The Kids and Teens Blog
Welcome back to Super Power Saturdays. Last week started us off with a look at teen super powers in fiction novels in the blog post Teen Super Powers. This week we will take a look at graphic novels and comics – the place that started it all, giving superheroes and super powers a place to really shine! Here are some fun graphic novel and comic picks:
- Ms. Marvel by Willow Wilson
- Electric Girl by Michael Brennan
- The Shadow Hero by Gen Luen Yang
- Princeless by Jeremy Whitley
- Foiled by Jane Yolen
- Essential Uncanny X-Men by Stan Lee
- Who is AC? by Hope Larson
- Night School by Svetlana Chmakova
- Monkey King: Birth of the Stone Monkey by Weidong Chen
For a look at Foiled, where fencing is a super power all its own, check out the book trailer below.
For links to these and other great graphic novels in our catalog see our Teen Graphic Novels - We Started It All! book list.
Also, don't forget to check back June 27th for a look at other kinds of teen powers besides just super powers in Teen Powers Abound - All Kinds of Powers!, July 11th for a look at heroes in nonfiction in Teen NonFiction Flies!, and July 25th where we wrap things up by highlighting books on how to draw your own characters and create your own stories and graphic novels in Draw Me! Write Me!.
