So, Lunella Lafayette, a nine-year-old black scientist living in New York, has some “inhuman” DNA programmed thousands of years ago to be triggered by terrigen gas whenever it appears near her. As an inventor, she has hope for a solution from her Omni-Wave Protector, or Moonstone as the Killer Folk call it. Killer Folk are a tribe of cavemen accidentally dropped down in modern-day New York to search for the Moonstone. Also along for the time travel is Devil Dinosaur, a giant, vicious, red T. Rex who Lunella befriends. After all, friends are hard to find for Lunella because she is so much smarter and more focused than other students in her school, not to mention her teachers. Lunella says, “My brain is all the super-power I need,” so when she becomes Moon Girl to battle the Killer Folk, she is armed only with her ingenuity and an enormous red dinosaur. In the midst of all this, a well-known Marvel superhero makes a clever cameo.

If you’re confused, don’t worry about it. The first installment of a new comic series necessarily throws a lot of backstory into the narrative, but Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur eventually sorts out everything. Keeping up with the pace is part of the fun as this stylish comic gives us a new heroine/role model with imaginative obstacles and enemies. The story requires readers to just go with the flow as characters are introduced and plot elements unfold. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is a good choice for readers awaiting the next Ms. Marvel adventure.
