  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 June #1
    In our all-superhero, all-the-time media culture, it's nice to find a new twist every now and then, and Northrop (Tombquest) supplies an enjoyable one for DC's Zoom imprint for young readers. As the Justice League answers fan mail, we catch the heroes in unexpected moments. Aquaman worries he might smell like fish. Wonder Woman remembers when she overdid it on birthday cake. Batman recalls when he was the new kid in town. Superman texts while he's flying, unleashing a slapstick chain of disasters (curiously reminiscent of Superman III) that he must rush to undo. Northrop's freewheeling tenor captures the fun in each situation but allows them to humanize the heroes as well, poking humorous holes in the likes of Batman's foreboding manner and Aquaman's swaggering braggadocio. Duarte matches this sensibility with heroically gleaming figures whose characteristics are amusingly exaggerated just enough to pull them a little closer to earth. He also tones down the action from DC's occasionally brutal cinematics to a more comfortable level. Grades 1-4. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
