REVIEW: Raising Dion # 1 by Dennis Liu (Writer) & Jason Piperberg (Illustrator)

****(4) out of 5 stars

This was a good opening comic with pleasing graphics. However, there was so much time devoted to the backstory that, other than the promo material, you don't even know what the story is actually supposed to be about! I hope that there are future editions though, and that this situation is remedied in them. It seems like a great premise:  Nicole, a young black woman, as a single parent, trying to raise her 7-year-old son, Dion, who has superpowers.  It would be good to see more of what Raising Dion is really all about.


I don't recall where I first heard of this book, but I received a FREE ebook copy - and you can as well! (at least as of the time of this posting) - at: www.dennis-liu.com.
