Teenage Kicks: Preview Black Canary Ignite And Trailer

by Olly MacNamee

Here’s a thing. Not only have DC Comics released a preview of the new YA graphic novel Black Canary: Ignite by Meg Cabot and Cara McGee, but they realised a trailer with an all-new specially penned music track too. Talk about going the extra mile. A pity it doesn’t reveal who the band are behind this high-energy pop punk tune. It’s rather catchy.

Thirteen-year-old Dinah Lance knows exactly what she wants, who she is, and where she’s going. She plans on winning the battle of the bands with her two best friends, then she’ll join the junior police academy to solve crimes just like her dad. When a mysterious figure keeps getting in the way of Dinah’s goals and threatens her friends and family, she’ll learn more about herself and her mother’s secret past, and about navigating the various power chords of life. This magnetic story features expressive and energetic art by Cara McGee to match the trademark attitude and spunk of Meg Cabot’s characters and dialogue.
