    It is a great peek into the DC Superhero Girls world. And it was free! Hope everyone grabbed it. And hope everyone grabs the Finals Crisis graphic novel. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Allen Thomas May 7, 2016

    All in all, DC Super Hero Girls is a great pick for FCBD. Its a great read for kids, as it approaches them on their level, while also giving adults a useful tool in reaching out to youngsters as they manage their own issues. Stories like this and the eventual OGN are important for diversifying the landscape of comics and having accessible media for people of all ages. Id like to see diverse characters like Katana and Bumblebee take center stage in the future, but on the whole this was an enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 8, 2016

    DC Superhero Girls Free Comic Book Day 2016 #1 Review may be a long title, but it was a quick read that everyone can enjoy. The story tells a lesson, but it's not forced and having it told through Supergirl makes it that more enjoyable. The art is great and even after reading the story, me and my son paged through the issue and pointed out all awesome characters. I guess the issue did it's job because i am now looking froward to the Finals Crisis graphic novel coming out this summer. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Adam Frey May 8, 2016

    Shea Fontana and Yancy Labat put on a competent tween-age book for the target audience and it's worth a peek for the younger readers. This is especially helpful for parents who aren't ready to let their kids into the older-oriented books of mainstream DC. Do keep in mind that the FCBDSuper Hero Girls comic is only an excerpt of the upcoming graphic novel, so kids who want more will have to come back to get the rest of the story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Jul 4, 2016

    A niche product with a specific demographic, sure, this is still light, charming reading. I'm not going to go out and recommend this to everybody I see, but what it does it does well: it re-imagines familiar characters in a new setting and uses them to tell a story that can appeal to kids. It was smart of DC to release this as a free comic book because young girls can always use more representation on the comics rack, so bringing more attention to a nice property like this can do nothing but good.
