Jesse 'Street Angel' Sanchez is the deadliest girl alive - a teenage
homeless orphan skateboarder, fighting ninjas and trying to pass 7th grade! She
likes food, hanging out with her friends, Bell (a robot girl), Lilith (Satan's
daughter), and Emma (a zombie), saving the world, fighting, and food.
Jesse "Street Angel" Sanchez takes the Ninja Kid to school!
Her fists are the facts and his face is the report card! Don't miss this very
special After School Kung Fu, er, uh...Special?
night's the big dance and Jesse doesn't want to go! Is love in the air?
STREET ANGEL AFTER SCHOOL KUNG FU SPECIAL centers around Jessica
"Street Angel" Sanchez, who is no stranger to battling forces that you think
would be beyond her control. There's still the pesky matter of having a regular
life, having to go to school and contend with friends that want her to go to an
after school dance. They mean well, but there is another little matter of a
showdown with the Ninja Kid to attend to after school that may change things.
It's pretty clear that Van Buren Middle School is not ordinary school, but yet
there is a very familiar feel to this story. I don't want to spoil any of the
details, but you do get to see a couple of different sides to Jessica. After
the fight happens (which isn't a spoiler, because it wouldn't be a Kung Fu
Special without one), things kind of take a turn from there. What we end up
with is something quite unexpected, and yet, should leave you smiling at the

you finally find a comic book hero that is female, skateboards, and kicks ass,
that's when you know young girls out there now have a strong super hero to
follow. STREET ANGEL shows girls that they can be anything they want to be,
including someone who saves the world and fights injustices, one bad guy at a
time. She also defies female stereotypes right and left, and that is pretty darn

it was in the beginning. An indie-comics classic!"

"I thought I didn't like comics about kicking ass,
but it turns out I REALLY like comics where the ass-kicker is a 7 year old girl.
A+++ more ass-kicking please."
