The deadliest girl alive returns for THE STREET ANGEL GANG

The Eisner Award-winning creative team of Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac, The PLAIN Janes) and Brian Maruca (Afrodisiac) will release THE STREET ANGEL GANG in a full-color hardcover this July from Image Comics.

Jesse Sanchez is a kung fu master on a skateboard, and a homeless orphan failing seventh grade.

“Find out what happens when the Deadliest Girl Alive embraces her inner gangsta,” said Rugg. 

“You’ll see sleeves in a whole new light!” promised Maruca.
