Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal for you today. Nubia Real One is a new graphic novel by L.L. McKinney. The artwork and cover by Robyn Smith and are gorgeous. I'm really looking forward to reading more about Nubia and her Wonder Woman story.
Synopsis of Nubia Real One from Goodreads:
Can you be a hero...if society doesn’t see you as a person? Nubia has always been a little bit...different. As a baby she showcased Amazonian-like strength by pushing over a tree to rescue her neighbor’s cat. But, despite having similar abilities, the world has no problem telling her that she’s no Wonder Woman. And even if she was, they wouldn’t want her. Every time she comes to the rescue, she’s reminded of how people see her; as a threat. Her Moms do their best to keep her safe, but Nubia can’t deny the fire within her, even if she’s a little awkward about it sometimes. Even if it means people assume the worst.
When Nubia’s best friend, Quisha, is threatened by a boy who thinks he owns the town, Nubia will risk it all—her safety, her home, and her crush on that cute kid in English class—to become the hero society tells her she isn’t.
From the witty and powerful voice behind A Blade So Black, L.L. McKinney, and with endearing and expressive art by Robyn Smith, comes a vital story for today about equality, identity and kicking it with your squad.
I can't wait to get my hands on this one! Published by DC Comics, Nubia Real One is set to release February 2, 2021 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this graphic novel? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
