Stuck at home? Now’s a perfect time to introduce kids to graphic novels from DC Comics and some of your favorite DC characters.
From the Superman comics during World War II that defeated Hitler, to the Superman radio show that changed public opinion of the KKK, to the surge in superhero popularity today, superheroes have a long history of instilling hope in times of unrest, especially for kids.
DC’s new middle grade graphic novels offer stories told by some of the most successful authors in the kids’ publishing space like Shannon Hale, Meg Cabot, Ridley Pearson, Minh Lê, Michael Northrop and more. The titles are standalone stories, not part of DC’s ongoing continuity, and completely accessible to new readers who have no previous knowledge of DC characters.
DC Comics Girl Power Reads from Meg Cabot (Princess Diaries), Shannon Hale (Real Friends, Best Friends), Matthew Cody (Powerless) and Kate Karyus Quinn & Demitria Lunetta
Superhero reads from Minh Lê (Drawn Together), Michael Northrop (Tombquest), Ridley Pearson (Kingdom Keepers) and Art & Franco (Super Pets, Tiny Titans)
For fans of humor & journal-format reads like Diary of a Wimpy Kid:
