Middle-Grade Graphic Novel Awesomeness (I)


Lunella Lafayette is an Inhuman preteen genius who wants to save the world. Oh, and she ALSO has a time-travelled dinosaur for a sidekick.

Seriously. What’s not to love?

Lunella is a great character, managing to negotiate school-life (sucks) parents (over-protective) while dealing with the appearance of a titanic T-Rex and a bunch of stone-age losers (The Killer-Folk) on her terrain (NYC).

A book  all comic-loving kids 8+ and their grown-ups will adore.

Natacha Bustos the Barcelona-based artist is also that rare thing, a woman of colour creator working for Marvel.

Best line?

I’m not a wizard…I’m a scientist!
