Nubia has always been a little bit...different. As a baby she showcased Amazon-like strength by pushing over a tree to rescue her neighbor's cat. But despite her having similar abilities, the world has no problem telling her that she's no Wonder Woman. And even if she were, they wouldn't want her. Every time she comes to the rescue, she's reminded of how people see her: as a threat. Her moms do their best to keep her safe, but Nubia can't deny the fire within her, even if she's a little awkward about it sometimes. Even if it means people assume the worst.
When Nubia's best friend, Quisha, is threatened by a boy who thinks he owns the tow more

    Flickering Myth - Erika Hardison Feb 23, 2021

    Nubia is an ideal read for middle grade and young adult readers who like or want to get into comics and graphic novels. But realistically, Nubia: Real One is for everybody. It's for the people who crave more character development from their heroines. It's also for the people who haven't forgotten that superheroes are the first social justice warriors we loved.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Feb 23, 2021

    The team does a great job showing diversity. Especially when it comes to hair. This is what made me the most excited. The different characters wear everything from afros to locks, to natural curls. I'm a Black woman with natural hair. It was exciting to see characters that looked like me and my friend group. And it will be empowering to the young people of color that pick up this novel. Representation matters, and these artists get everything just right. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 23, 2021

    I don't think this is the absolute best OGN DC has put out, but it's absolutely in the top tier. It creates a new hero who speaks to the very real challenges girls of color are fighting against, and makes for a perfect companion to the equally excellent Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed, which reinvented Diana's story as one of a modern-day refugee. While all these stories take place in their own world, many of them complement each other. This line has a good chance of being DC's most influential new line in the last few decades if it keeps this quality level. Read Full Review
