    The third volume and this time it is summer vacation for our heroes! Of course there are also villains to defeat so this volume was full of fun and fighting.

Plus those of us who long for summer vacation (but are adults) will love this book as well as it reminds us of the thrill of making plans for the vacation, asking our friends what their plans are. Before I start with the story and what I thought of it, I want to address Siracca. I am a bit confused about it. I never heard of the character before, but I found the whole Syrian refugee story a bit too convenient given it is such a hot topic. Sadly, I can't really find a lot of information about Siracca, plus the sites are a bit conflicting if they have information (some say she was born in Palestine, others say Syria). But I just can't get over the feeling that the whole refugee thing is just added as a hot topic thing. If it is not, please let me know, I just want to know more about Siracca, she is such an awesome character. Most of the story's focus is on Wonder Woman (sorry, I am not going to call her Wondy, that is just too silly), but we also see other groups of super heroes. Which in the end all connect together! Wonder Woman is going to Olympus to meet with her dad and see her siblings, she is taking Bumblebee with her (she wanted to take other people, but sadly everyone else had plans). I did feel sorry for Wonder Woman, it was quite hard for her to decide to go to her dad. On the one hand she wants more time with him, find out about her heritage, but on the other side she isn't really sure about it all. I loved seeing her siblings, see how they looked, acted, and what they did. Plus it was great fun seeing Olympus. Of course our superheroes never rest as there is a subplot next to the Wonder Woman goes to Olympus story. Lots of mystery, excitement, and of course battles! The battles were well written and I enjoyed them. It was fun to see everyone's powers, and see Wonder Woman grow even further as a character. The art is still great, though I still can't get over the eyes of the characters. They just look a bit weird, and at times I just was laughing because of how they looked (and at some moments it just wasn't the right scene for laughing). But I definitely enjoyed this volume and I can't wait for the next volumes! Review first posted at https://twirlingbookprincess.com/

It was a cute graphic novel and would be great for kids, I just think theis storyline was a little more ridiculous than the others, and I could not enjoy it as much as the others in the series. The artwork is good, the power of friendship and love is still the main theme and the superheroes still kick the butts of the bad guys.

    I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This volume is just as its predecessors: a lot of fun, hilarious and full of badass female characters. I especially love the the cutesy art style takes nothing away from the characters' badassness. This volume has another really fun storyline and I'd definitely recommend it if you like superheroines and if the cute artstyle intrigues you.

    Awww... Summer Olympus is an adorable comics for kids featuring mostly the women of the DC universe as teenagers. Everyone is on summer vacation when a terrible plot is hatched by Strife and Aries. Meanwhile, poor Wonder Woman has some pretty big decisions to consider! I love these books for the bright art and accessible superhero storylines. They remind me of My Little Pony for the crowd who likes a bit more punching :) Awww...

    Another enjoyable addition! Zeus tells Dad Jokes (???) and the power of friendship and sisterhood defeats the god of war! I also loved that so many of Diana's half-siblings were biracial, including Siracca (demigod of wind) who was a Syria refugee. That was a nice touch, especially for a book aimed at kids. And remember: friends don't let friends become supervillains. Another enjoyable addition! Zeus tells Dad Jokes (???) and the power of friendship and sisterhood defeats the god of war!

    My daughters and I found DC Super Hero Girls: Summer Olympus very amusing, due to the likes of Zeus and the Gods and, of course, the super hero girls.

So, the premise is that the Super Hero Girls have cleaned up Metropolis of criminals and are now ready for their Summer vacation. Wonder Woman has been invited, by her father Zeus, to spend her holidays on Olympus with her brothers and sisters (the rest of the pantheon of gods). Wonder Woman is not sure she wants to spend time with a family she doesn't have a real connection with, but wants to learn more about them; so she agrees to go, when Bumblebee says that she will tag along. But, of course, it wouldn't be Super Hero Girls if there wasn't a villain to defeat, so Shea Fontana weaves together a story that interrupts all the super heroes holidays (Batgirl, Katana and Beast Boy are travelling around Europe on museum tours; Supergirl, Big Barta and Lady Shiva are enjoying life on the Kent farm; Poison Ivy is looking after her garden; and Harley is at an acting retreat) in order to combat a most powerful villain. (view spoiler)[Ares, God of War, and Stryfe, Goddess of Chaos, (also Wonder Woman's half-siblings) declare war on Metropolis; only after Stryfe has travelled Europe stealing precious artefacts, which could defeat Ares, from various museums. However, even though the artefacts have been hidden away, Wonder Woman finds (with the help of her friends and family) that there is one way that she can stop Ares. (hide spoiler)] With the underlying message that, no matter where you are in the world, true friends stand by you through tough times, as well as the good, Summer Olympus proved to be a fabulous story with some memorable scenes. This is a graphic novel that super hero fans of all ages should enjoy. Looking forward to the next DC Super Hero Girls graphic novel: Past Times at Super Hero High .

    This book is the third in the Superhero Girls series. Since the book continues to add new characters, the guides in the front are really helpful for remembering who is in the comics and their roles. This volume focuses more on Wonder Woman, which I assume is meant to capitalize on the Wonder Woman movie. I was big into Greek mythology when I was younger, so I love seeing all these figures again.

I had never heard of Siracca before and I thought she was a really interesting character. I hope she makes more appearances in future issues. I thought it was so fun to see what all of the various girls are up to for the summer. Supergirl is working on the farm, Harley Quinn is at a drama camp, all the girls are off on their own adventures and Wonder Woman is at Olympus with her dad. She faces some difficult decisions but her friends help her out in the end. All’s well that ends well. This book is another short and fun read that any kid interested in superheroes will enjoy. Not perfect, but cute. Thanks to DC Comics for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review. Originally posted on The Reading Raindoe

There is a huge bit that involves the Greek Gods and thanks to Rick Riordan she was very familiar with them and their background but if your child isn’t they may need a crash course to keep everything straight and really get all the context. You could easily see a spin off here. Yeah! More toys for me to buy lol The graphics and color pallet worked well with this age level story and really helped the plot and characters come to life more. Overall it’s just a fun story.

    A fun story in which Wonder Woman is invited to spend the summer with his dad. Lots of fun adventures and hilarity takes place on this Vol 3. The writing is funny and the characters are well done. The art is absolutely sweet. I would absolutely recommend this for children and adults who want something quite light. A fun, sweet, nice reading for all ages. Disclaimer: I got a copy from netgalley for my honest review

    Just to be clear, I read the FCBD version, so it may be quite different from the full version. I personally didn't care for it as there was far too much sexism (shopping is mentioned on page 3) and the whole thing lacks sustenance. I just don't care for works that claim to empower girls while simultaneously belittling them. But maybe that's just my old, grouchy opinion. :) Just to be clear, I read the FCBD version, so it may be quite different from the full version.

    Thanks to DC for early access to this title from NetGalley! The school year at Super Hero High is wrapping up, and Wonder Woman is invited to Olympus to spend the summer with her father, Zeus. Zeus offers her the opportunity to become full-goddess, but his renegade children are wreaking havoc on Metropolis. Not great, but a solid middle-grade offering.

    I like this book because they have a whole lot of business to do, actually, yeah a whole lot of business to do and the message-one who took them there, he said "A message? A message? I'm eager to deliver this message," but it was just to get there, so they would stop the meany misfits because they are the people who are destroying their world.

    Great graphic novel - especially for young girls! I especially liked how they spun Diana (Wonder Woman) and her parents just like a kid with divorced parents would - Diana went to spend the summer with Zeus - her dad- on Mount Olympus. This is a great series, loved reading it with my daughter.

    I'm always a sucker for mixed-race stories, so I love that Wonder Woman got to embrace herself here. The touch on refugees (especially Syrian) was a great nod to more serious issues, even though most of the drama happened in Metropolis.

    Really fun, a little simple, but good for (young) fans of DC Super Hero Girls. I'm a big fan of the DCSHG art, so, of course, I love the art for this. My only "complaint" is that it is not really intresting for people above the target audiance, which is more of a bonus than a requirement.

    It's a fun little tale that has a nice moral at its center. I still can't figure out why they don't use Catwoman more. It's a fun little tale that has a nice moral at its center. I still can't figure out why they don't use Catwoman more.

    i think this book shows girls that we can do what comes to mind. Example is wonder woman and were she comes from a place were there is only woman and no men. But they still depend on each other and not the men. this shows that girl can do what ever they want when ever they want.

I haven't read the first two but this story is a standalone making it unnecessary. I enjoyed quite a bit though so will back read the first two books. It's an easy read and probably most suitable for the 11 and under crowd. The story is full of action and brings learning moments to the foreground especially about being happy with who you are and not being defined by who your family is.
