As a reader of graphic novels and superhero yarns, I was incredibly excited to get my hands on this new transformation of White Tiger. Angela Del Toro is a fierce, independent woman with sharp wits and a shero's mentality. Sure, she may have started out her life of masked heroism by being kicked off a roof in the Daredevil series, but she fights back with a vengeance. It is rare to find such a strong and capable woman (particularly in Marvel comics) who isn't depowered, beaten, or viewed as a sex object and little else. THIS tiger has claws, and she tears into the superhero scene like nothing else. The story itself is gripping and laced with fabulous dry humor, as well as foreshadowing of the Civil War. Pierce and Liebe have created a phenomenon here. I highly recommend this stunning and social-construct-breaking graphic novel!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Love this title. Tamora Pierce and Tim Liebe tell a kickbutt story without pulling punches. Another great thing about this book is it is not a typical superhero story. And the art is AWESOME!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
