Herbert, are taking it all in for the first time at the one high school where power trumps popularity From rising star Daniel Kibblesmith The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Eisner Award winning artist Derek Charm Jughead , get ready for your first day of school inside a hilarious reimagining of Valiant s award winning superhero universe one where the next world ending cataclysm will have to wait until after prom night I never realised that this graphic novel was a prequel of some sorts to the Valiant superheroes I haven t even read or even heard of the superheroes, so I was going into this completely blind For those of you who have read the comic books of the Valiant superheroes, then I think you ll have a lot of fun seeing what the superheroes were like in high school And if like me, you haven t read the original comic books, then I think you will still find this graphic novel still accessible.I really enjoyed reading this graphic novel I loved its bright colours and I loved seeing teen superheroes You always see them as adults and taking on loads of responsibilities of saving the world blah blah blah, but it s so interesting to see them in high school and having to deal with all of the problems with high school.What made this graphic novel 3 stars for me was the diversity throughout, and I also liked how Kibblesmith conveyed a world of double standards There is a point in the graphic novel where our main character who is a female kisses her male crush without his consent If a male had done this to a female, there would have been an uproar However, the next day, the main character apologises to the boy and actually says that if she was a man, and he a girl it would have been considered assault After that, he accepts her apology I just thought that this was amazing This is what feminism is Feminists don t want women to rule the world , or to be better than men, we went to be equal, and this is being seen as equal It s not ok for men to sexualise women, but when women sexualise men, it s ok It s all about equality It s all about having the same rule being applied to all genders.Anyway, feminism rant over But hopefully, you see what I mean about Kibblesmith doing a brilliant job of conveying double standards within society.The only negative about this graphic novel was that some things moved a little bit too fast, and I would have loved to seeof the characters outside of school , but maybe we ll get to see that in future issues.I definitely think that there is room for these characters to improve and to have brilliant character development over future issues, and I think that when the next volumes come out, I will be reading them.Disclaimer this book was sent to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review The Valiant universe mashed up with Archie Valiant even brought one of the Jughead artists over in Derek Charm Unfortunately, this was just boring It had potential to be funny if they had tried to parody these types of books But they play it straight and it just feel like Valiant trying to jump on the DC Super Hero Girls bandwagon.Received an advance copy from Valiant and Edelweiss All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned. High school is tough, even for super heroes They deal with all the same problems high schoolers have while fighting evil Home coming takes on a whole new meaning when you and your date have super powers Excellent story with excellent art I had high hopes for this story, and it exceeded those pretty easily It s essentially a mash up of Valiant Universe and the gang from Riverdale In fact, Valiant High could easily fill in for anyone looking for modern Archie comics done in the classic, All American vein especially with how the CW show goes for a noirish murder mystery.Despite being set in an alternate universe where its characters are perpetually in high school, it still feels like a Valiant comic The setting is different, bu I had high hopes for this story, and it exceeded those pretty easily It s essentially a mash up of Valiant Universe and the gang from Riverdale In fact, Valiant High could easily fill in for anyone looking for modern Archie comics done in the classic, All American vein especially with how the CW show goes for a noirish murder mystery.Despite being set in an alternate universe where its characters are perpetually in high school, it still feels like a Valiant comic The setting is different, but even a casual Valiant reader would still find the characters recognizable and true There road towards icon status is long and daunting, but Valaint is doing right movies with its characters going in that direction
