This week Action Lab Entertainment rolls out Fight Like a Girl #2 by David Pinckney and Soo Lee. The story picks up with Amarosa in debate with a friend about seeking alternative options to the gauntlet of challenges she has previously accepted. The story moves quickly into Amarosa’s next test. She enters the fantasy realm, meets up with “The Announcer” and begins to search for her challenge. It doesn’t take long for her to stumble across her opponent, and action ensues.
If I had to describe this book in one word, it would be “safe”. Neither Pinckney’s story or Lee’s art take very many chances. The dialogue is simple and direct. The art has it’s highs and lows. But the approach this creative team has taken makes this book accessible to readers of all ages. Older readers will breeze through the story and not take much from it, but the younger crowd will have fun with this book. The overall plot driving the series is interesting, and there is definitely potential here. Hopefully Pinckney & Lee can turn it up a notch in future issues.
Final Verdict: Better suited for a younger crowd, Fight Like a Girl #2 is not the best book you will read this week, but also not the worst. If you have kids and want something to read with them over the holiday break, this would be a good book to try.
