When I requested this book, I was expecting a comic so I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is a book with comic panels interspersed throughout.
Not being a Batman expert, I thought the story was well-written and portrayed the characters how I am familiar with them. I thought the panels of artwork were very well done. The writing is engaging and would be great for an advanced reader. As an educator, I appreciate the rich vocabulary used as well as the detailed descriptions and complex sentence structure. Netgalley noted that the book contained "visual discussion questions, and writing prompts to enhance visual literacy and improve critical reading skills." The questions are well-written and provide a great jumping off point that any parent or teacher could extend even further.
I enjoyed this book and would look for more books like it to share with my son and other young readers. I believe that children should always be able to just read something they enjoy; with this book, they will also increase their literacy skills through great writing and vocabulary.
This book is a fun read; a great combination of chapter book and graphic novel, it will hold readers’ interests with the fast-paced action and Luciano Vecchio’s intense art. Vecchio is well-versed in DC artwork, handling art duties on Beware the Batman, Young Justice, and the Green Lantern Animated Series. Matthew K. Manning, the Bat-scribe here, is a well-known comic writer whose work I really like; here, he doesn’t talk down or over his audience. He’s right where the kids need him to be, and, with Vecchio, creates a fun adventure.
Enhanced content, including comics terms and a glossary of words used in the story, and discussion questions, round out the book.
