Teen Titans Spotlight: Wonder Girl

Title: Teen Titans Spotlight: Wonder Girl
Author: J. Torres
Genre: Graphic Novel
Page Count: 144
Why I read it: graphic novel challenge
Grade: C

Like every other teenager, Cassie Sandsmark has more monstrous problems than she can handle alone. Only no one else pulls duty as Wonder Girl -- or follows in the footsteps of an Amazonian princess. But with a rift growing between her and Wonder Woman, Cassie's striking out on her own....

My review:
I haven't read a whole lot of DC comics.  My tastes seem to run more towards Marvel for some reason.  To be honest, I think it's because a lot of the DC comics have the newspaper feeling paper instead of the glossy paper, and it just bothers my fingers.  Silly, right?  Wonder Girl had the glossy paper, so me and my fingers were okay this time.

I also haven't read any Teen Titans, so this was all new territory for me.  It was okay, but not good enough for me to go out searching for more.  The writing wasn't great.  The artwork was good, except for the Wonder Girl character kept doing really funny things with her mouth.  I understand that graphic novels have a certain style that's not always realistic (hello big boobs and tiny waists), but this was just distracting for me.

I don't think I'd recommend this one.
