Snow Angel (One Shot) Review

Having a superpower isn’t easy. Especially when your parents and big brother don’t understand!

Official Description from Dark Horse:

David Chelsea creates a superhero like no other: an ordinary little girl who becomes a crime-fighting cherub whenever she makes an angel in the snow! Snow Angel faces jaywalkers, bicycle thieves, menacing dogs, and other dangers! This special, all-ages one-shot also includes “The Kids’ Movie”—an all-new, four-page masterpiece!

Snow Angel is tale for kids of all ages. It’s a zany blend of heroism and commercialism. Join one little girl as she rights the wrongs in her neighborhood. The lesson here is that even superheroes have parents that lay down rules. But what will happen when it’s announced that the family is being moved to Tucson where it never snows?

That’s not all that’s in this one shot issue. A bonus story, “The Kids Movie”, is included as well. Join a mother and daughter in a world of limericks as they decide to take a visit to the movies. Kids will laugh out loud as even the movie they are watching rhymes phrase for phrase. I recommend you have a few different voices ready for both stories if you read aloud to children.

David Chelsea knows the mind of a child well. I read this with my little one and she giggled at the shenanigans of Snow Angel. The crime is on a small scale and very age appropriate for children. She laughed even harder with The Kids Movie. There was never a dull moment. We were met page after page with bold colors and sharp lines. Chelsea’s style is perfect for this issue and is sure to be a favorite.

All in all, Snow Angel is a great comic. This issue is made to be read out loud. The little one and I both recommend it for families everywhere.
