The Incas can't quite find enough virgins to sacrifice, but their god decides to cut them some slack so sends a time-warp to whisk away the attacking conquistadors. Thus Street Angel has to cope with a Ninja/Pirate melee and find a way to help a gormless Irish astronaut.

Anything can and does happen in the pages of Street Angel, and number 2 goes overboard in surreal goings on. An Inca deity that talks like a lounge lizard, Australian as the international language of peace, pirates.... It's a crazy, silly, shocking fun fest.... Well, actually it isn't that shocking.

Pitting the two classic bad guys - Ninja and Pirates allows for some amusing gags, and the artwork delights in the silliness of the events displayed. Throughout it all Street Angel keeps her clear and cynical head, putting forward a clear and direct argument to convince the god as to why he might like to clear up the whole mess.

Clear headed readers who demand sensible storytelling would be best to steer clear of this imaginative book.. The more adventurous amongst will find much to amuse in this cruise on a sea of lunacy.

In a Word: Avast! .
