[[caption-width-right:300:They're dangerous, they're girls...what more do you need?]]

Infamous FanService comic artist J. Scott Campbell's first solo foray into the comic world, ''Danger Girl'' is notorious for many reasons, two of which are the ridiculous amount of cheesecake in the book, and the lengthy timeframe between issues, sometimes exceeding a year. The series is a satirical, yet sometimes dark, take on the espionage genre, and centered on Abigail Chase, a former treasure seeker who gets sucked into the Danger Girl team by happenstance when their paths cross during her encounters with a hostile nemesis. Abbey, as she was mostly known, pretty much played the straight woman to the rest of the quirky team.

The Danger Girls consist of Sydney Savage, reckless thrill-seeker extraordinaire from the LandDownUnder, who has a thing for whips and catsuits; Natalia Kassle, the Russian assassin/resident ice queen, [[spoiler: who eventually was revealed to be TheMole for the Nazi-esque Hammer Empire]]; Silicon Valerie, the teenage techno-geek who has expertise in all things computer-related[[spoiler: (and the most recent addition after Kassle's defect)]]; [[WrenchWench J.C., a Canadian mechanic]] with an affinity for tinkering and creating mostly bizarre yet useful inventions for the team.

Their leader is Deuce, a former agent for Her Majesty's Secret Service who was recruited by the United Nations to lead the first all female spy team. More or less he's a caricature of Sean Connery, right down to the facial expressions and mannerisms.

The series debuted in March, 1998 and is still ongoing. The series spawned a {{PlayStation}} game and a TV PilotMovie, though the former was the only one that actually made it past the concept stage. It has, however recently been optioned for the big screen, to be directed by Todd Lincoln and produced by the same people that worked on the ''Film/{{Hitman}}'' film.

!!''Danger Girl'' contains examples of:

* AbsoluteCleavage: It's amazing that Sydney can zip her suit up all the way, but she's hardly the only one.
* ActionGirl
* AdventurerArchaeologist: Abigail Chase.
* AppliedPhlebotinum: Serum X, the SuperSoldier compound created by [[MadScientist Dr. Von Kripplor]] that fuels Maxim.
* ArtifactOfDoom: Also an UpgradeArtifact.
* AwesomeAussie: Sydney Savage
* BadassGrandpa: Deuce. He's clearly past his prime but manages to fend off a squad of Hammer assassins alone and escape with no real injuries.
** Hammer Leader becomes a Badass Great Grandpa [[spoiler: when he dons the [[UpgradeArtifact artifact armor]]]].
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The Danger Girl team (Natalia, Sydney and Valerie respectively) when Abbey meets them. [[spoiler: Later Abbey, Sydney and Valerie after Abbey's recruitment and Natalia's betrayal.]]
* ChairReveal: In '' Danger Girl and the [[Franchise/EvilDead Army of Darkness]]'' #4, Agent Zero shoots what he thinks is his target through the back of a chair. He then walks round to the front of the chair and instead finds a dummy rigged to a bomb with three seconds left on the timer
* ClothingDamage: Frequently, and often on purpose. Once with alligators.
* CommieNazis: The Hammer empire.
* DeadFootLeadfoot: Happens in ''Trinity'' #2 when Sydney is ambushed while driving through London. She shoots the driver of the SUV, causing him to slump forward on the accelerator; much to the panic and dismay of his partner. An inevitable crash ensues.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Unsurprisingly, the girls use this tactic. A lot.
* DoomTroops: The Hammer Empire soldiers are ominous enough, and Major Maxim is pretty much what they'd be like if [[HerrDoktor Doctor]] [[TheVonTropeFamily Von]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Kripplor's]] SuperSerum worked on anyone else.
* DragonLady: ''The Chase'' has Anastasia Kilbourne, a master of edged weaponry who Sonya describes as "a tattooed ninja assassin". She even has a tattoo of an oriental dragon running all the way up the right side of her body.
* ExplosiveLeash: In ''Trinity'', Prince Amahz fits explosive slave collars to harem slaves that prevent them from getting more than a specified distance away from him. He fits one to Abbey when he captures her to ensure her cooperation.
* {{Expy}}: Most obviously Deuce to the Creator/SeanConnery's Film/JamesBond, and Johhny Barracuda to Creator/BruceCampbell, but much of the first arc also reads like an extended homage to GIJoe, with The Hammer standing in for Cobra, Agent Zero for Snake Eyes, Assassin X for Storm Shadow, [[spoiler: Natalia Kassle]] for the Baroness... Heck, even some of the vehicles that appear look like they were directly inspired by classic Joe or Cobra craft.
** Major Maxim is an imposingly-sized [[TheDragon field commander]] clad head-to-toe in black life support/augmentation equipment serving a decrepit old [[DiabolicalMastermind puppetmaster]] in charge of an [[TheEmpire evil empire]], rather like [[StarWars Darth Vader]].
** Also, BlandNameProduct versions of [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] and the HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys incarnation of Hercules on Valerie's introduction spread.
* EyeAwaken: [[spoiler: Maxim]]
* FanService: Constantly, and of both the female ''and'' male variety despite the title.
* GodGuise: In ''Revolver'', natives believe that Abbey is their sun goddess returned because she has blonde hair.
* HurricaneOfPuns: Too many, way too many.
* MadScientist: Complete with [[HerrDoktor "German" accent]].
* MurderousThighs: Used by Abbey to wrest information from a guard in the first series.
* MyHeroZero: Agent Zero.
* NerdsAreSexy: Even on a team that otherwise consists of FanService incarnate, Slicon Valerie is still quite a looker.
* NotQuiteDead: Coupled with NoOneCouldSurviveThat.
* NowOrNeverKiss: May also have just been because Johnny is a HandsomeLech.
* NippleAndDimed: With bubbles, among other things.
* PineappleSurprise: Happens to a mercenary in ''Danger Girl and the [[Franchise/EvilDead Army of Darkness]]'', when his own possessed hand pulls the pin on a grenade he is wearing on his vest.
** Abbey herself pulls this on an enemy early in the original comic.
* PungeonMaster: Johhny Barracuda.
* PrettyInMink: Abigail wears a mink coat when infiltrating a high class party.
* RunawayTrain: In ''The Chase'', Abbey attempts to escape by leaping on to a passing train. The bad guys employ knockout gas that renders the crew unconscious, leaving Abbey on a runaway train.
* RuthlessModernPirates: ''Mayday'' begins with April Mayday and her gang of cutthroats taking over a freighter, which leads to them running into the remains of Hammer Island and discovering [[spoiler:Natalia's body]].
* ScheduleSlip
* SexySoakedShirt: As much as it's possible to convey this in a comic, when Abbey, in a white t-shirt, goes swimming. Subsequent panels seem to indicate she's not wearing anything underneath, with the heavy implication her shirt is now see through.
* ShoePhone: Deuce employs a few devices like this, such as his pineapple communicator.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: It's Sili''con'' Valerie, as in computers; Not Sili''cone'' Valerie, as in... well, you know.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: The Peach.
* SpyCatsuit: Sydney wears an archetypal example.
** Thought by many to be a ShoutOut to Vanessa's in the original ''AustinPowers'' considering proximity of releases and the comic's penchant for references.
* TheStraightAndArrowPath: Sonya Savage. She manages to make a bow seem like a sensible choice in a setting where most of your foes are toting automatic weapons (or worse).
* SuperSerum: The blue, glowing, apparently [[ILoveNuclearPower radioactive]] liquid Doctor Von Kripplor tests on a hapless prisoner, one Agent Falcon. It fails spectacularly, reducing him to blue sludge. Apparently, it's meant to turn people into Major Maxim-the only successful test subject, a huge, burly man in a gas mask and red goggles.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Assassin X to Agent Zero.
** [[VideoGame/MegaManX X and Zero?]]
* ThoseWackyNazis: the Hammer is initially described as an alliance between Neo-Nazis and former KGB agents, but - by the end of the first story arc - it's mainly Nazis.
* VaporWear: Sonya Savage wears skintight snakeskin trousers with lacing up the side that reveals that she cannot be wearing anything under them.
* WaterfallShower: Abbey and Ash take one, to wash off zombie goo, in ''Danger Girl and the [[Franchise/EvilDead Army of Darkness]]'' #5.
* WhipItGood: Sydney Savage.
* WhoIsDriving: Happens in ''The Chase'' #2, when Anastasia attempts to kill Valerie in the back of the van Sonya is driving (having already shoved Sydney out of the van). Anastasia dives into the back to save Valerie, leading to this exchange:
-->'''Valerie:''' Sonya?! What are you doing?!
-->'''Sonya:''' What does it look like? I'm kicking her ass!
-->'''Valerie:''' But if you're back here--'''WHO'S DRIVING THE VAN?!'''
