One of the problems with Wildstorm's Cliffhanger imprint of the later 1990s was that most of the titles that it produced were notorious for their lateness of publication. As a result, Humberto Ramos' Crimson, Joe Madureira's Battle Chasers, and J. Scott Campbell's Danger Girl never realized their full potential. Danger Girl, over a span of years, only existed as 7 canonical issues, with a few one-shots here and there. Despite its short run, however, Danger Girl remains one of the two top Cliffhanger titles in my estimation (the other being Madureira's Battle Chasers). A fun-loving combination of James Bond, Charlie's Angels, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars, and other pop-culture icons, Danger Girl follows Abbey Chase and a team of female secret agents as they compete with an international terrorist regime for a series of powerful Atlantean artifacts. There are a number of twists and turns along the way, and a rip-roaring climax that will please Indiana Jones fans to no end. Campbell's art is fantastic, and the story moves along at breakneck pace. The book itself includes the series' covers, a number of other illustrations, a sketch gallery, and other behind-the-scenes materials, as well as an amusing introduction from famed B-movie actor Bruce Campbell. Overall, a great series that ended far too soon. Well worthy of adding to any comic fan's collection.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Danger Girl, originally part of Image's 'Cliffhanger' comics line of the late 1990s, was unfortunately erraticly published and produced only 7 issues as well as several one-shot adventures. Masterminded by fan-favorite artist J. Scott Campbell (of Gen 13 fame) and Andy Hartnell, Danger Girl combines a number of spy- and adventure-movie franchises (as well as a healthy dose of inspiration from G.I. Joe and Star Wars) into a rip-roaring tale of mystical artifacts, espionage, skullduggery, and rather cheeky fun. Despite its focus on action, Danger Girl never manages to take itself too seriously. The art, when it first premiered, was a departure from the original style that Campbell usually employed, and evolved over the series so that by issue 7 the characters, in some instances, were portrayed differently. This handsome compilation includes each of the 7 issues, the #0 introductory story, a gallery of cover art, preliminary sketches, original advertisements, and other resources. An enjoyable ride (and read) from start to finish.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was very impressed with this as a whole. I only purchase the occasional comic book or graphic novel for the artwork, since I'm not really into the whole 'diabolical fiend' story stuff. I bought Danger Girl for the killer artwork, and I just love it. The entire thing is in full color and believe it or not...I actually get a kick out of the story too. It's a playful 'Charlie's Angel's' sort of thing, but I think it's great. I've very glad I bought this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is one of those books you just can't put down. Explosive action, sexy women and a good story all make this a great buy. You are guaranteed to love this. There are some provocative images and suggestive themes, so keep it away from the kiddies. there isn't any nudity, though. Buy this book now.Was this review helpful?
