What it’s about: What happens lives and drama of suburban teens accidentally collide with the world of superheroes and the larger battle between good and evil?
What made me pick it up: I make sure to scoop of anything I see by Jeff Lemire, and this one is new to our library.
My favorite things: Lemire has a gift for creating believable teens and he does it with such care and understanding that it’s nearly impossible to hold their faults against them. I love the peek we get into Plutona’s life- a single mom and superhero struggling to find a sustainable work-life balance.
Who it’s great for: Fans of all things superhero. Readers who loved Paper Girls. Older teens who want both realistic fiction and superheroes in action.
