DC continues its DC Super Hero Girls middle grade graphic novel series with new stories told by animation and comics writer Amy Wolfram and illustrator Yancey Labat. DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High tells an original story starring Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern as well as other popular characters which is also set in the same universe as the DC Super Hero Girls animated series on Cartoon Network.
A new era of DC Super Hero Girls begins in DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High!
When Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, and Zatanna are continually late to class because of their crime-fighting, they are sentenced to finding an after-school club for a whole week … or else they’ll be suspended!
But finding a club is not as easy as it looks, and when the girls keep finding themselves kicked out of the clubs they like, they must think outside of the box and go outside their comfort zones to avoid suspension. Just when they thought secret identities and balancing school with super-heroics had enough challenges!
DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High continues to develop the relationships forged throughout the beloved DC Super Hero Girls series. This story is perfect for ages 6-10 and a great entry point into the DC Universe and graphic novels.
These graphic novels are targeted to readers ages 8-12 and I have both an 8 and 11 year old girl and they both enjoy the series but my 11 year old is OBSESSED with the series. She will sit and read a graphic novel then re-read it again immediately. She loves super heroes and she loves that this series focuses on girls! In this book the super characters are all off saving the world but that makes them late for school. As punishment they must find a club but that is easier said than done! On a side note my 11 year starts middle school next year and is already excited at the thought of joining clubs after school because this book makes them seem interesting and fun. This series focuses on friendship and girl power and as a mom of 3 girls I LOVE that! This is a great series to get girls interested in graphic novels.
