    Im a huge fan of graphic novels so this book looks super cool. I have read other books in this series but have never seen them in graphic form!

    I originally had to read this book as a summer assignment for a class, but once I opened it, I simply couldn't put it down. From the start, you're immersed in O'Brien's world. At the time, he's a young man with his whole life ahead of him, sent to fight in the war in Vietnam. Through each of his stories, you're able to paint a picture of everyone he knew, the ones they loved and the ones they lost. Perhaps one of the most accurate depictions of life as a war veteran and an eye-opening recollection on American values, 'The Things They Carried' will make you experience a wide range of emotions, all the while rejuvenating your inner sense of patriotism.

    Like Batman or Aquaman? Want to learn more about Wonder Women? This book is perfect for you! I love superheroes so this book was a super fun read for me. In so many comic books, the characters are mainly portrayed in action scenes and fighting sequences so it is often hard to find common ground or feel like you can relate to them but this book sheds entirely new light on my favorite superheroes. We learn so many new and random facts about superheroes and what their everyday lives/personalities look like and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves the DC universe as much as I do! The amazing illustrations also made it more like a high-quality graphic novel which made the read more entertaining and engaging. A must read!

    Did you know that super heroes are...NOT PERFECT?!?! That's right superheroes are not perfect! You'll see why as you dive or should I say fly into this wonderfully written and drawn comic book! Each Justice League member is puzzled as they each receive an email which they don't quite know the answer to. Bat Man is asked if he ever makes mistakes, Aquaman is asked if he smells like fish, Wonder Woman is asked about her childhood, Green Lantern is asked about fashion, Cyborg is challenged to an online game, Hawkgirl is asked about what she eats, and Flash is (almost!) made fun of. Each team member questions themselves as they go through another day of saving the world! This super (get it!) book walks you through the comical and truthful behind the scenes life and thoughts of a super hero and teaches us all an important lesson. Nobody's perfect, but as long as you're kind and work together, anything is possible!
