.

Everything but the looks!

I’m really liking this. The writing is good and the humor right up my alley. It’s really no surprise I would go for something like this. The art even matches well with the book. I’ve noticed that every series that has this style of humour ends up with this style of art. Not that it’s a bad thing, just my sensational powers of observation hard at work, though straining is more like it.

This is a good, strong start to the series that has me aching for me. Will it last? Or will it just end up another disappointment like almost everything else I’m reading?

Sometime’s I think I’m cursed just because I don’t like the big super-heroes of Marvel and DC.
