Danger Girl Deluxe by J. Scott Campbell (on Hoopla)

Danger Girl Deluxe
by J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell (Hoopla Digital Resource)

The three Danger Girls gain a new member at the beginning of the story who does her best to prove to them, and herself, that she can get the job done. Their James Bond style work and adventures send them all around the globe to track down ancient artifacts and keep them out of the hands of those who want to use them to dominate the world. There is quite a bit of humor in the action, but also friendship and team work. Danger Girl Deluxe is the beginning of the Danger Girl series, so it’s a good place to start if you are new to the series. My introduction to this comic series was a paper copy I saw at a antique shop and I was not convinced by the cover it was something for me. I was nudged into trying it anyway by a family member, and I ended up really enjoying it, so don’t let the cover and art discourage you. I will say that there is violence and partial nudity, so it’s for teens and adults not kids. This graphic novel is available on Hoopla; you can read it in a web browser or download titles into the Hoopla App. The link to Hoopla is on our website and linked in the catalog if you do a search for the title.

(If you enjoy this, there are others in the Danger Girls series on Hoopla, by various authors. You may also enjoy Frank Cho’s Jungle Girl Season Three on Hoopla, by Doug Murray, A Quantum of Solace: The Complete James Bond Stories, a short story collection by Ian Fleming, or the Witchblade series on Hoopla, by various authors.)
