Gr 7 Up—What do a pet shop employee, a busy mom, a manly construction worker, and a goldfish all have in common? They are the four warriors who were long ago prophesied to lead the universe into a new age. Together they explore their new superpowers and, in some cases, new looks. Amie learns that she can heal rapidly and has super strength; Sandy discovers her powers of flight; Kevin has the ability to morph into a Sailor Moon-style character, complete with pink costume and staff; and Silas turns from a simple goldfish into an ultrapowerful magical whale. Not only do these characters battle the forces of evil, they also explore issues such as friendship, gender norms, sexuality, acceptance, and love. For example, when burly Kevin transforms, his body remains the same but he wears a pink dress with a heart-shaped bow. The others don't make a big deal about it, and the only time the wardrobe change is addressed is when Amie asks, "Um…what's with the outfit?"—to which Kevin replies, "It's my armor." This title is among the ever-growing new generation of graphic novels that are extremely entertaining and cover important topics. The vibrant illustrations add humor to this creative story. VERDICT For fans of "Lumberjanes," "Miss Marvel," and Nimona.—Annalise Ammer, Henrietta Public Library, NY

I was promised that this would be good. And it totally was. Some of the panels were a little busy and therefore hard to follow but a lot of fun. Also really happy to have a completely self-contained comic even if there was room to do a lot more. The characters are all fun and thoughtfully developed. Who doesn't love an unlikely superhero story?
