Book Jacket Summary
Lunella Lafayette is a preteen super genius who wants to change the world- but learned the hard way that it takes more than just big brains. Fearful of the monstrous Inhuman genes inside her, life is turned upside down when a savage, red-scaled tyrant is teleported from prehistoric past to a far-flung future we call today. The pair is many things, and together the most amazing Marvel Team-Up. Marvel presents...Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur!
I am rediscovering my love of comics through new series like this one! They have geeky girls who end up having superpowers and really cool adventures. Lunella is obsessed with the moon but all her classmates see is a huge dork who knows more about science than the teacher. The teacher even calls her "little miss know it all" in front of everyone. Way to degrade a student. I'm just glad this does not dampen her love of learning. I do have to say I was a little confused while reading this first issue but I am sure things will be cleared up as the story continues. Du to this, I am probably going to hold off reading the rest of this series until the actual graphic novel comes out instead of buying the individual comics. It breaks up the story too much and then I get distracted by other new shiny things.
This series looks amazing and I can’t wait to see what happens next to Lunella aka Moon Girl!
