Emperor of the Airwaves

The PENGUIN purchases GOTHAM'S largest media company. Meanwhile, a crime wave hits the city. BATMAN soon learns that these events are related. After the DARK KNIGHT stops a crime, the PENGUIN'S TV news channel edits the security tapes and police reports to make BATMAN look like a criminal. People begin to fear the DARK KNIGHT. If he can't prove his innocence, the hero will end up in prison, and the PENGUIN will fly free.

School Library Journal - Travis Jonker

"At first glance, these titles appear to be small, hardcover comics. They are, in fact, colorful, action-packed chapter books with loads of appeal. All are original, modern works, but firmly based on the comics that inspired them. The brevity of each volume results in a quick-moving plot with a minimum of development. The writing is generally clear and doesn’t come across as dumbed down. Although background information about the characters is provided, it is assumed that readers are already fairly familiar with these well-known superheroes. Each title includes discussion questions and writing prompts, upping the classroom-connection opportunities. The bold, vibrant illustrations have a crisp, retro style that pairs nicely with the adventures. Sound effects are displayed in expressive fonts that stand out from the rest of the text. Light, brisk pleasure reading that students, particularly reluctant readers, will be clamoring for. -Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, MI" - School Library Journal

Library Media Connection - Nick Petrosino

"STAR REVIEW: These high-interest, low-level books will entice struggling readers, reluctant readers, and accomplished readers alike. The Man of Steel and Batman are back with exciting, colorful full-page illustrations in chapter book style. Last son of Krypton sets the background for Superman’s epic adventures, with a plot true to the original Superman storyline. The Museum Monsters introduces readers to the adult reporter Clark Kent and his coworker, Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen. Batman continues his quest to rid Gotham City of crime. Emperor of the Airwaves involves a clever scheme by the Penguin and The Revenge of Clayface features Clayface and the Joker. “From the Desk of Clark Kent” highlights the end of each Superman book, and a confidential police file on the main criminal appears in the Batman titles. Added features include discussion questions and writing prompts. This set will be a must-have as it clearly features the “wow” factor of brightly colored illustrations to go along with the exciting plots and well-known characters. Glossary. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
