My review of Mera: Tidebreaker is now posted at Good Comics for Kids. Short version: I liked it. As the first DC Ink release, launching their line of young adult graphic novels, it’s a good showing (and a lot better than Super Sons: The PolarShield Project, the first DC Zoom title for middle grade readers).
Although the story structure is familiar — either to fans of star-crossed, fighting family romances or the comic book characters — the telling is entertaining, and I liked the emphasis on Mera as a warrior instead of a princess. It’s written by Danielle Paige and illustrated by Stephen Byrne. The trailer for the book is posted below the cover. (The voice sounds a little too young girly for me, but it’s fast-moving.)
