Rebecca and the Super Heroes

Warning: no super heroes appear in this comic. Well, I guess one does at the end, sort of. This is the story of Rebecca, Ryan’s girlfriend, and her introduction to Ryan’s world of comics. A very brief introduction, as this comic only has five single page stories, but maybe a larger edition is in the works? Anyway, stories in here include Rebecca’s similarities to Kal-El, the practical limitations of properly filling out a Wonder Woman costume, the joys of not having to get into dumb comic book arguments, and Rebecca’s first experience with watching an episode of the old Hulk tv show. Which, really, is not the best “gateway show” to get the ladies interested in geekery. My opinion is that you can’t go wrong with Buffy, and sure, I know that there aren’t any super heroes in that technically, but it lets the uninitiated know that such an idea can be compelling and rewarding for adults. This is a tiny comic, like I said, so there’s not a whole lot more to say about it. It’s an interesting subject, and Ryan could maybe have enough material to make a full size comic or maybe even a graphic novel out of this. It’s worth checking out, and is another welcome addition to this giant box of mini comics. Oh, and Ryan is going through something of a crisis in comic form on his website (new strips on Wednesdays and Sundays!), and going through the back strips has already taken up a good chunk of my morning. Just sayin’…
