Superheroes are the stuff of kids’ fantasies. Who among us hasn’t fantasized about having powers, putting on a costume and fighting crime? Ben Sears‘ graphic novel, Young Shadow, is a presentation of this fantasy: a costumed kid with no superpowers but excellent fighting skills and a neighborhood network that helps him patrol the streets — because the cops can’t be trusted to do so. Tim is joined by Ryan Cecil Smith to review this fun, but potentially controversial all-ages book.
