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

- 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.
