Reader's Diary #1977- Shea Fontana (writer), Yancey Labat (artist): DC Super Hero Girls Date With Disaster

I'm glad there are female lead superhero titles and I'm glad that there are some more child-friendly superhero comics, but Shea Fontana and Yancey Labat's DC Super Hero Girls: Date With Disaster isn't exactly memorable.

The story is fine and fun, though some of the girls on the team seem to be poor fits as superheros for those familiar with their more complex mature story lines. Still, I guess some of their personalities and attributes are kept in tact (Harley Quinn's accent for example) and I was exposed to some characters that I'd not come across before (such as the Wasp knock-off, Bumble Bee).

The art, though bright, was also not my cup of tea. All the characters looked like Bratz Dolls (especially off-putting for Commissioner Gordon), and looked done by a computer; which is not a problem per se just not my own personal preference.
