Super Young Team was very briefly introduced in Final Crisis, and Dance is what they did after. There's some interesting skewering of celebrity culture and the like in here, and I liked having the narration being done in the form of Most Excellent Superbat's (sometimes perceptive, sometimes funny) tweets. That said, these are supposed to be Japanese teenagers, and I just wasn't getting that. For example, Shy Crazy Lolita Canary is wearing a (very, very basic) school uniform, not lolita. And the full names are just silly. Yes, the manga is indeed called Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, but her name is just Sailor Moon. Which is why the manga would be called Shiny Happy Aquazon, but her name would be just Aquazon, in my opinion. Most of the time, the characters don't even use the full titles themselves. Basically, it reads like somebody hasn't really done a lot of research here.

The interior art is all over the place, which is hardly surprising. There are six issues collected here, and at least three artists. It's not that it's bad, just inconsistent. The cover art is very pretty, though I don't understand why the artist is under the impression that Canary is blonde (she has dark hair).

Dan Schwent You're a trooper plowing through these Final Crisis tie-ins.

Sesana Five down, four more to go. Sigh.
