So great to have a teenage girl's voice here in the superhero realm! Can't wait for more!
Father daughter bonding at its best
EllePlum is lovingly exasperated by her father's antics, and they do a good job of going over some historically interesting comics
Great fun with a ridiculous funny book!
Makes you want to punch the Fifties in the face.
