Graphic Novel Spotlight: Alison Dare, Little Miss Adventures

Alison Dare: Little Miss Adventures by J. Torres

Alison Dare is a 12 year-old who has rejected the "normal" life her parents have planned for her in favor of danger and adventure. To be fair, her parents did not send her to a girls' school out of some antiquated notion of what a girl should be but rather for protection from the dangers she may face as a result of their careers (archaeologist/adventurer and superhero). While these adventures follow a more traditional comic book path, they're noteworthy since they feature such a strong young female character without making an issue out of it. They're like the feminine alternative to Tintin.
