I loved it and am pleased to see it was just a taste of the over-the-top goodness found in this full-length original graphic novel, "Mean Girls Club: Pink Dawn." Whereas the short comic about the club just showed a general night of the ladies causing mayhem, this book chronicles the attempts of a corrupt and evil mayor (along with complicit judicial and religious figures) to take-down the Mean Girls Club.
A young female mechanic named Roxy who gets entangled in a plot to destroy the club is the protagonist for most of the book, with it occasionally focusing on the club, but generally we get an outsider-view through Roxy of these mean girls who like to smoke, drink, take drugs, eat sugar-filled candy, and raise Hell. The Mean Girls are not good guys per se, but perhaps by being true to themselves as rabble-rousers, they end up being heroes as they take on a city full of crooked politicians and hypocritical religious leaders. It's a fun story made all the more entertaining thanks to Heska's stellar art-style.
"Mean Girls Club: Pink Dawn," is a great book full of excellent artwork and clever storytelling that results in a clever take on how we often may view the past through rose-tinted (or in this case, pink-tinted) glasses, but whether its the past or the present, there are people who won't stand for a corrupt status quo , and even if they have their own problems you sure as Hell want them fighting for you as opposed to against you. I can only hope we get to witness more misadventures by The Mean Girls Club in the future, because I adored this book and rate it...5 out of 5 stars.
You can buy a copy for your enjoyment at Nobrow's website or all finer comic shops.
Please Note: A copy of this book was provided by NoBrow in one of their usual occasional press mailings sent out to the media for the purposes of review, as they recalled I loved the first small comic about the Mean Girls Club.
