2018 Christmas Gift Review & Giveaway - DC Comics: Secret Hero Society Detention of Doom

Around this grandma's house the Marvel Universe is at the top of my grandson's favorites list, but I do believe, while they are loyal Marvel Universe fans, they will very much enjoy the book Scholastic sent me to review.

DC Comics: Secret Hero Society Detention of Doom
Author - Derek Fridolfs
Illustrator - Dustin Nguyen
Publisher - Scholastic
Ages - 8-12

Favorite Features -
  • Fun graphic novel format - my grandsons enjoy this type of book.
  • Story about favorite DC characters as children - Bat Man, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Arrow and Superman.
Scholastic says; "When Lex Luthor's family company, Lexcorp(TM), invites kids from all over the country to attend an honors ceremony, Clark Kent is happy to participate. This is, until his award trophy creates a portal to another dimension and sucks him in! Lucky for Clark, his old friends Bruce and Diana along with newer friends Barry (The Flash(TM)) and Ollie (Green Arrow(TM)) are on the case! They'll have to travel to an alternate dimension to free their friend from Lex Luthor's grasp (and the worst detention ever) in this all-new adventure from Eisner Award winner Dustin Nguyen and Eisner Award nominee Derek Fridolfs."

My grandsons enjoy stories about super heros, portals to other dimensions and rescuing someone from the bad guy . . . they are sure to enjoy DC Comics: Secret Hero Society Detention of Doom. I love books which capture the interest of new readers and show them how fun it is to read, as well as those who have been reading for some time, and this one is sure to do so.
