With superstrength and invulnerability, Alison Green used to be one of the most powerful superheroes around. Fighting crime with other teenagers under the alter ego Mega Girl was fun — until an encounter with Menace, her mind-reading arch enemy, showed her evidence of a sinister conspiracy, and suddenly battling giant robots didn't seem so important. Now Alison is going to college and trying to find ways to help the world while still getting to class on time. It's impossible to escape the past, however, and everyone has their own idea of what it means to be a hero....
After a phenomenal success on Kickstarter, Brennan Lee Mulligan and Molly Ostertag bring their popular webcomic into print, collecting the first four issues, as well as some all-new, full-color pages!

Tale of a student super-hero and her problems This collection deals with Alison a.k.a. MegaGirl, now a twenty-year-old student and her day-to-day life. While trying to have a normal student life, she encounters teachers and other people who will not forgive her the fact that she is powered. Old adversaries spring up to confront her. There is all a fair amount of moralising and political statements about how life should be run with which I have no problem. In the digital edition that I read, it consists of black and white artwork which is fairly simple although there is a short supplementary story in colour at the end – preferable for me. I enjoyed this and would have no problem choosing to read more in the future (which I can on the website).
