As a kid that grew up with Spiderman, I loved this comic. Moon girl is a smart kid who gets in trouble because she can be a little too smart with her parents and teachers. She loves science and isn't ashamed of it. Early on, she stumbles on a device that opens a portal which releases Devil Dinosaur into our world. It also releases the Killer Folk, who are the villains of he piece.
Moon Girl and D Dino become friends and get into a fair amount of trouble. They even have to go up against the Hulk.
My son loved every second of it. We took it in turns with me to read the dialogue (I usually had to be the baddies or the boring grown ups). We're reading more Moon Girl and his confidence with reading has gone way up. Being able to read things like “Omni-Wave Projector” ha that effect, I suppose. And I loved it to: great characters, compelling story arcs and fantastic artwork. I'm looking forward the point when my son wants to go off and read these by himself, but I'll also be reading them after he's done with them.
Meanwhile, 200,000 years ago, back in the stone-age (or The Dawn of Man, whichever comes first in the Marvel universe), a gang of ape-men are looking for a blood-sacrifice for their Nightstone (which bears an uncanny resemblance to an Omni-Wave Projector, which any serious Marvel fan will recognise, as it makes a “Kreeee noise when activated). They are interrupted in their hunt by a big red dinosaur and a small ape-boy.
So… you can probably guess the rest - Omni-Wave Projector, time-warp, modified ape-men running wild in the streets of New York chased by a big red dinosaur, child genius with secret base underneath her school, a Hulk, the Yancy Street Gang, etc,. etc.
The important bit: it is very entertaining; it also has serious undertones about people who do not fit in at school due to being ‘different’ from their classmates. It also has modified ape-men who fit right in in New York with the appropriate clothes, a big red dinosaur, and a Hulk. Also, did I mention the Yancy Street Gang?
It works. I don’t know how, but it does.
