Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Superhero origin stories are a dime a dozen, but this story from the early career of a fan favorite is clever and engrossing. In the action-packed plot, author Kami Garcia shows the depths of Raven's insecurities without turning her into an angsty drag. The diverse supporting cast fits the well-depicted New Orleans setting. Gabriel Picolo's illustrations are lively, expressive, and kinetic, with only a couple of instances of unclear storytelling. Fans of the Teen Titans in comics and animated cartoons will enjoy this revamped, more realistic version of Raven. Her story here is only just beginning, but it's off to a very promising start.
