Review and Giveaway: DC Super Hero Girls- At Metropolis High

A new era of DC Super Hero Girls begins in DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High! 

Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, and Zatanna are continually late to class because of their crime-fighting, and Principal Chapin is tired of hearing their excuses. These girls need to show more school spirit...or else they'll be suspended! 

Principal Chapin's demand that they each find an after-school club and stick with it for a whole week seems easy, until the girls get kicked out of the clubs they choose. Instead, they must think outside the box and step out of their comfort zones. As if having secret identities and balancing school with super-heroics didn't offer enough challenges! 

Amy Wolfram (Teen TitansTeen Titans Go!) and Yancey Labat (DC Super Hero Girls) show off a new vision of the DC Super Hero Girls! 


***********************

Being a super hero is hard enough, but for Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, Supergirl, Batgirl, and Zatanna they must balance their super hero lives with protecting their super hero identities, all while navigating the world of high school...and they haven’t been doing too great lately. So, their principal tells each girl she must join an after-school club for a whole week, then report on what they’ve learned, or it’s bye-bye Metropolis High. Can the girls save themselves? 

Amy Wolfram and Yancey Labat’s middle-grade DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High is an engaging new graphic novel, full of laughs, relatable characters, fun artwork, and age-appropriate action.  

Set in the same universe as the DC Super Hero Girls animated series (on Cartoon Network), DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High excitedly explores a hip, fresh new take on these beloved super heroines. Wolfram infuses the story with a lot of clever laughs, cool super hero tech, thrilling action sequences, relatable teenage moments, and captivating character development. Young readers will enjoy and appreciate the excellent way the story focuses on the girls as both super heroes and complex teenage girls, and the fun, messy, never-boring-way, their two worlds collide. Labat’s bold, energetic, and expressive artwork perfectly captures all the humor, thrills, and heart within the story. 

With a refreshing take on beloved characters, cool action and fun thrills, charming illustrations, and an empowering message, DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High is sure to delight, amuse, and entertain young readers!
