Super Mutant Magic Academy

Super Mutant Magic Academy is by Jillian Tamaki. An interesting graphic novel about a prep school for mutants, witches, and other kids with paranormal skills. These kids are also dealing with typical teen concerns: dating, prom, popularity, typical teen angst. It is not a story in the traditional sense; each set of strips contains it's own story. The humor is outrageous. Do not make the mistake of thinking this graphic novel is for kids though, because it definitely is not. Reluctant readers will find it engaging, as will readers in general.

Ratings: 11th grade - 9 out of 10 - P (profanity) - AC (mature thematic content).
