Hey Joe and Matt, Lately I've gotten alot of heat from liking the series Danger Girl. Well I'm here to defend it! Are you ready for me?
First off the Title is Danger Girl, The Creator J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell. The Team: First you have Abbey Chase Sydney Savage, Johnny Barracuda. Natalia Kassel Then you have the Back up Team, The financiers. Duece who is your forever Iconic Sean Connery Look alike, you don't even need sean connery to be in the series and you've got him. Next you have the Tech Savy Silicon Vallerie who is a tech genius and even gets her own one shot comic. Further along in the series we have gotten Sydney's sister and even have brought back Natalia from the dead.
When did it come out? 1997 was when it came out. The creator as I've mentioned before is J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell. J. Scott Campbell worked on Gen 13 and Deathmate Black before this. He also worked on a short lived series called Wildsiders along with Andy Hartnell. He continues to work on comic book covers, focusing on his artwork rather than his writing.
Andy Hartnell started with Danger girl then went to Army of Darkness, the short lived series Rokkin for DC then worked on things for Dynamite. He has come back to work with J. Scott Campbell on Danger girl projects.
Why is this worth defending? Because its fun, its adventurous and its not so gritty and dark. I think that we need series like Danger girl to make us laugh at arch types and tropes and have fun with the spy genre. Its become a much bigger series with several mini series to come off the initial book. Now with Danger Girl May day its become a flashback story that could lead to bigger and better things. We have so many fun characters to enjoy and see how they are fleshed out. Abbey certainly has some backstory we could look into, Sydney Savage we don't know much about her past, Natalia we are learning is a much deeper character than previously thought. We are going to learn some secrets of Dueces past in Mayday. So yes, I will continue to enjoy this series for as long as it runs and I think it needs a defense. Let me know if I have sold you guys on it. Talk to you later. Your loyal Listenerd Randy Andrews.
I'm going to have to rewatch it to do a proper job of defending it, but as far as I know, I'm the only guy on the planet who enjoyed the Alone in the Dark film. Like, full on, non-ironic, really enjoyed that shiz.
