This time, we’re checking out some particularly perfect panels from <em><a href="/graphic-novels/batman-nightwalker-0">Batman: Nightwalker,</a> <a href="/graphic-novels/wonder-woman-warbringer">Wonder Woman: Warbringer</a> </em>and<em> <a href="/graphic-novels/shadow-of-the-batgirl">Shadow of the Batgirl.</a></em></p> <h2><br /><strong>Batman: Nightwalker</strong></h2> <p align="center"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/03-MAR/PPNightwalker_1_5e7ab060881c40.36894736.jpg" style="width: 628px; height: 991px;" /><br /><em>Page 28</em></p> <p>The Bruce Wayne in <em>Batman: Nightwalker</em> is not yet the cocky, assured adult version of the character, and yet, the signs are all pointing in that direction. During this car chase, which takes place very early on in the story. Bruce <em>thinks</em> he knows what to do, but isn't 100% positive. He's going to do it anyway, however, because it's the necessary thing to do. (Is it the <em>right</em> thing? Eh…but that's often the question with Bruce, isn't it?)<br />  </p> <p align="center"><em><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/03-MAR/PPNightwalker_2_5e7ab07e336b79.38065928.jpg" style="width: 632px; height: 994px;" /><br /> Page 189</em></p> <p>Bruce deals with a lot of loss in his life, and much like the young Bruce in this book hasn't yet realized his particular brand of heroism(/vigilantism), he also hasn't figured out how to protect his heart. His relationship with Madeleine is somewhat doomed from the start, but he still has hope that the two of them can work things out. It's also a great example of the struggle between right and wrong Bruce feels throughout his life and what that difference looks like to different people on opposite sides of situations.</p> <p><em>To learn more about Batman: Nightwalker, read <a href="http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2019/11/21/book-breakdown-batman-nightwalker-explores-bruce-before-the-bat" target="_blank">Tim Beedle's Book Breakdown</a></em><a href="http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2019/11/21/book-breakdown-batman-nightwalker-explores-bruce-before-the-bat" target="_blank"><em>.</em></a><br /><br />  </p> <h2>Wonder Woman: Warbringer</h2> <p align="center"><em><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/03-MAR/PPWarbringer_1_5e7ab096b40a88.07032665.jpg" style="width: 788px; height: 742px;" /><br /> From page 19</em></p> <p>Diana's a hero down to the marrow of her bones, and it's evident in these panels, in which she literally dives into the deep end to rescue people she's never met—even though the rescue is going to cause trouble for her in the long run.<br />  </p> <p align="center"><em><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/03-MAR/PPWarbringer_2a_5e7ab14dd10df4.40606431.jpg" style="width: 420px; height: 389px;" /><br /> From page 78</em></p> <p>It's just so accurate!<br />  </p> <p align="center"><em><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/03-MAR/PPWarbringer_3_5e7ab19727faa4.20058668.jpg" style="width: 717px; height: 1055px;" /><br /> Page 188</em></p> <p>The friendship between Diana, Alia and Nim was one of my favorite parts of <em>Wonder Woman: Warbringer</em>, and this page shows how far they've come in such a short period of time. It drives home the importance of female friendships specifically, and how each person can be different and yet fit together so well. It's a heartwarming moment that's also an important scene for young women to see in comics!</p> <p><em>To learn more about Wonder Woman: Warbringer, read </em><a href="http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2020/01/10/book-breakdown-wonder-woman-warbringer-is-inspiring-and-intense" target="_blank"><em>Amanda Levine's Book Breakdown</em></a><a href="http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2020/01/10/book-breakdown-wonder-woman-warbringer-is-inspiring-and-intense" target="_blank"><em>.</em></a></p> <h2><br /> Shadow of the Batgirl</h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><em><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/03-MAR/PPShadowBatgirl_1_5e7ab1b043a7d1.32094576.jpg" style="width: 717px; height: 1080px;" /><br /> Page 17</em></p> <p>I adore Jackie so much, and I knew she was going to be the perfect person for Cass to rely on from the second she showed up in her fabulous checkered pants, socks with sandals and killer hairstyle.<br />  </p> <p align="center"><em><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/03-MAR/PPShadowBatgirl_2_5e7ab1c6d9cdb5.07748218.jpg" style="width: 719px; height: 1080px;" /><br /> Page 112</em></p> <p>This panel comes hot on the heels of a set of pages that kind of blew my mind, but I'm not going to cheat and include them here when I've already talked about how much I love them in my <a href="http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2020/02/13/book-breakdown-shadow-of-the-batgirl-makes-us-happy-and-hungry" target="_blank"><em>Shadow of the Batgirl</em> Book Breakdown.</a> Regardless, this panel is pretty perfect in its own right—it's messy and busy and Cass looks kind of ridiculous in her cobbled-together outfit. But the look of determination on her face is so moving, and her thoughts on how she's ready to be a hero—although they're a little jumbled, too—are so powerful and they resonate throughout the rest of the book. This is a moment of change, a moment of massive shift for Cass, and you can almost feel her resolve coming off the page.</p> <p><em>To learn more about Shadow of the Batgirl, read <a href="http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2020/02/13/book-breakdown-shadow-of-the-batgirl-makes-us-happy-and-hungry" target="_blank">my Book Breakdown.</a></em><br />  </p> <p>Do you have a favorite panel or spread from these books?

(It’s actually öčÓăÖ±˛Ąâ€™s second YA graphic novel adaptation after October’s <em><a href="/blog/2019/11/21/book-breakdown-batman-nightwalker-explores-bruce-before-the-bat" target="_blank">Batman: Nightwalker.</a></em>) <em>Wonder Woman: Warbringer </em>is all about the power of friendship, helping others and doing the right thing.</p> <p>This graphic novel does an excellent job of following two young women who are simply trying to make the right choices—deciding between what is easy and what is right. The result is a story packed with adventure and surprise twists, but that also promotes honorable morals and ideals, making the characters sympathetic and very human.</p> <p>Let’s break it down to discover more about this great story!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/01-JAN/WWWarbringer_cov_5e17d6372958a8.44370058.jpg" style="width: 718px; height: 1080px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Cover Crackdown:</strong></h2> <p>Well, right off the bat you can clearly see who this story is about! The famed Wonder Woman, aka Diana Prince, and a new character who seems just as strong and powerful as Diana. You also see that the story takes place in two epic places, New York City and the majestic island of Themyscira. The cover does a great job of showing two young women in two completely different parts of the world, yet somehow on the same path towards their destinies, their futures intertwined.<br />  </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/01-JAN/WWWarbringer_1_5e17d662e22063.05203393.jpg" style="width: 719px; height: 1080px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Tell Me a Story:</strong></h2> <p>Every comic fan knows Wonder Woman’s origin story about how she was created and her youth on the magical island of Themyscira. However, <em>Wonder Woman: Warbringer </em>offers a new twist on that tale—one no one’s seen before! Young Diana wants to prove herself to her fellow Amazonians, especially her mother, so she enters a race with a plan to finish first. Only, in the midst of the race, she meets a young woman shipwrecked off the coast of the island who changes Diana’s life and fate forever. The girl’s name is Alia Keralis, and Diana yearns to help her, but doing so potentially means being banned from Themyscira forever.</p> <p>We learn that Alia is actually a Warbringer—someone whose very DNA brings about devastating wars and chaos amongst man. Desperate to change her destiny after learning about who she is, Alia and Diana go on an adventure with Alia’s brother and a few of her pals to reverse her fate. How? By going to Greece and finding a magical spring that can end the Warbringer line in her DNA forever. Twists and turns abound along the way, with some mythology and magic thrown in for good measure. In short, you’re in for a thrilling ride!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/01-JAN/WWWarbringer_2_5e17d6c157bce8.47550046.jpg" style="width: 718px; height: 1079px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Let’s Talk Art:</strong></h2> <p>The art in this graphic novel is just as excellent as the story and adaptation itself. What is so interesting about Seaton’s art is that some panels are so simple and streamlined, while others can be so detailed and so in-depth that it is hard to imagine it came from the same artist. Seaton also draws all of her characters, especially Diana and Alia, with very expressive eyes, something that so important to show the emotions and nuances of the story.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/01-JAN/WWWarbringer_7_5e17d769a04056.83204483.jpg" style="width: 715px; height: 1078px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Dialog Discussion:</strong></h2> <p>The dialogue of the book flows well. You really get a sense of the relationship that is building between Diana and Alia, as well as the relationships already formed between Alia and her New York friends and family. Each character has their own clear personality. Alia and Diana are both equally strong-headed and confident. Alia’s best friend Nim is confident as well, but she falls more on the louder side of displaying it, while her other friend Theo is more of an awkward, comedic type. In short, there is a character likely to resonate with every type of reader and they’re each given the juicy dialog to match!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/01-JAN/WWWarbringer_food_5e17da5e473497.46969099.jpg" style="width: 396px; height: 494px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Perfect Food Pairing:</strong></h2> <p>Well, this graphic novel is just perfect for a wide variety of foods. New York and Greece are the two of the main locations in this book, so I’ll give you a choice. You could easily pair this delectable graphic novel with some classic New York City favorites like hot dogs, soft pretzels and pizza. Or alternatively, if you want to go a healthier route, you could try some Greek and Mediterranean style foods. I, myself, could go for some delicious tzatziki sauce-smothered chicken or beef with a side of quinoa and kalamata olives.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/01-JAN/WWWarbringer_5_5e17d7c88b35f6.67698215.jpg" style="width: 781px; height: 739px;" /></p> <h2><strong>What Would You Most Like to Ask?</strong></h2> <p>What I wouldn’t give to actually be able to have a conversation with Wonder Woman herself! I would love to ask her many things, however relating to this story, I would like to ask her if she felt it was all worth it to leave her island of Themyscira and her beloved sisters, the Amazons, with the risk of being banished forever, all for the sake of a stranger she had never met before. However, I know without a doubt her answer would absolutely and undeniably be yes. She is one of the world’s greatest heroes after all.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/01-JAN/WWWarbringer_4_5e17d7e40fdf22.99475367.jpg" style="width: 777px; height: 468px;" /></p> <h2><strong>The Final Word:</strong></h2> <p>I truly believe that there is something in this graphic novel for everyone. From the empowering story to the enjoyable art to the action-packed moments of adventure, the keys to a great comic are all there. Plus, with the magic and mythology and above all, the themes of friendship, determination and doing what is right even if it is hard, everyone can find moments that are likely to resonate strongly with them.
