Dear Justice League
Written by Michael Northrop, illustrated by Gustavo Duarte, colored by Marcelo Maiolo, and lettered by Wes Abbott
This colorful and wacky graphic novel is perfect for readers young and old. The Justice League's Superheroes answer emails (and letters, in one case), from their biggest young fans asking them for life advice, the questions on friendship, or just about funny personal details of their lives. Does superman ever make mistakes? Does Green Lantern feel constrained in his fashion choices by his limited color palette? Besides having wings, does Hawkgirl share other… appetites with her avian namesake? Honest and humorous answers shown by taking us an actual day in the life of each character, assures kids it's okay to mess up and that being a superhero is not too different from being a kid. All the characters are portrayed with selfless heroism and awe-inspiring powers, but still come across as relatable, good-natured and human.
Each of the eight Superheroes have their own chapter, introducing us to their specific powers, traits and characteristics. Written so that whether the reader is unfamiliar with the Justice League or is an avid fan, the stories are fun, fresh, interesting and engaging. Also, there's an underlying story building throughout the book as each Superhero is using their own special powers to defend the earth from an alien insect invasion. The last chapter is the perfect accumulation of all of them working together to defeat the forces of evil.
A wild captivating journey from beginning to end, Dear Justice League, is a great graphic novel for readers of all ages. The graphic format presents an amazing strong visual identity and the quirky, hysterical stories are captivating. Great for all types of readers.
