The greatest heroes in the DC Comics universe, the Justice League, answer mail from their biggest fans--kids!--courtesy of Michael Northrop, New York Times bestselling author of TombQuest, and artist Gustavo Duarte. 

Does Superman ever make mistakes? What was Wonder Woman's eleventh birthday like? Does Aquaman smell like fish? In this new middle-grade graphic novel, iconic heroes are asked questions both big and small, and when they are not busy saving the world, the Justice League even finds time to respond. Their honest and humorous answers will surprise and delight readers of any age, as it turns out that being a superhero is not too different from being a kid. 

Full of feats, follies, and colorful illustrations, Dear Justice League gives readers the inside scoop into everyday heroics, no matter who wears the cape! 



Dear Justice League is a super fun, cleverly written and illustrated new middle-grade graphic novel that allows young readers to learn even more about their favorite DC super heroes, like Batman, Superman, Wonderwoman, Cyborg, and more! 

In Dear Justice League, some of DC’s most famous super heroes answer fan emails and letters, and the results are a slew of wacky, wild, and wonderful stories. Each fan email/question introduces an age-appropriate relatable topic that, when explored, offers timely and valuable life lessons. Michael Northrop does a superb job of bringing these infamous super heroes to life through laugh-out-loud humor, delightfully fun storylines, and pitch-perfect writing. Gustavo Durate’s bright, engaging illustrations, so full of lively details; awesomely crafted characters; and silly depictions, perfectly capture the stories being told. 

Dear Justice League is a super fun and entertaining treat for DC fans of all ages and graphic novel newbies!
