Thank you to Penguin Random House DC Zoom, for sending me an ARC copy of this graphic novel!
I’ve been able to read quite a few graphic novels this year and I am loving it! This is Meg Cabot’s (Author of everyone’s favourite, Princess Diaries!) first graphic novel, I ended up really enjoying it, I thought it was a quick and fun read!
I really liked the art style in this book and I thought that the characters were really well written. Black Canary is about 13 year old Dinah Lance, she’s just trying to figure out and she knows what she wants to do with her life. Follow in her fathers footsteps and help defeat the bad guys of Gotham but her father doesn’t want that because it’s a dangerous life.
When helping her mum with the store, a mysterious person comes in and threatens Black Canary but Dinah doesn’t know why they would threaten her which forces her mum to reveal her secret of her past life.
I found this to be a fun, short and sweet novel to read, it was relatable and it was great as even the side characters were so well written, even though it’s a middle grade I believe it’s a good read for anyone who enjoys the DC universe! I definitely recommend and I also recommend you check out other DC Graphic Novels that I’ve read this year that were also good – will link to my reviews to them!
