Nasty Girls is about a group of young women who are fed up with the way that people treat them, and women like them, and decide to do something about it. As the punk rock band Misfit Toys, they struggle to be heard, but as underground vigilantes, they really begin to make their mark.
On stage, the Misfit Toys are just your average, ordinary rock band. Lexx sings like a rock and roll angel, Mercy is the queen of guitar riffs, Yun plays a mean bass, and Rana kicks ass on the drums. Sure, they're not particularly well known yet and no, they don't exactly have what you might call a fan base, but they do have instruments and write their own music! Everyone knows that's the hard part, anyway. So yeah, everything was going just fine until those hecklers. And then the arrest. And the review in the newspaper, but really, how was Mercy supposed to respond? Ignore them? No way! That's how the patriarchy wins! And now they've got a bad reputation. Good thing they don't give a damn. Well, if people are going to call them nasty, these girls might as well prove them right.
"Hard-hitting rock 'n' roll gets a whole new meaning in this high energy tale of pop punk vigilantes from Cult Empire Comics" super cool review from the awesome Pipedream Comics!
