This graphic novel is PERFECTION! The questions being asked of the super heroes might seem simple yet the questions are HILARIOUS and ones I had never though of before. The dear Aquaman chapter might be my favorite as he was asked if he always smells like fish. You then get to see how he goes about finding out if he indeed smells like fish as it appears he never thought about it before. The idea of superheroes checking their emails makes me (and my girls) chuckle. The illustrations are colorful and perfectly paired with the burning questions that kids want to know. This graphic novel would be especially great for reluctact readers, boys, girls, tweens, teens and even adults! The graphic novel is now available at stores everywhere books are sold.
