Standing for truth, justice and equality, the iconic Super Hero serves as inspiration for the book, which features 200 pages of profiles and portraits of 23 pioneering women from around the globe.

The talented roster of contributing creatives includes DC veterans Corinna Bechko (GREEN LANTERN: EARTH ONE, VOL. 1), Cecil Castelucci (BATGIRL), Amanda Deibert (SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN), Kami Garcia (TEEN TITANS: RAVEN), Cat Staggs (SENSATION COMICS FEATURING WONDER WOMAN), Danielle Paige (MERA: TIDEBREAKER), and Magdalene Visaggio (ETERNITY GIRL), along with talented writers and artists new to DC who all introduce a global collection of trailblazing women with compelling profiles designed to inspire and educate young readers.
I am so excited to be part of the tour for Barb the Last Berzerker by Dan Abdo & Jason Patterson, hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power meets Dav Pilkey’s Dog Man in this side-splitting graphic novel about a young Berzerker who has to rescue her fellow warriors from the evil villain Witch Head before he destroys the world!
Unearthed is the first graphic novel from acclaimed YA author Lilliam Rivera (Never Look Back) and rising illustrator Steph C., featuring a reimagined origin for Jessica Cruz, one of DC’s brightest young stars. As her home of Coast City is plagued by rising xenophobia, Jessica must navigate the challenges of life as a DREAMer in this honest and emotional exploration of the immigrant experience in America. Through Jessica’s bravery and determination, Rivera and C. show readers that even without a power ring, the best among us can be heroes when called upon.
