Lonely Girl is nobody special. Her long, black hair tumbles down over her face like curtains, making it easy to miss her. Yet there is more to Lonely Girl than meets the eye. She has superpowers, and someday everyone will know how special she is.
Lonely Girl isn’t real; she lives in the mind and comic book of Isabel M., a fifth grader at Gearity Elementary in University Heights, who attended a three-week comic book writing camp this summer hosted by Lake Erie Ink (LEI). The fledgling nonprofit group, which recently moved into newly renovated digs in the former Coventry School in Cleveland Heights, offers free writing workshops and after-school tutoring for youth.
