    The Mean Girls Club are such badass motherfuckers! Heshka’s portrayal of stereotype-busting pinup babes is beautiful. I adore the 50s art style and how it’s all been done in black, white and pink. This was such an enjoyable read and I can’t wait to see more of these girls!

    This is the second over-the-top feminist revenge-fantasy satire influenced by the movies of the 1950s that I've read in the last few weeks. (See also: XTC69.) But since this one is by a man, the powerful women characters all sport sexy clothes and high heels. Go figure. The story has an underground comix vibe that will appeal to some, I'm sure, but it just leaves me feeling like I'm reading nonsense that doesn't follow any sort of rules. For Trump haters, there is a pretty obvious stand-in who get This is the second over-the-top feminist revenge-fantasy satire influenced by the movies of the 1950s that I've read in the last few weeks.

    A great homage to bad girl b-movies of the '50s and '60s with the dial turned way up. Packed full of crass sexual innuendos, vulgarity, violence and general grotesque and deplorable human behavior - I enjoyed the hell out of this book. Looking forward to more adventures.

    For me, the aesthetic of this graphic novel was a 5/5, but the plot fell short. The story was fairly predictable and I think the concept would have allowed for more complex and likeable characters (there were so few moments where the main girl group actually got along with eachother). Also, I felt like there was a lot of a value placed on crude language and shocking behavior which didn't necessarily progress the plot or add to the characters. Otherwise, the art in this novel was extremely well d For me, the aesthetic of this graphic novel was a 5/5, but the plot fell short.

Otherwise, the art in this novel was extremely well done/ the general concept is unique and make it worth a quick read.

    This is pretty funny. A very vampy, rockabilly style girl gang who takes on the corrupt church and state with their cussing and violence. It's funny and has some feminist charms, but it also irreverent and playing with 50s B-movie style. This is pretty funny.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Beautiful illustrations, but I was pretty disappointed in the dialogue. It went really hard on the "vulva-related words are insults" theme and there was more of a sense of camaraderie among the villains than the protagonists. The ways sex was used also felt unrealistic, *especially* the weird rape joke. I went in thinking it was a satire of fifties girl-gang stories, but it was true to origin in too many ways.

    The Mean Girls Club is a group of badass pinup girls who take no bullshit and never look less than flawless. This is a fun little book but nothing that would stick out in the sea of more worthy stories. The art is fantastic and I loved the black/white/pink motif; but the story left a little to be desired. It was predicable and not overly original. While it isn't revolutionary it is a fun read and the art alone is worth giving it a look.

    If there isn’t “revisionist B-movie history,” there ought to be. Any fan of girl gang stories knows to brace themselves for the inevitable moralizing coda. At best it’s “yadda yadda error of my ways;” at worst it’s “untimely death.” Bless Ryan Heshka for imagining a different bad girl universe and illustrating it in the most delightful way imaginable.

    What a bunch of feminist, offensive, bawdy fun! With fantastic art to boot! I found the first zine of this ‘series’ by accident—honestly thought it had been in the bookstore by accident (or magic?) for a few years now. But no longer! I was so happy to see another story out with the Mean Girls Club, and it was just as outlandishly ridiculous at the first.

    The book was a quick and enjoyable read, with lots of bad ass women battling the corrupt patriarchy. I loved the artwork as Heshka’s style brings to life a group of women who rebel against the expectations of being demure and compliant. Overall, I would recommend “Mean Girls Club: Pink Dawn” but be forewarned, it will make you want a Mean Girls Club of your own.

    A bad girl noir just in time! An Anti-authority fairy tale! art work is amazing. Dialogue is fucking great! And it’s edgier and more “offensive” then you would think. So if youze a baby fuck off! “She kicked Wanda square in the sausage grinder!” What I learned: Pink is the only color you need!

    Everything about it is rad and brutal and bad ass. I didn’t know I needed the short wave new wave crime wave but I totally do

    Crazy, wild ride. More explicit than I was expecting, but I loved the campy humor and the hot pink mixed with more traditional b&w illustrations. It was quite unique.

    Like other reviewers said, I wasn’t expecting it to be as crass or explicit as it was. Pretty surprising ok a lot of ways but ultimately a fun read.

    I'm only like 85% sure I understood all that was going on in this book, but I know I 100% enjoyed every minute. I'm only like 85% sure I understood all that was going on in this book, but I know I 100% enjoyed every minute.

    Fun, pulpy, beautifully designed and illustrated tale of girls gone wrong in all the right ways. Not exactly a deep read, but an entertaining, energizing and highly stylish one.

    I understand the concept and what Ryan was probably trying to do, but it just felt like white feminism to me. Yuck.
