Image Comics Announces the Return of Street Angel to Face "Ninja 6000"
PORTLAND, OR — The Eisner Award-winning team of Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac, The Plain Janes) and Brian Maruca (Afrodisiac) will release STREET ANGEL VS NINJATECH—a brand-new tale starring your favorite homeless heroine, Jesse Sanchez—this November from Image Comics.
After a hard fight with Ninja Carl, the deadliest girl alive seeks revenge—against the company that manufactured his dangerous weapons. It sure is convenient that it’s take-your-daughter-to-work day!
In her new adventure, Street Angel makes some friends, kinda; helps out a witch, sorta; and fights the Assassin of the Future™: the Ninja 6000 ® by Ninjatech.
“What’s scarier than a 13-year-old girl?” asked Rugg. “A team of 13-year-old ninja girls! Look out, ninja-industrial complex—it’s time for payback!”
STREET ANGEL VS. NINJATECH HC (Diamond code: SEP180117, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0856-5) will be available in comic book stores on Wednesday, November 7th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, October 8th.
