Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 September #1
    DC continues their Teen Titans line of origin stories with a focus here on Beast Boy. Garfield wants to be bigger, but no matter how much he eats or exercises, he can't seem to gain weight or bulk. When Gar decides to research the supplement his parents have been giving him, he learns that it's interfering with his pituitary gland, and after throwing it away, he becomes bigger and stronger in mere days. Once he becomes part of the "in" crowd due to his size and pranks, his crush begins to notice him, but there's also a lurking, shadowy figure who promises to answer all of his questions—especially after Gar, now known as Beast Boy, discovers he can morph into animal form. Picolo's beautifully expressive artwork relies on a muted color palette that focuses on greens. The speech bubbles are easy to follow, set in a mixture of traditional panels and gorgeous splash pages of Gar's transformations. A great choice for both new and seasoned DC readers. Grades 6-8.
