Supergirl: Being Super! Blog Tour (giveaway)

by Mariko Tamaki 
June 5, 2018 
DC Comics 

Caldecott Honor and Eisner Award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Joëlle Jones (Lady Killer) combine forces for SUPERGIRL: BEING SUPER! This is the Girl of Steel as you've never seen her before in a coming-of-age tale of "Being Super," full of heart with added teenage irony. 

Welcome to Midvale, home to Liberty High School and an unusual girl named Kara Danvers. While it may seem like your ordinary town, girls like Kara make it extraordinary. She's super-strong, she can fly and she crash-landed on Earth in a rocket ship. But for Kara Danvers, winning the next track meet, celebrating her 16th birthday and surviving her latest mega-zit are her top concerns.  

Now Kara's incredible powers are kicking into high gear and people she trusted are revealing creepy ulterior motives. The time has come for her to choose between the world where she was born and the only world she's ever known.  

Mariko Tamaki is an award-winning Canadian writer living in Oakland, California. She is the author of Saving Montgomery Sole and the co-creator, with Jillian Tamaki, of This One Summer, which received the prestigious Eisner and Ignatz awards as well as Caldecott and Printz honors. Her growing slate of critically acclaimed comics and graphic novels includes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tomb Raider, Adventure Time, She-Hulk, Lumberjanes, SUPERGIRL: BEING SUPER and NEW SUPER-MAN.

My favorite part of this Supergirl story is that her biggest problems are normal teenage girl concerns. It makes her so relatable. Thanks.

"What do you love about Supergirl?" She's clever and hardworking and has ethics and integrity!

I like that she understands human concerns and emotions but, she has super human powers to fight for what is right.
