The Bad Girls of Danger Girl

After discovering Danger Girl long after it first came out (14 years later) I can say that I am a Danger Girl fan. I like the presentation of the characters and I like the stories that they are given. For a long time there were only two members of the team, until Sonya, the sister of the one of the other two finally joined. In terms of a team of superspies I have always thought that more could be done to incorporate more female members into the team. Generally speaking though any time a new female character has shown up they have had the same pattern - friend of the team that ends up betraying them. It goes all the way back to the betrayal by Natalia in the very first series, but it has been a theme in a lot of other series as well - Viva Las Danger, Back in Black and Revolver. So with the presentation of a slave of the prince in the new series, I thought that it would be interesting to have an Arabic member join the team, but I thought this only as long as I remembered that it is not the format of Danger Girl. Any female that shows up to help the team, almost always ends up betraying them in the end.

I can only imagine how blown away you would be if this one time it didn't turn out to be the case. I have to say too that, this series has turned me into a fan of Danger Girl as well.

@razzatazz: I've really enjoyed this series for the humor aspect, and that has really pushed it to the top of my pile when it comes my pull list. I plan to see if I can find the other series to see if they are just as good as this one.

@delphic: They are mostly just as good, Back in Black started out weak but then pulled it together in the end. Best to start at the beginning though.

@razzatazz: I've looked at volumes that have came out for them, and I'm actually a little surprised that there isn't a whole lot. Did you read the crossovers (besides G.I. Joe)? There was one with Batman, and another with Army of Darkness.

I love Danger Girl...I've been reading every series since the first came out...I even have the figures still in their boxes

@delphic: I still haven't read the Army of Darkness one, but Batman yes.

@razzatazz: I like it....it's cool to finally have a replacement for Natalia...though I do wish that Campbell would just do the art for these series since they're spaced out enough that I feel he would have plenty of time to get them done and it's not like he's doing anything else...I feel like most of the artists on the other minis have been trying really hard to replicate his style and most of the time they fail...though the guys doing art for Trinity are doing a pretty good job
