In just one issue I’ve fallen in love with a 15 year old girl who does gymnastics and wants to be a super hero, just like her dad. Jackie MacKenzie, aka Aero-Girl is a pretty average girl, except for the fact that her dad, Battle Jack has the Battle Spirit, and is the protector of their home town Foxbay. Training as his sidekick has become her main focus, and while her mom worries about her safety, her dad worries more that she thinks she’s indestructible when no one ever is, even super heroes. That is never more clear to Jackie when her father is killed in a battle. The Battle Spirit, which was supposed to have been passed on from her father to Jackie is lost to her when a gorilla named Jak-Jak is in the wrong place at the right time, but it may not be such a bad thing. Jak-Jak may be just the thing to pull Jackie out of the darkness that she falls into after her father’s death.
The Adventures of Aero-Girl is a totally fun little romp of a comic suitable for all ages. I can’t wait to see what writer DeWayne Feenstra comes up with for the rest of this series, and I know I’m going to fall even more in love with Jackie and Jak-Jak as they start to work together. Artist Axur Eneas and colorist Juan Pablo Riebeling team up to do a wonderfully colorful and lively comic, and DeWayne Feenstra really makes this story accessible to everyone. A cool little project that I think will do big things, The Adventures of Aero-Girl has definitely gone on my ‘to watch’ list.
