To say we have been fans of the comic Street Angel for quite a while is putting it mildly. From the moment we were introduced to badass, skateboarding, ninja fighting, homeless, pre-teen Jesse Sanchez, AKA "Street Angel", we were hooked!

"Jesse, a.k.a. Street Angel is a rare gem in the male-dominated world of comic book characters. When you finally find a comic book hero that is female, skateboards, and kicks ass, that's when you know young girls out there now have a strong super hero to follow. STREET ANGEL shows girls that they can be anything they want to be, including someone who saves the world and fights injustices, one bad guy at a time. She also defies female stereotypes right and left, and that is pretty darn cool."

-Cindy Whitehead, founder of Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word

The creators of Street Angel,  Jim Rugg (artist & author) & Brian Maruca (author), transport us to a world where a young girl is a world-class street skateboarder,  living on the streets, fighting ninjas and drugs, and she possesses powers that help her escape traps, scale walls, pick locks and every other cool thing we wished we could do at that age.  She has friends like Bell, Bald Eagle and Josey the dog. Her enemies include Dr. Skatenstein, The Goose, Boy Jesse and more.

The ongoing story of Jesse and her fight for justice now comes in book form! Oversized and colorful, these books are a perfect gift for any rad girl (or boy) in your life. The Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word crew of skaters read them with a vengeance!

The latest book in the series is "Street Angel - Super Hero For A Day" - which is one of our favorites. Read the snip below to get an idea of the book's premise.

"Jesse knows the pressures of being the girl who always saves the day and she’s okay with it. It’s just who she is. But when she and her friends stumble across a powerful alien artifact - they soon realize that being a superhero isn’t all fun and games."

You can read the books in any order you choose, but we suggest starting at the beginning and working your way through the rich storylines as Jesse evolves and gathers new friends and enemies along the way.
