Superhero Friday -- Wonder Woman and The Jaguar

The early reviews are out and the new Wonder Woman movie looks to be a big hit.  By happy coincidence,
another female superhero launched today and I'm pretty proud of her too. While Wonder Woman has the power of a god and fights enemies that threaten the entire world like Ares and Darkseid, The Jaguar aims her sights at much less powerful prey who target women and those less powerful.

The Jaguar has appeared in two previous stories for me The Mask of The Jaguar and The City of Fire and Rage, but The Birth of a Predator takes her back to her origin when she's a college student at DuPont costume before she first donned her trademark scarf and floppy hat.

If superheroes aren't your thing, I hope you'll still try this book. She beats up a couple of college kids, but she really doesn't do anything a fit college girl couldn't do. It becomes a story of college girls getting vengeance on a guy trying to put one of them through revenge porn Hell.

If masked vigilantes are your thing, then I think you'll like this story a lot. You'll see a confident young woman blossom into a heroic avenger and learn how some of her gadgets like the lipstick epoxy came to be.

Best of all, the story contains six amazing illustrations by amazing artist Annabelle Brito, who brings The Jaguar's adventures to life.  Remember, if man is nature's most deadly prey, than surely woman is its most dangerous hunter.

{UPDATE: Amazon has blocked the sale of this book in the United States due to copyright issues. This was quite a shock to me as I have no idea what the copyright situation is. Especially why they would block this book and leave the other two Jaguar books up. I will get the situation rectified as soon as I hear back from Amazon, but this is really annoying me. I apologize for any inconvenience.]

[UPDATE 2: It's finally up.  Here's the link
