Scarlett Hart Monster Hunter
This graphic novel has darker colors, possibly because of its noirish theme. With her reddish hair and the "Leaping Lizards!" when surprised, Scarlett makes me think a bit of Lil Orphan Annie, and what she would be like if she had a butler and gear to hunt down monsters.

This is targeted toward the 10-14-year-old age bracket, which is probably why the plot is fairly straightforward.

The art is a little on the simplistic side, especially when compared to other steampunk/ Victorian era graphic novels, but it's still engaging and easy to follow.

The action sequences are more suggestive than detailed, but this is still a fairly engaging read.
