I didn’t like this book at all. For me it was a generous 2/5. That being said, I totally see the potential for younger reader. It was an easy, colorful and fun «origin» story of teenage girls heroes. It is nothing out of a super-hero comic, but it’s more of a kid cartoon involving teen heroes. Can be good to introduce a new generation to those super-heroes. Like I said, good for kids but not sure the old school comic book veteran like myself will find much in it. Potential for kid 4/5, I will go ...more

I really enjoy this book!
The book focuses on the relationship between girls, their friendship, and how they deal with the real world, powerlessness, adapting and learning more about themselves!

No thanks. I liked the previous Super Hero Girls well enough -- they weren't the best comics had to offer, by any means, but they offered a quick, fun read with kid friendly takes on popular characters. I was unsure about this version, as I wasn't sold on the art style, and the short I watched was subpar. But then, it wasn't like I was sure about the first iteration before I read it, so I tried to give it a fair shot.

Yeah. That didn't last long. First, it's so boring that they appear to be at a

First it is smaller than the Super Hero High School series of graphic novels, making the word balloons harder to read. I had to use a magnifying glass. The art has dropped into caricatures. ..
Second it rewrites it to a regular school, not one for supers.
Third all the characters like Harley Quinn, etc are back to being flat out villains, and Supergirl et al have their basic personalities rewritten for the worse.
In short it has been transformed into a new version of Teen Titans G

Supergirl, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, and Zatanna are all required to join a school club to show their school spirit. They can barely find time to attend classes between superhero crime-fighting, so how will they find time to join club activities? They find out that it's harder than it seems to stay in a club without getting kicked out by their frustrated classmates. If they want to find a club where they can fit in and learn something new, they will have to change their th ...more

Being a super hero is hard enough, but for Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, Supergirl, Batgirl, and Zatanna they must balance their super hero lives with protecting their super hero identities, all while navigating the world of high school...and they haven’t been doing too great lately. So, their principal tells each girl she must join an after-school club for a whole week, then report on what they’ve learned, or it’s bye-bye Metropolis High. Can the girls save themselves?

Thank you to @dccomics and @dczoombooks for an advance copy of DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High written by Amy Wolfram and illustrated by Yancey Labat. This graphic novel was released October 15, 2019. All opinions are my own.

Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, and Zatanna are constantly late to school. Upon their most recent tardy, their principal gives them an ultimatum: join an after school club and give a presentation at the

I read these with my niece, and we were both really enjoying the continuity established by Shea Fontana's comics and the cartoon movies. While it's good to see characters like Zatanna and Jessica Cruz, and some variations in skin color and body type amongst the characters, I find this version of DCSHG very sub par in comparison. The girls and the stories are one dimensional punch ups and frenetic battles instead of stories about friendship and forgiveness and a lot of other topics my niece found ...more

“DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High,” by Amy Wolfram and Yancy Labat is a fun graphic novel about friendship and teamwork! Our favorite Super Hero Girls are in trouble with the school principal and forced to join after school clubs when they would rather be fighting crime. Their first attempt at choosing clubs turns out be a disaster because they chose clubs that they are too good at, then they pick clubs that do not match their superpowers and each learn

I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for a review.

This is a really cute introduction to graphic novels/comics for younger ages. I teach middle grades and i could see this being popular with the 8-10 year old crowd.

This book focused on a group of teenage superhero girls and their experiences learning to balance life between superhero antics and high school. They are often late to class because of their superhero duties so the principa

Other reviewers were right when they said it had a Breakfast Club feel. Primarily female characters trying to navigate discovering themselves and how they fit into the world within the restrictions of high school. Engaging art.
Definitely aimed at the younger set (under 10 yrs old).
Despite having a "message" it was not terribly preachy. Would appeal to those who like stories about friendship and school in addition to those seeking stories about their favorite character. There are introduct

Origin story? What origin story? This book for the under-tens takes a bundle of badly-drawn juvenile superheroes, whether we have ever met them or not, and makes them do after-school activities, so they can't use the powers we came along to watch them use. But luckily enough Ms Luthor is around to pep things up, as are other various other people from school they somehow fail to recognise… Gaudy, childish and rather weak, this is another failure for the incipient DC Zoom imprint, much along the l ...more

Super fun book !
I like this iteration of the DC Super Hero Girls as much as I like the original one and I'm never disappointed even though the stories are quite simple and meant for kids. I like the cartoon a lot and this felt like watching an episode so it was really great. The overall story arch was fun, I liked how it mixed their high school life and super heroing, and Lena Luthor is amazingly bonkers. As a Supergirl fan, this was a nice read as it didn't shy away from her complicated feelin

I received this graphic novel from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

All in all, I still had fun reading it though I was quite confused. I miss that our girls are barely interacting outside of their friend group, that is what I loved in the Shea Fontana series, everyone was together and no matter if they were going to be baddies or not they were friends. I won't be continuing this series.

Review to come in October.

This was a sweet graphic novel. I love me some superheroes and it was fun to read about them in their teens. I recognized most of them, even though I'm not a hardcore comic reader. The illustrations were light and went well with the all around feel of the story.
I really think this would suit middle grade-kids well. There's friendship, superpowers, villains, action and rubber ducks - what more could you ask for?

Thank you Netgalley and DC Entertainment for the free copy!

This Super fun and cute book has an adorable message about friendship and trying new things. The art and style of storytelling reminds me of the new My little pony series. I think this comic is perfect for building a new Graphic Novel section in a library.

Not quite as fun as the other version of DC Super Hero Girls. My kids and I prefer it when the likes of Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, etc. are included among the heroes. Still, I guess it was an OK little tale.

This was a cute shot story, however somethings didn't land quit right with me. First, it should be known that I am in the camp of being a fan of the old animation style of the Youtube shorts and not this new cartoon. It just looked better in my opinion. I really didn't like what they did with Super Girl's personality in this story. It was vastly different from how we usually see her and did not work. If you are looking to get antiquated with different super heroes that are a little lesser known ...more

A total reboot of the franchise. I'm sorry I don't like this incarnation quite as well. I certainly don't like the art as well. Maybe this is bringing it in closer to the cartoon?

Being a superfan of the DC Super Hero Girls and the comic book series, I was so excited to preview this comic because I knew this adventure would be just as exciting than the last. When it comes to school, superheroes always struggle with protecting their secret identity and when school becomes trouble, they must think
