    I kind of expected better from Meg Cabot. This was lame. Readable. And the art wasn't bad. But the story was kind of bad. And the characters weren't all that interesting. And kind of the worst sort of middle school stories. Oh well, it could have been worse. I kind of expe...

    I want to start by saying, I'm really loving the trend of popular YA authors taking on well-known and -loved comic book characters for reboots, prequels and the like. I think they bring a freshness to the series', along with a honed talent (generally) for piecing a story toge...

    Having been forced to preorder this book at Book Con so that I could meet Meg Cabot (I know, I know, such a tough problem to have), I'd nearly forgotten it was coming five months later. When I was preordering all I heard was Black Canary and Meg Cabot while I thought Well I love b...

    Actual Rating: 2.5 stars In theory, I like the concept behind this middle grade backstory for Black Canary: a girl finding the power of her voice after being told she is too loud and pushing back against overprotective parents to make a difference in the world. In practice, Dinah co...

    Safer than the rest. Black Canary had a good start. Its definitely not as mature as some of the other Dc Zoom. At parts where I thought would be cliche, it actually surprised me... until the end. It had a good pace, it wasn't too over the top. The art was great, I really liked...

    Very YA, very fast-paced, very forgettable. Dinah Lance aka Black Canary discovers her superpower as well as her superheroine lineage while just trying to be a regular ol' high school kid. It's tough to be a teen with a powerful voice! The villain is barely even silly. Dinah&...

    I am slowly learning more and more about the DC Universe and the various characters in it. I had heard of Black Canary before, but didn't know much about her, so when I saw this being offered on NetGalley, I hit "request" and crossed my fingers! I am very thankful I was ...

    This review was originally posted on my review blog Deanna Reads Books I am really loving the middle grade graphic novels that are coming out of DC Zoom lately. Black Canary is the second one I've read, I've previously read Raven by Kami Garcia. I was really excited to get ...

    This is a sweet story about a young woman finding her gift and a purpose in the world. She confronts her police detective father about joining the Gotham City Junior Police Academy, but he says Dina is just too young and it?s too dangerous. I liked this release from DC Zoom. It?...

    I loved this!!!! Told through the voice of Dinah, seemingly ordinary girl who likes to sing and rock a guitar in a girl band. Little does she know her mother has secret and its gonna flip her world upside down! Face-paced, middle school story that is SUPER all the way through!! #Netg...

    The cover is pitch perfect for this Black Canary origin story. Dinah Lance is trying to get ready for the Battle of the Bands and finds that her voice seems to be out of control. Can she stay in Gotham and hone her skills or will she have to move to Florida to get away from her nemesis...

    While I greatly enjoyed the feminist message Meg Cabot was imparting on young readers, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass does it so much better. Sorry DC Zoom, you're a little too middle grade for my tastes; I'll be sticking to DC Ink. While I greatly enjoyed the feminist messa...

    I received this thru a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for a honest review. I would like to thank the author and the publishing company for their generosity. In this one, we get to see Dinah Lance as a teenager in school as she discovers that she has the canary cry while trying to fi...

    DNF at page 42. I don't usually DNF graphics, much less middle grade ones, but this is just painful to read. It's an awkward mix of stereotypical middle school story meets the worst of comics writing. The art I like though. DNF at page 42. I don't usually DNF graphi...

    A bit mild, clunky and generic, but this one line near the end as things became super ridiculous just made me laugh my head off for a very long time: (view spoiler)["You became a middle school teacher just to get revenge on my mother?" (hide spoiler)] Intentional or not, it ...

    This is intended for preteen girls so I am certainly not the target audience. However, I found this to be a very generic story with very generic art. It felt too dumbed down for even its target audience. This was one of the worst DC Zoom books I've read so far. This is intended...

    BLACK CANARY: IGNITE is a really precious middle-grade comic about Dinah Lance in middle school. She is figuring out her powers and struggling with wanting to make a difference in the world but feeling so young and restricted. It's a great portrayal of who Dinah is at her core...

    I can't tell if I don't like this because it's middle grade or because it's Meg Cabot. Admittedly, I haven't liked her much since I was fourteen. The main issue here is that it's basically the very beginning of a story and not much else. There aren't ...

    I LOVED this book so much! The art is so cute and expressive! The plot and dialogue is so fun! An excellent graphic novel to read if you're looking for a feel good story. As part of the DC Zoom line this is targeted for much younger audiences (Which is why I found this in the Chil...
