Street Angel, the deadliest girl alive

Street Angel, aka Jesse Sanchez, aka Shiraz Thunderbird, is a homeless ninja on a skateboard and the deadliest girl alive. We don’t know where she came from, how she learned to fight, or if she’s even human. She possesses powers that help her escape traps, scale walls, pick locks and every other cool thing we wished we could do at that age. Street Angel is an urban legend, a mystery...the stuff of which comic books are made. Ninja.

The perfect gift for any rad girl (or boy) in your life.

Street Angel adventures are available now in a full-color, oversized graphic novel series from Image Comics!

You can find Street Angel graphic novels at comic book stores, book stores, Amazon, libraries, Comixology...

"Street Angel is a rare gem in the male-dominated world of comic book characters. When you finally find a comic book hero that is female, skateboards, and kicks ass, that's when you know young girls out there now have a strong super hero to follow. STREET ANGEL shows girls that they can be anything they want to be, including someone who saves the world and fights injustices, one bad guy at a time. She also defies female stereotypes right and left, and that is pretty darn cool."
