Meet the Super Hero Girls


We're going to take a break -- only temporarily -- from Michigan and celebrate the first ever all ages original graphic novel featuring the DC Super Hero Girls, Finals Crisis. It goes on sale today and I am so glad to be part of the fun. I don't generally read graphic novels, but I enjoyed very much meeting the DC Super Hero Girls. I loved my high school classmates, but it would have been extraordinary to attend high school with Wonder Woman, Bat Girl, Super Girl and Bumblebee and friends. It's tough to be in high school and even tougher for super heroes. Their finals involve dealing with Super-Villains. 

I've always been fascinated by superheroes starting with Superman in elementary school -- and for girls today, it's great to have female superhero models and these girls are so much fun. I've wondered what super power I would pick for myself if that were ever a possibility and Bumblebee, the Social Butterfly -- front left of the cover above -- has both enhanced strength and the ability to shrink. She can secretly find out what mischief Super-Villains are planning. Like every bumblebee she can fly.   

If you were picking a super power (or two!) which one(s) would you choose? I'm going with flying and the ability to shrink. Look forward to knowing your choices.

I'm grateful to DC Super Hero Girls for a review copy and the chance to meet the talented and fun Super Hero Girls. The opinions are all mine.

I will be back tomorrow with more pictures of Michigan and lots more fun. Mackinac Island was beautiful and I have photographs (and more photographs) to share.

As ever, thanks for visiting and have a wonderful Wednesday!

Not familiar with Bumble Bee.

My super powers would be flying and be invisible. :)

What a great idea for a comic. This looks like just the thing young girls would love. Bumblebee sounds intriguing, indeed. I'd pick TIME TRAVEL as a power that would fun to possess.

Super hearing? Or, does that just mean I'm nosy?

A question for you? When did "comic books" (I was a huge fan of Superman comic books when I was growing up) change to being called "graphic novels"? Being of a certain age, it's hard for me to think of them as novels--graphic or otherwise.

Buttercup, yes, I would go for flying and maybe invisable. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I, like most people, would want to fly. Imagine if that were possible. There would probably be traffic gridlock in the sky.
