I love Lunella Lafayette and her BFF, Devil Dinosaur.
From Amazon: “She’s been so busy worrying about the Terrigen Cloud that would turn her Inhuman, Luna Lafayette might instead fall prey to…Cosmic Cooties?! Because when a new boy moves to town from far, far away, he’s oddly interested in her. Meanwhile, the most wanted T-Rex in NYC is running out of places to lie low – a problem that won’t get any easier when our darling duo undergo a body swap! It’s a big change up that will see Luna spending a freaky Friday (or whatever day it happens to be) as Devil Dinosaur, and vice versa! Will Luna evade capture? Will DD scrape a passing grade on his test? And who exactly is Moon Girl’s new 9-year-old archnemesis, Kid Kree? As his plans unfold, there’ll be major revelations about Luna’s abilities!”
The thing Luna was most afraid of happened at the end of volume 1. She ran into a cloud of Terrigen mist and began Terrigenises. In volume 2, Cosmic Cooties, Luna emerges from her shell and can’t identify what about her has changed. She looks the same, she feels the same, and her super power is still her ability to design and build tools to help her fight bad guys. Until…
Body switcheroo hijinks ensue.
It’s tough when you know you don’t fit in with your peers, but you don’t know how to talk about it. Lunella is a prickly character. She is so focused on being different that she doesn’t seem to notice that there are a couple of kids who appreciate her for it. She’s tongue-tied around Ms. Marvel. A strange boy shows up and attempts to become Lunella’s friend and Moon Girl’s nemesis.
Every single issue in Cosmic Cooties was excellent. I’m looking forward to volume 3.
