    "I really hated this book. I don't know why I read it, given even the description sounds awful. Why do women always have to be doing something stereotypical?A FASHION BOUTIQUE! Yeah, because all women are just into fashion and shoes and all that garbage. Sorry, but I am tired of my gender being defined in that way, so if you're going to write a feminist book that's all about how bad men are, why don't you try dropping the cliches and stereotypes yourself."

    "This is definitely one of the best if you're looking for superheroine books. Very progressive, very pro-woman. Somewhat of a love story without the super hero guy."

    "I think this book is different and it seemed interesting when I found it laying on the shelf in the bookstore. It was cheap so I took a shot, and it was pretty good. The main character wasn't even supposed to be the hero of the story, so I'm not sure if it exactly fits at the best superheroine related books. It does a good job of telling the story, though, so I would read more."

    "This comic is only tangentially related to superheroines. In fact, no female leads feature it all. It's all about Superman and the Incredible Hulk. It was an enjoyable read nonetheless, but I don't know if it's what I would be interested in from a female perspective."

    "In a world of comic book movies, why not try a book on the same topic? Get engrossed in the vivid pictures your mind creates instead of the ones on the big screen. The Green Lantern: The Siniestro Corps War is a great way for any comic buff to get into reading graphic novels."
