We don't see too many female superhero comic book titles, and when we do often times the female is hyper-sexualized with pouty lips and big breasts. This is not always the case, but it occurs often. Finding a super female protagonist suitable for children is not too easy.

Johnny DC (DC's children's line) released Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade #1 yesterday and it is exactly what this father has been looking for. Supergirl is a 13-year-old girl who acts like a girl and not like a teenager masquerading as a 22-year-old college student with club clothes.

My daughter and I read it last night and it was fantastic reading. I highly recommend it for anyone with a young girl in the home. She's just what the daddy ordered. Good for DC and good for us.
