    Dear Super-Villains is a graphic novel written by Michael Northrop and illustrated by Gustavo Duarte. It is an anthology of nine short stories where children text notorious scoundrels and asking about life on the dark side. It is the sequel to Dear Justice League. Catwoman, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn, Gorilla Grodd, Giganta, Sinestro, Katana, and Black Manta correspond with their curious fans in multiple vignettes hanging on the premise of these villains answering fan mail.

It is an anthology of nine short stories where children text notorious scoundrels and asking about life on the dark side. It is the sequel to Dear Justice League. Catwoman, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn, Gorilla Grodd, Giganta, Sinestro, Katana, and Black Manta correspond with their curious fans in multiple vignettes hanging on the premise of these villains answering fan mail. Some are silly while others are a bit weightier. Dear Super-Villains is written and constructed rather well. The graphic novel is separated into nine interconnecting humorous vignettes with eight of them centering on one of the above villains mentioned. Duarte penciling was a tad cartoonish, but is apropos to the target audience and pleasant to the eyes. All in all, Dear Super-Villains is an interesting narrative about children curious about the dark side of the superhero world through various forms of correspondence and a great deal of humor.

    This book is perfect. Give it to kids. Adults can read it too. The art is beautiful. The stories are fun. I hope these two write a million more of these books. Thanks to DC and Net Galley for the ARC.

    Dear DC Super-Villains is a sequel to Dear Justice League. My 13 yr old and I thought it was great. We both really liked the illustrations and the funny quips throughout the whole book. According to my 10 yr old "Even though the art is pretty good, I think it wasn't that good." He thought there was only one funny joke and said that he was confused as to what was going on until the end of the book . So maybe it went over his head on this one and we are going to take his review with a grain of sal Dear DC Super-Villains is a sequel to Dear Justice League. My 13 yr old and I thought it was great.

    If you've read Dear Justice League, you'll have a rough idea of what to expect from this one. I went into this fully knowing it would all come together somehow and I was NOT disappointed. I enjoyed the diversity represented in the book plus how the Villians still inspired kids to do good. Overall, a solid title for kids with great comedic timing.

    I was really looking forward to this sequel to Dear Justice League. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite as charming and funny as I was hoping. Some of the character chapters were very cute but others were just kind of boring. Still I’m glad they included the Hall of Doom from the Super Friends show and the reason the Justice League found out about the upcoming jailbreak was silly.

    As a huge fan of the DC Universe, I am always excited for a new iteration of my beloved heroes and villains. This book does not disappoint! With character introductions (and puns galore) no lack of prior knowledge of these famous foes will keep readers from laughing at their antics.

    I literally laughed out loud at this charming, clever book! I think I enjoyed it even more than Dear Justice League! I love how Northrop keeps all of the characters' voices within a YA rating.

    Graphic Novel Readers enjoy letters to the Super-Villains in this volume by Northrup and Duarte. The text and illustrations blend well to show that these characters are not one dimensional and have their own concerns too. Middle grade readers will appreciate the humor and artwork.

    A companion volume to Dear Justice League. I just didn't love this one as much, though. It's partly because the choice of villains is a little odd. Catwoman, Luthor, and Harley Quinn are obvious choices. Sinestro and Gorilla Grodd are much less so. Giganta is at least self-explanatory, and Black Manta was in the Aquaman movie, so at least some kids will recognize him. Katana was the real puzzler, though, since I don't know her as a villain at all. Character choice aside, the stories just didn't A companion volume to Dear Justice League.

I'm not sure why these villains are taking the time to answer questions from kids, most of whom don't seem to like them at all, and they generally don't have much to say. Dear Justice League worked because it was believable that the heroes wanted to help those kids, and because the stories meant something.

    Dear DC Super-Villains features many of the popular DC Comics villains along with some lesser-known characters. Children will enjoy reading stories about Catwoman, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn, Gorilla Grodd, Giganta, Sinestro, Katana, and Black Manta. Each chapter contains a short story along with answering a question emailed to them by a child. The result is often hilarious and at times actually quite heart-warming.

Children will enjoy reading stories about Catwoman, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn, Gorilla Grodd, Giganta, Sinestro, Katana, and Black Manta. Each chapter contains a short story along with answering a question emailed to them by a child. The result is often hilarious and at times actually quite heart-warming. The author, Michael Northrop, knowns his audience well. Northrop does not talk above the children he is writing for, nor does he talk down to them. He knows that kids like silly but can also appreciate serious moments, too. The writing is snappy and has appropriate references to vernacular and things kids currently enjoy. This graphic novel is for kids ages 8-12, though I do think kids a little younger with help from a caregiver or teacher would enjoy it as well. There may be some concern about the subject matter as far as if kids should be getting advice from villains, but the book itself is very sweet and positive. These characters have some good life lessens even if they are a little rough around the edges. Dear DC Super-Villains is a book that kids would definitely enjoy. There are silly and fun moments, but with some insight from characters for kids who are dealing with things as well. There’s something for every kid to enjoy. I think it is also a good book for kids who maybe don’t like reading so much to check out too. There isn’t a lot of words, but the writing is funny and smart. Overall, it is a very enjoyable read and I’m hoping this is not the end of this particular series! My full review can be found here: https://thegeekiary.com/advice-for-ki...

    Such a unique idea of storytelling for this graphic novel and utterly enjoyable! Each chapter features a different super-villain who answers a piece of inquisitive fan mail that furthers the overall story. It's good to be a little bad but overall there is still a heroic message and it was quite enjoyable, funny, and filled to the brim with puns.

    I wish I loved this as much as I loved Dear Justice League, but I couldn't. Unlike Dear Justice League, there weren't really any lessons or morals. It was just 'fun' gags about each character. The Catwoman one was good, and I liked the Harley Quinn one, but other than a funny panel or two each chapter there wasn't enough to keep me invested.

    Dear Spuer-Villians is somehow the continuation of Dear Justice League the concept is very similar but applied to the enemies of the characters in the previous book, many children write letters to the villains but this time they are not exactly kind. .. Each story has its own charm, but I must admit that my favorites were Luthor's one where he has a problem with his minoxidil... And the one about Black Mantha, where his biggest fan manages to get information from him about the next att Dear Spuer-Villians is somehow the continuation of Dear Justice League the concept is very similar but applied to the enemies of the characters in the previous book, many children write letters to the villains but this time they are not exactly kind. .. Each story has its own charm, but I must admit that my favorites were Luthor's one where he has a problem with his minoxidil... And the one about Black Mantha, where his biggest fan manages to get information from him about the next attack of the league of supervillains by appealing to his ego, these two stories made me laugh a lot! Without a doubt, Michael Northrop knows how to do his job, he knows how to write in an exceptional way for the generation for which this product is made and if the wonderful art of Gustavo Duarte is added to that, a dream team is created and that I hope to see those two again in a third installment!

    Oh, I think I get it now. This is a book for kids. The puerile humor spoiled any enjoyment for me. There are no big revelations, nothing new added to the characters, no relation between the stories, no sexy artwork, more than one none-too-famous characters, a fully-cartoon battle with superheroes at the end. Skippable. Dear Catwoman, how does Batman always kick you around? Dear Lex Luthor, why haven't you cured baldness? Spoiler: he has, but is keeping it for himself or something.
