To be fair, I don't much like or read comic books. I chose this one for the Book Riot Read Harder challenge. That said, once I settled down and read it, this story grew on men: a brown-skinned Latina super heroine, the child of two moms who, at the end (spoiler) meets her abuela.

I love the feminist take on the superhero genre, but I really don't find myself compelled to find out what happens next. Not my thing.

I really like the character and wanted to like this volume more than I did. Although an interesting idea, I felt like all of the parts never coalesced into a solid volume.
