'[Dad's] got to realize I'm not a little girl anymore. I wantadventure! I want to make a difference. I'm not just an ordinarygirl.' -- Dinah 'Black Canary' Lance, ranting on page21
A personal 'must read' merely because it stars my favorite DCsuper-heroine (although Batgirl also competes for that sameranking), Ignite is a bright and uniquely illustratedgraphic novel aimed at the 'tween set per the Zoomimprint. Similarto a Stephen King character, this new adolescent version of DinahLance grapples with her burgeoning extraordinary power - a sonicscream, which can move or shatter objects - and assuming the BlackCanarycrime-fighting identity (which was previously held by hermother as a young adult) while also navigating the trials of middleschool. Fortunately, she has two best friends, loving parents, anda few caring teachers who are there tolend a helping hand orsympathetic ear. Nothing too earth-shaking in this volume, but itwas a pleasant little book.
This is intended for preteen girls so I am certainly not the targetaudience. However, I found this to be a very generic story withvery generic art. It felt too dumbed down for even its targetaudience. This was one of the worst DCZoom books I've read sofar.
