The second in the series of Image Comics hardcover editions of original Street Angel stories is already here! The Street Angel Gang is chock-a-block with rock-em-sock-em action – with a twist. The central narrative thrust -- a tough gang holds an open call for new members; has the Orphan Avenger finally found a family? -- has been layered with a Brechtian bracket of apocryphal trading cards that serves to simultaneously amp up the satire and situate the narrative firmly in the boyish realm of sports and games. In addition, Rugg employs a stripped down style here, which does double duty of keeping the action moving and keeping the reader focused on the technique. In other words, The Street Angel Gang is twofer: a rollicking action comic book that is also a self-aware critique of the genre; you can have your cake, and eat it too. Plus bonus extras! How can you go wrong?
