Spaced Out is a great addition to th DC Superhero Girls books. I'm so glad other female heroes are getting some of the spotlight. I will be recommending this title for my library to purchase.

Read this with an expert on Superhero Girls, my daughter! She enjoyed the comic and the pets that made appearances early on. Being a fan of the cartoon style of story (and not knowing the original), she didn't mind any of the revisionist style if the comic. I thought that the comic (like the show which spawned it) is a bit ridiculous and a bit odd, but certainly does a good job bringing in new readers who may be the next generation of comic book enthusiasts. She provided the rating.
Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to preview this book.

Jessica has to go to OA to get trained and so Big Barda, Supergirl, Star Sapphire (and a stowaway) go with her to help her get there. Well, technically Star Sapphire wants to see her boyfriend Hal. Of course, it's not that easy.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman is tasked with taking care of Krytpo, but then it seems like she delegates it to Flash, who then sorta gets Hawkgirl's help as well as others when suddenly Krypto goes on his own adventure (a really, really cute one).

The main human story was fine, but, what I really liked was Krypto's story. All of it, where it touched Supergirl's story and where it didn't. It was all perfect (and super cute).

This is one of my favorite Super Hero Girls at Super Hero High graphic novels yet. Pretty fun.

I received this book via Netgalley thanks to DC Entertainment.

I've enjoyed all the previous DC Super Hero Girls titles, so I was expecting to like this one as well, but I was not expecting to like it as much as I did. I loved that Spaced Out follows a lesser-known hero and puts her at the forefront and lets her shine just as much as previous titles did for more well-known heroes.

I've been a fan of this series since the early days and was pleased get to get an advanced copy from Net Galley.  As always, the series looks great.  This volume in particular was colorful and visually interesting. The author knows this world and has a good handle on her versions of these characters.  It's always nice to see this world expand, but this one was pushing it a little.  
New Green Lantern Jessica Cruz is on her way to Oa with Star Sapphire and Supergirl along for the ride. On the way Supergirl gets caught up in a plot involving Kryptonian survivors and the dreaded Phantom Zone.  Meanwhile on Earth, Flash and Krypto get into some shenanigans. 
I enjoyed the story, as I usually do with this series.  However, it's hard to really buy these versions of the characters going into space, let alone the Phantom Zone.  I applaud the author for taking steps to keep things fresh, but I feel like maybe it's gotten a little too far from the initial premise this time around.  This type is story is better served in a more grounded setting.  I prefer it when this series sticks to what it does best, exploring the relationships and adventures happening in and around Super Hero High.  Still fun, just not quite right.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was fun, charming and kick ass. I loved the positive female characters and themes.  Perfect starter book for kids who like superheroes.

Fontana can really do no wrong with this series.  This latest installment is just as bright, funny, and adventure-packed as the others.  Keep it up!

This volume adds many new characters like a female green lantern, and a prissy princess Star Sapphire. The story revolves around Green Lantern. She has been called to OA for her induction, but she is far from believing in herself or her abilities. This book is typical of the series. Silly and over the top but with a good message.

DC Super Hero Girls: Spaced Out is very similar to the previous DC Super Hero Girls graphic novels.  What I like about Spaced Out is that we are introduced to new characters.  This is a good addition to a collection where the other DC Super Hero Girls graphic novels are popular.

The DC SuperHero Girls books are written for ages 7-11, so the stories are appropriately cute while also showcasing a hidden moral. The moral of this book is to trust your friends, your instincts, and also your pets! SuperHero High has finally allowed animals, so basically everyone has a pet sidekick now. Ace the Batdog is not in this nearly enough - he is adorable (just a little personal note). The new Green Lantern, Jessica, is intimidated at the thought of going off-world to the Green Lantern headquarters, and is basically afraid of anything to do with flying, space, etc. The other heroes try to help her overcome her fear and gain confidence while also figuring out what is going on with Supergirl's new friends.
