Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 10 Up–Sylvia Mark is different. On the surface, she's your average 13-year-old genius just trying to find her way in high school. It's her ability to leap out of buildings and smash bullies into lockers that really makes her stand out. Pestered by bad dreams and parental misunderstandings, she runs away. On the road, she discovers that her nightmares are real. She's one of 100 girls who are all clones grown to be weapons, and she sets out to find the other 6 who have made it into the general population. Unfortunately, the corporation that originally started the project has its agents, each with special talents, tracking her down. Sylvia doesn't have a lot going for her. Her dialogue is stilted, almost like a guess at how teenagers might talk. She and her friends appear much older than they actually are. The average age at her high school appears to be about 25. This style carries over to the adults, making them seem more like senior citizens. Few teenagers will want to look at the scene where a haggard middle-aged couple wake up in bed together. The concept could be interesting, even if mutant-as-biological-weapon is overdone. However, the execution is sloppy and rushed, and there's not enough mystery or character development to keep readers interested. This is a supplementary purchase at best.–Sadie Mattox, DeKalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA

Format: Paperback
i bought 100 Girls at Half-Price Books (please don't go out of business...) and finally got a chance to read it today. i'm not sure why i bought it (the 20% off of a book that's already at half the cover price didn't hurt...), but it once i started reading it, i couldn't put it down! this book provides one great surprise after another.
the sales pitch:

the 100 Girls TPB i bought collects all seven issues of the series by Adam Gallardo (writer), Todd Demong (Artist), originally published by Arcana. the book makes excellent use of Demong's dynamic, cartoony style with good characterization and well-placed, knot-raising violence! one of the cool things about this book is the team does not treat Sylvia like a typical teenage sex fantasy chick... and as she gets more powerful and experienced, she knocks heads with the best of them. when she faces off against male characters (with or without super powers), she doesn't bat an eye, she blacks them. 100 Girls definitely makes the beg-borrow-steal list for this month fam!
peace...

Format: Paperback
Written in the form of a comic book, 100 GIRLS was a very quick read. Sylvia was adopted and even skipped a couple of grades. But those are not the main reasons Sylvia is different from her fellow classmates: she's super-strong and could beat up someone twice her size!

The story starts out with Sylvia having strange dreams of girls in tubes calling out to her. Later that day, she's suspended for getting into a fight and she overhears her parents speculating about her strange behavior. Feeling like they no longer want her, Sylvia sneaks out and comes upon a strange person...herself.

The book goes back and forth between various perspectives, including Sylvia and her new cohorts as well as a group of people that seem to know much more about Sylvia and her newfound powers then Sylvia does.

100 GIRLS, as I said, was a very quick read. I'm not a big comic reader, so reading a book set up in this way was definitely interesting, allowing the story to be seen a lot more then heard. For awhile, I was pretty confused, but so was Sylvia, so it wasn't something I worried about too much. I just continued to read. As the book goes on, you slowly start to unravel this mystery and become more intrigued with Sylvia. As of now, I'd say it's a satisfactory read and I'm highly interested in what happens next.

Format: Paperback
I don't buy a lot of comics, but something about the cover made me pick this one up. I ended up enjoying it hugely. The art is great, the story line is engaging, and the text has a lot of cool, subtle bits and pieces that make it stand out as not just another run-of-the-mill action piece. I was intrigued by this book, so I looked up the author, Adam Gallardo, and I ordered another of his books, "Gear School" (review elsewhere) which I actually liked even more. (It's a sci-fi, aliens attack book). 100 Girls however is also highly recommended.
