Street Angel, the urban drama/teen comedy/tragedy/action-adventure/sci-fi/political satire/slice-of-life comic with its tongue firmly planted in its cheek, is bursting forth from its underground roots into the realm of "legitimate" comics as a full-sized, ongoing quarterly series by Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca from SLG Publishing.

 Comixfan Forums - STREET ANGEL #5 REVIEW
One might argue that Street Angel, in its lack of thematic consistency, is not unlike life itself: Sometimes it's wacky, sometimes it's serious, sometimes it's sad, and sometimes you've just got to get down, get funky and go crazy on your skateboard with a pair of uzis.
Street Angel still kicks ass, and if you're not reading it, then you may have to accept the fact that you're just not with it.
His two-page spread of Street Angel wreaking havoc on the gang of thugs needs to be put on a poster, or a t-shirt, or perhaps placemats at family restaurants.

 The Penguin: Lyric Interpretations: Street Angel
And not just angels either--witches and gypsies and girls that go through mirrors and girls that must stay "in the shadow of these castles walls." From "Rhiannon" in 1975, to "Alice" in 1989, and past that, Stevie has been exploring a world beyond our physical, everyday world.
Her street angel could be Mick--but evidence points towards it being Lindsey, as the songs refers to a time long ago.
It has a haunting and mystical quality that seems to embody that street angel she sings about, and is added to by the harmony of David Crosby.

 Skating Librarian: Street Angel comic book (1-5)
Street Angel is a series of comic books where skateboarding plays an integral roll in the portrayal of the main character.
Fortunately, for fans of comics and skateboarding, Street Angel is a smart, funny, and sarcastic work that doesn’t beat the reader over the head with the mass media juggernaut of popular skateboarding.
Street Angel is created by Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca, and published by Slave Labor Graphics, of whom I know nothing about, but they seem cool.

Street Angel follows the exploits of Jesse Sanchez, a homeless girl with mean skateboarding skills and an even meaner mastery of martial arts who spends her days protecting her neighborhood from geologists and ninjas.
If a picture is a worth a hundred words there’s a great panel in Street Angel # 2 that speaks volumes — a horde of ninjas barreling out of their headquarters in a fire truck with one ninja on the top enthusiastically pumping his fist in the air as they rush to join the fray.
Living on the streets has made Jesse a tough cookie, but at the end of the day she just wants to have fun and make sure her neighborhood is left alone.

At Angel Street Thrift Shop, McKeon, a soft-spoken man who did his "display" training at Bonwit Teller, has turned the merchandising of used clothes, furniture, and odd domestic artifacts into a small art form.
Angel Street doesn't "negotiate prices with anyone.” He also says the best time to come is Saturday morning, as that's when they put new pieces on the floor.
Founded in 1997 to raise funds for "individuals and families affected by substance abuse, HIV, AIDS and Mental Illness," Angel Street has benefited, as has Housing Works, from the generosity and taste of the downtown community, and particularly the gay community.

Premiering in March from Slave Labor Graphics, "Street Angel" is the brainchild of both artist/co-writer Jim Rugg and co-writer/co-creator Brian Maruca, who spoke exclusively to CBR News about what to expect from this unusual series.
The first issue of "Street Angel" rewards readers with a vivid and deeply textured environment where ninjas abound, super heroes are somewhat odd and a girl on her skateboard is a veritable Supergirl.
Without sacrificing plot or characterization, "Street Angel" is squarely focused on being fun, for both creators and readers, a decision that is reinforced by the formers' perception of modern comic books.

 Local team's 'Street Angel' arrives with attitude   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
With the publication of "Street Angel" by the Pittsburgh-based artist and writing team of Brian Maruca and Jim Rugg, the region can finally boast an independent comic series that is as evocative and sexy as the Hernandez Brothers' "Love and Rockets" series of the 1980s and '90s.
"Street Angel" is a gorgeously illustrated fl-and-white comic that celebrates outlandish martial arts derring-do even as it pays puckish tribute to the urban skateboarding aesthetic.
The first issue introduces scrappy street urchin Jesse Sanchez, a diminutive skateboarding beauty who has regular run-ins with the cops, the mayor of a town called "Wilkesborough" and a seemingly endless phalanx of basketball playing ninjas from her neighborhood.

 Street Angel #1
Street Angel is a street-level, teenage skateboarding heroine.
Instead, Street Angel is a mix of deadpan but affectionate superhero pastiche, mild absurdity (Jesse insisting on talking through a megaphone for a whole scene, for no reason whatsoever, or Dr Pangea berating his ninja henchmen for failure to wear their name badges) and just plain Cool Stuff (ninjas and skateboarding).
It's completely ridiculous, but creators Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca get the balance right where Street Angel is genuinely cool in her own right and not just a vehicle for jokes at the expense of other people.

Street Angel Volume One: The Princess of Poverty, which is drawn by Jim Rugg and written by Rugg and Brian Maruca, follows skateboarding orphan Jesse Sanchez, also known as the crime fighter Street Angel.
In one particular storyline, Jesse is called on by the mayor of the fictional Angel City to stop the mad scientist known as Dr. Pangea, whose master plan is to unite all of earth’s continents into the gigantic land mass that it once was.
This mad scientist is so dedicated to his bizarre plan that he kidnaps the mayor’s bratty daughter— who is pampered to the point where Dr. Pangea has her seated in a reclining chair and drinking out of a champagne glass as one of her hands is chained to a wall.

Street Angel is not just a gonzo book that tends toward the surreal humor and bizarre pop culture references like Scurvy Dogs or Flaming Carrot, but it combines that sense of humor with beautiful artwork and some really cool action sequences.
In the world of Street Angel, ninjas are less a deadly menace and more like a mixture of gangsta thug and cockroach, seemingly everywhere and really more annoying than actually dangerous.
Street Angel is a strange and hilariously funny book, unpredictable and imaginative and beautiful to look at.

Each issue of Street Angel reads like Rugg and Maruca threw several gags together and wrote a story around it, whether it's the aforementioned elements from issue two, satanists and a guest spot by Jesus in issue three or the combination of pulp-esque mad genius Dr. Pangea and more ninjas in issue one.
Street Angel has the attitude and style of David Lapham's Amy Racecar, and resembles that teenage wish fulfilment character visually as well, and the designs for the incan god, the satanist villain of the third issue and the "valiant bald eagle" are likewise terrific visuals.
In addition, Rugg does fantastic action sequences, from the ninja fight in issue one to the ninja/conquistador melee in issue two to the smackdown between Street Angel and a satanist demon in the third.

Street Angel falls right in line with those type of comics, being the adventures of a 13-year-old girl who fears no ninja or anti-ninja policeman and who fights crime using her skateboard, her wits and martial arts skills so deadly they can rarely even be captured on the page.
Rugg and Maruca have crafted a story with the street smarts and attitude of Jim Mahfood and the off-the-wall genre riffing of Ben Edlund, Ryan Yount and Andrew Boyd.
The world of Street Angel is populated by weirdness, whether it's a specialized anti-ninja SWAT team, ninjas hanging around playing basketball or 13-year-old girls who are the most feared of crimefighters everywhere.

 Brazil - BRAZZIL - Yvonne Bezerra de Mello, Street Kids' Angel - Street Children - April 1999
One of the people assisting her is a teenage girl, Elenice Nogueira, a budding artist whose talent has been shaped by the two years she spent on Rio's streets.
The bare brick walls of the apartment are brightened by her giant pictures of teddy bears, bees, butterflies and other friendly animals, as she gives the younger children their first painting lessons and they daub their pieces of paper boldly and brightly.
She also manages a gentle fl humor, showing children tussling with dogs for bones and scraps of food, or a child sleeping on the street at the feet of Christ's outstretched arms, wearing a Christmas hat and with a stocking hung hopefully for more than a stony glance.

and the Incans vs. Cortez vs. Street Girl premise of this issue, it makes sense (well, not really, but let’s say it does for the sake of my point) to have the Spaniards be pirates to exploit the ancient pirate vs. ninja vendetta.
The tone is different, darker and more ominous, but the core of the second issue’s sense of humor remains: Street Angel is dumped in the middle of a ridiculous supernatural battle and finds herself deeply unimpressed with all involved.
Actually, what’s different this issue isn’t that the tone is darker, but that it has a tone at all—issue #2 had too much disconnected randomness from one moment to the next ever to develop one clearly.
