Loved the art style and the design of some of the female characters such as femme flash and steel were inventive, a good storyline I just hope they decide to continue this book on.

Love it but had to dock 1 star 24 Jan. 2014
By Andrew L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let me start off by saying that I am a HUGE Power Girl fan. I had stepped away from comics for quite a while until my wife started collecting the Kotobukiya Bishoujo figures. Being a comic book fan (had several subs when I was younger) I naturally got into the statues with her. This is how we came across the Ame-Comi series was because we found the super cute anime style figures/statues.

I was very intrigued by the 'starting from scratch... so to speak' nature of this series. The premise is cool, all girls heroines, and we were both looking for something we could start fresh in. Now on to the book.

Possible light spoilers ahead.

The art style varies dramatically throughout. The last section being by far my favorite, which is very anime/manga inspired. Also, the Wonder Woman chapter is very well done. The others, meh... Your mileage may vary. The writing is very fast paced. They want to introduce all the characters and get you up to speed in just a couple pages it seems. This is where I have to take a star off. I really wished they would have spent some more time on the characters. Wonder Woman and Joker get a decent amount, but Power Girl and Super Girl get the fast forward button. Being a PG fan, I loved that they made PG the Superman equivalent however! I hope she becomes a permanent part of Earth Prime in the new 52, but I digress.

A nice read, just a little shallow in the character development pool but looking forward to the next volume and hoping they flesh out the girls a little more!

By Lynne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As a child, Wonder Woman was my first love because she is a warrior who owns her sexuality along with the ability to love all of humanity whether friend or foe, and because her magic lasso indicates a deep appreciation for the truth. That said, I found the Wonder Woman of this comic to come across as a spoiled brat who disrespects most everyone and seems to harbor a hatred for men, while her mother had the personality of which I was so fond.

As an adult, I have come to enjoy anime-style art but found it's use in this comic disturbingly distracting since it overly sexualized the heroines at worst and infantilized them at best. Some especially awful examples include at least one image of Duela Dent where her outer labia would be visible if her crotch was drawn in any more detail, most of the breasts were larger than the women's heads while their muscles were not defined at all, Bat Girl and Robin are removed from the story after their parents ground them for being heroes, and one character (in Volume 2) who is otherwise humanoid is consistently drawn without a nose.

I suppose I should have expected as much since the title refers to the characters as girls rather than women even though only two (Bat Girl and Robin) are still in their teens.

By Clark - Published on Amazon.com

Overall the book was very good. The idea to remove the male superheroes and fill their role with females who are well written was inspired. Placing the women of DC up front rather than being objects of distress or attraction is refreshing and while the costumes are often revealing it is believable and not to the point of exploitation and Amanda Conner's take on the female form is always amazing.

Delivery of the book is a different story altogether. The book was delivered in a "padded" envelope, meaning very lightly padded with bubble-wrap and upon opening the envelope, the top of the book's spine was damaged. Not to the point of making the material unreadable, but displeasing to display with the rest of the collection.

In an alternate universe, female heros face off against female evildoers. Great art and a good read. Reading it right now, but will order vol. 2.
