Description

Artistry and super-heroics collide ain this new superhero story!

Thirteen-year-old Ashley Rayburn is an upbeat girl with a decidedly downbeat past. With a father in prison, Ashley has bounced from foster home to foster home and represents a real challenge to the social workers who try to help her--not because she's inherently bad, but because trouble always seems to find her.

Things start looking up for Ashley when she finds new, loving parents, a best friend, and an outlet for her creative skills. But her life quickly gets more complicated when she also finds a suitcase full of specially enhanced body paints, changing her from artist to the world's newest superhero. It's the greatest thing to happen in her life so far, until Ashley finds herself pursued by a government agency that wants those paints back! Now she has to make hard choices to protect her new parents and learn what it truly means to be a family.

From writers Jennifer Muro (Star Wars: Forces of Destiny) and Thomas Krajewski (Netflix's Buddy Thunderstruck) and artist Gretel Lusky comes a brand-new superhero for the DC Universe in a story that is alternately fun, dramatic, emotional, and uplifting.
