Skye Shin has heard it all. Fat girls shouldn’t dance. Wear bright colors. Shouldn’t call attention to themselves. But Skye dreams of joining the glittering world of K-Pop, and to do that, she’s about to break all the rules that society, the media, and even her own mother, have set for girls like her.
Third book in the Teen Titans graphic novel series, Beast Boy Loves Raven finally lets our favorite, teen superhero couple meet and fall in love! While hunting for answers, Raven and Garfield find themselves in the same city, although they have no clue they are there to meet the same man who claims to have the details they're searching for. With time to kill, they hang out with each other and find they have more than just a little in common. This book engages with topics such as abduction and human trafficking, superheroes, and found family.
Sequel to Raven and introduction to our favorite green shape-shifter, Beast Boy, this graphic novel expands on what we know about Beast Boy from the tv show and DC comics. We learn about how Beast Boy discovers his powers, as well as what circumstances lead to eventually meeting Raven. The artwork is just as stunning as the first book, if not expanded in color and style. This book engages with topics such as animal activism, high school popularity, and body dysmorphia.
As a fan of the classic Teen Titans animated tv show I grew up with in the 2000s, I was very excited to read the first in this graphic novel series. It elaborates on the origin of Raven, a sort of dark-sorceress, half demon superhero who has lost her memory in a car crash with her mother and is rediscovering herself for the second time. The artwork is stunning and original, and the story itself left me very eager to read the next books in the series, Beast Boy, Beast Boy Loves Raven, and Robin. This book engages with topics such as grief, super powers, and self discovery.
