    1. Another buddy read with my little Supergirl!Sophie's review: <--because her's is the MOST importantAll five stars!It was good. It was very kid-like, and I liked that a lot. I didn't like that you didn't get to see the Bat-cave. My favorite character was Batman, because he had the coolest stuff. Like, he didn't have his Bat-belt, so he used his regular belt to swing from a tree. And he saved Little Superman (*giggles* I don't know what to call him) and Wonder Woman from being turned evil.But I [...]

    2. So fun! I love Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs "Lil Gotham" and this appeared to be just as delightful.did not disappoint. It's a fun what if of the school AU variety that is very popular in fanfic, reimagining the Caped Crusader, Man of Steel and ian Princess as elementary school kids investigating super shady shit at their new school. Like NINJAS. So. Many. Ninjas.Anyone with passing familiarity with the universe with recognize the students and teachers alike (Pamela Isley? Victor Fries? Brai [...]

    3. I was hoping Secret Hero Society would be similar to the Batman: Li'l Gotham comic series, especially as it features the same creative team of Derek Fridolfs and Dustin Nguyen. There's a certain familiarity to the artwork and humour, but rather than a comic, this is an age-appropriate kids book consisting of a mixture of black and white sketches, journal entries and other assorted texts. Still, the book is an easy and entertaining read for all young super hero fans to enjoy.Bruce Wayne enrols in [...]

    4. Batman, Superman, and Wonderwoman team up and investigate their new school!I have been meaning to read this since this one came out, sadly I never had the chance until now! I am not a big DC/Marvel reader, but I do know the characters and I do enjoy reading some comics. So I was pretty excited to see Batman, Superman, and Wonderwoman team up. Though not as adults, but as kids. And all of them are still discovering who they are and what they can do.For instance Clark is slowly finding out his pow [...]

    5. This read was quite a bit of fun. I didn't know what to expect going into it, but what I got was entertaining.Middle school aged Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman: Why not?Solving mysteries at a young age, trying not to break the rules as they go.It's worth the read, especially if you are a fan of the original stories. Alternate universes that are done well are great. For a young adult, adult, or kid, this book could entertain anyone. I look forward to more of the series.

    6. I love this book so much. I like that they made a story of villains and heroes in middle school. It's amazing how Bruce, Kent, and, Diana at the same school. It's got funny parts and serious parts. This is like me because in the book Bruce is trying to get use to middle school and I don't understand that much of middle school yet.

    7. "The dos and don’ts to pulverize your opponent:•Do fight•Do cheat •Do steal •Don’t play fair •Don’t be a good sportGive Out Discipline Or Be Disciplined!!!"This was exquisitely cute. I really enjoyed the mix of how the story is laid out. It switches from comics to private messages to surveillance stills and even private diary entries. As an entire whole, this was a well thought out kiddie mystery with some of our favorite villains and heroes. Can’t wait to continue this wacky s [...]

    8. An interesting take on the DC universe. The use of notes and and journal entries was a neat way to tie together sections. And then there's that moment when I realized that the kid I was looking at in a panel was a young version of the Joker.

    9. ¿Como sería el DC Universe en la primaria?Algo tipo JL8 pero escrito por alguien más. Está bonito y sonso y divertido :3

    10. Reviewed first at Brunner's BookshelfSo the hype behind Batman v Superman is so huge that so many things have spun off from this movie. My kids loved the cereal that hit grocery store shelves. Not only have food companies and car companies found a way to make money off this movie but a lot of kids books have come out. I love the fact that this movie created more books because I love to read and anytime my kids are excited to read I will make myself broke buying books for them. My son is 6 and in [...]

    11. My Thoughts I picked these up at my daughters book fair for her and decided to read it myself. I loved the characters and thought it was really cute to see them as young kids. Each with the personality of their adult counterparts.I found the story to be very cute.I wasn't sure if I liked who it is presented. The back and forth between characters and the way the story is told is a little all over the place. Probably really cute for kids and they would enjoy it but as an adult I was looking for mo [...]

    12. EARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineIn this graphic novel, young Bruce Wayne is being sent to a new private school, Ducald (in my copy, Doomvale in the description) Academy. He is surprised to see that bad behavior is encouraged, and that the teachers all seem fairly evil as well. He is bedeviled by students like Joe Kerr and the other class clowns, but does make an uneasy friendship with farm boy Clark, who wants to be a reporter, and foreign exchange student Diana. The three try to investig [...]

    13. Should a school age Bryce Wayne be fun? Why does Batman in middle school sound like fun? I didn't go in thinking this kids graphic novel was going to be that good. I didn't think it'd hold my attention and make it hard to put down. I knew the art would be beautiful. Dustin Nguyen's art is always amazing. He doesn't disappoint. Plus he's the perfect artist for kid batman. The writing was where I was surprised. I wasn't excepting Derrek Fridolfs to write anything special, but he did!A quick look a [...]

    14. I had high hopes for this one, but I was disappointed. I like the idea of "superheros as kids" and I like the idea of a story told in multiple forms (cartoons, diary entries, online chat conversations, etc.), but unfortunately this just didn't work for me. The graphics are extremely minimalist, and while it's a cool effect, it made the story harder to follow. When there's not many words, readers (particularly my middle grade students) rely on the pictures, and sometimes it was hard to figure out [...]

    15. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are all kids, pre-superheroes and all enrolled in a school with a dark secret. Told in comics, text messages, emails, journal entries, lists, this disjointed and fragmented narrative attempts to tell a story but I don't think it's very successful. The same criticism I have with many of DC's publications for kids like Tiny Titans, I found this to be yet another collection of inside DCU continuity jokes and obscure references that kids won't likely get. My ARC did [...]

    16. This book is about Clark’s, Diana’s, and Bruce’s past when they were in high school. This book is amazing not only because they are DC comics but also this book is more like an extra side story. Furthermore, the art is also great! My favorite part was when Ducard high school had a Halloween party. Bruce dressed up as batman, Diana and Clark did the same so they revealed their hero identities as costumes! Then after that Bruce got mad because when they were texting each other he asked them [...]

    17. Nguyen's art is as pretty as ever and Fridolfs has a lot fun playing around with the characters, but the story is a bit rushed and disjointed. The way the story gets told is original and keeps things from getting stale, but it also interferes with the narrative. I enjoyed it, but it was mostly from finding easter eggs and seeing how classic elements were included and transformed into a school environment. I'm not sure a younger or casual reader would find them as interesting as I did.

    18. Dustin Nguyen is my favorite comic artist, so each page was a treat. There were lots of Easter eggs for die-hard DC fans, and the pace was multifaceted. Lots of text messages, group chats, journal entries, along with the regular comic format. It is brilliant introduction to graphic novels for younger readers, while still entertaining for older readers who already know the drill.

    19. Ufff This was supposed to be fun. Well the first half was, the second was just boring and a not ao good mash up of almost every bad superhero movie. Disappointed.

    20. This graphic novel is set at Ducard Academy. A young Bruce Wayne, Clark Kent and Diana Prince have just been accepted to this prestigious school. However, when they get there, they all have a feeling that something is off. They are bullied by clown-faced classmates, shady instructors and the reader can see ninjas in the background. They decide to meet in the library, however, they soon realize that school's vigilant central computer system/librarian, is watching their every move. They decide to [...]

    21. I adored the art!! The not very detailed black and white drawings were fabulous! Really! But I've been reading black and white manga since I was 12 so maybe I'm a bit biased. And yes, I prefer black and white to dull colors!I bought this on a whim and I didn't know what it was about. I mean, I knew there were young Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman and that was enough. I like the private school setting but I was wondering how the principal could invite Bruce, Clark and Diana to a school for vill [...]

    22. I had high hopes for this. I'm a DC girl, and I thought it would be cool to see a new spin on our favorite heroes as kids. I liked the format, which was a mixture of journal entries, texts/IMs, and graphics. Still, it fell a little flat for me. It had some good messages, but I didn't really feel anything while reading. The illustrations were vague and rudimentary--I couldn't tell Diana from the other girls in most of the drawings, and had a hard time telling Bruce apart from some of the other ch [...]

    23. A patron returned this the other day, and I couldn't help picking it up. This was a cute little read, obviously meant for a younger audience, but also clearly written by fans of the DC Comics who wanted to do the characters justice. The idea is a clever one: kid-versions of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are accidentally enrolled in a school that specializes in super-villainy. There were a lot of nice nods to the comics that would go over kids' heads, but that could give parents reading alon [...]

    24. I dug it. It was simple, kind of like an "ABC's" of a Batman's "Who's Who." The first volume. The drawrings were ok. I don't pay a LOT of attention to drawrings, but I did in this instance because they I sometimes had trouble determining which person was what in certain scenes. A lot of the kids looked the same to me. And if I was a kid I'd grab my crayons and totally have at this one. Black and white, slightly blurry comics are a difficulty and a nuisance.The plot, though, was great. Better for [...]
