    In this publication, Batgirl is a crime fighter who also lives with a roommate in Burnside, a hip, Williamsburg-inspired neighborhood. It’s about Jane, who after barely surviving a terror attack in Metro City, must readjust to a “safer” life in suburbia. But before you go thinking Dolltopia might be too much of an intense genderqueer narrative for a child, it’s just subversive enough. Boomerang’s heist – no emotional impact to the betrayal, and he comes across as helpless. The highs and lows of becoming a teenager.

K.: Mulholland (2007) musters evidence that “the graphic novel - loosely defined as a novel whose content is displayed in both images and text - has, in the past two years, begun to break into the British mainstream.” In Japan, manga and other forms of graphic literary materials have long been an integral part of the national reading culture, for adults as well as their children, a heritage of remarkable breadth and diversity since the end of WW II (Gravett, 2004).
