Funny--I loved some of the subtle irony. I had to slow down and read the pictures, I am still not that great at reading graphic novels, but I am getting better.

One of the things I really liked about Zita was the commentary on heroics. Zita keeps protesting she is not a hero, she is just ordinary. When she asks to be launched, Piper says, "I hope she knows what she is doing" and in the next frame Zita says, "I have no idea what I'm doing!" Yes. That is life often.
