Superb: Life After The Fallout
Superb: Life After The Fallout - David F... Superb: Life After The Fallout - David F. Walker I really wanted to like Superb: Life After The Fallout, but unfortunately it just never clicked with me. The majority of this can be put down to the fact that when it comes to these types of stories, it’s very hit or miss with me. I really loved the graphic novel I read previous to this – Generation Gone – so I was hopeful, but ultimately disappointed.

I liked the diversity represented in Superb: Life After The Fallout. The Down Syndrome representation is, to my knowledge, ground-breaking in superhero graphic novels. That, combined with Kayla being African American, and Abbie (who plays a lesser role) being a heavier-set Asian, definitely checks a good number of ‘representation needed’ boxes. On the actual representation of someone with Downs Syndrome, I can only assume- given the nod from the National Down Syndrome Society in the back of the book - that is accurate and/or believable. I have no relationships or interactions to draw experience from personally.

I had trouble getting into the first couple of issues in Superb: Life After The Fallout. It felt very run of the mill, and just wasn’t particularly the type of story that draws my interest. The third issue hooked me, though, and I was definitely paying more attention from then on out. The last issue in the volume threw me off because it involved none of the characters we knew. Instead it was devoted to the detailing the Event that changed everything. Including a revelation that – sorry -- wasn’t even close to being surprising.

There was supposed to be some ‘awkward steps of rekindling their friendship’ but there wasn’t, really. It amounted Kayla just assuming they were best friends again right away, Jonah saying no, they weren’t, not really – and then, presto, stressful events bond them together into a somewhat argumentative superhero team (trio if you count Abbie).

The art for Superb: Life After The Fallout was solid. It’s a realistic style complemented by rich colors when possible. The dialogue is kind of bland. I didn’t encounter anything particularly quote worthy. In terms of things that happen within the story, I did appreciate that Jonah was underestimated because of his having Down Syndrome. Like having an extra chromosome automatically means you can’t kick butt as a superhero.

I can’t say I was interested enough in Superb: Life After The Fallout to pick up any further issues, but I am very glad it exists. For children with Down Syndrome, having a superhero that has the same thing that they have must be a fantastic thing. I hope the series brings lots of joy to them.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for review consideration.

Finished it!
Fallout - Sara Paretsky

And it was vintage Vic. Standing up to the big guys, and fighting for those who can't fight for themselves. She's older, and dare I say it, she's actually a little bit wiser. OK so she still goes haring off when she gets a hint of a clue, but she's definitely getting less reckless with age. 

 

While I love the sense of place I get from Chicago, I really enjoyed the Kansas setting in this one, and the mentions of the Greenham Common peace camp in the UK in the 1980s. (I wasn't at the camp, but I knew people who were, and I went on various marches in support of them). I know some criticize Paretsky for letting her Liberal views bleed into her books, but I'm glad she does, and long may it continue.

 

PS. Finally, it's now 'Blackhawks' rather than 'Black Hawks'. AND her editors know how to spell 'Canadiens'.

Reading progress update: I've read 179 out of 448 pages.
Fallout - Sara Paretsky

So Vic's latest case has her leaving Chicago and heading for a small rural town in Kansas. And the locals don't like it when a gal from the big city starts poking her nose into their affairs...
