‘DC Comics: The Big Book of Superpowers’ & ‘On the Go!’ Review – DC Super Heroes

DC Comics The Big Book of Superpowers

DC Comics: The Big Book of Superpowers and On the Go! Use classic versions of famous heroes to share knowledge about their powers and origins to kids.

DC Comics: The Big Book of Superpowers is the 17th title in the DC Super Heroes series. Morris Katz wrote it. The book is 32 pages long and covers different heroes such as Superman, Batman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, and more. The pages are full of color and the writing is easy to read for 4 to 8-year-olds.

Even though this is a kid’s book I really appreciated the art. Similar to DC Comics: The Big Book of Girl Power, this title also has characters in their classic outfits. It reminded me of why I dislike some of the current hero costumes. The classic versions possess their own charm and even though I read through this book in a few minutes, I went through it twice just for the art.

I was surprised to see that the book goes into quite a bit of detail regarding hero origins. I wasn’t expecting it to mention that Batman parents were killed by a robber. However, as far as describing character origins as easily as possible goes, this title does a very good job of it.

DC Super Heroes On the Go!DC Comics: The Big Book of Superpowers is an appropriate start for little kids to get to know about the numerous heroes in the DC comic book universe.

Coming to the 19th title in the DC Super Heroes series, On the Go! Talks about how different heroes travel. Some of them fly, others jump, and some swim, while the rest either run or use vehicles. It is written by Julie Merberg and is a 20-page board book.

On the Go! Shares some safety tips with kids as well. While talking about Batman and his Batmobile, it reminds kids to make sure they’re strapped into their car seats. On the page that has a picture of Batgirl zooming away on her bike, it advises kids to wear a helmet when riding a tricycle.

All in all, I found both titles to be very relaxing. Sure, they’re children books but I had a lot of fun reading them. I highly recommend checking these titles out. They’re sure to put a smile on your face and allow you to feel calm.

Have you read any of the books from the DC Super Heros series? Let me know.

Note: I received review copies from Downtown Bookworks.
