    Mark Waid certainly doesn't shy away from controversy as he launches a new shared universe. Six teenagers gain superpowers triggered by their fear during a school shooting. The story revolves around the high school dealing with aftermath of the shooting as school starts up again. Tensions are high as there's talk of arming teachers and armed parents are marching on school grounds. There are a LOT of trigger warnings (That is not meant to be a joke.) as Waid takes on this troubled issue that Mark Waid certainly doesn't shy away from controversy as he launches a new shared universe.

    Take six kids who survived a school shooting. Give them superpowers. What do you think would happen? They are high schoolers! They manage to screw things up because they have no plan, they just react. This time. But maybe not so the next time. Because they can learn. And pressure is a great teacher. Maybe the next volume will provide a bit more about the "grief counselor" and what part she has in the Phoenix Academy conspiracy.

    This is pretty much just a take on the X-Men, really. A bunch of teenagers who survive an Arizona school shooting suddenly find themselves with superpowers and trying to stop everyone they know from being reactionary asshats and taking things WAY too far in an effort to "keep them safe." It's pretty political - it kind of hits you over the head with "guns are bad, guns in schools are even worse" and puts pretty much every adult in a REALLY terrible light, so it's pretty heavy-handed on the This is pretty much just a take on the X-Men, really.

Maybe other issues will do more to flesh out the characters? So far they are pretty bland.

    Language: R (50 swears, 19 “f,” 1 “c”); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG13 (school shooting and action sequences) The first day of school is never great, but this first day of school is making the news because it’s also the first day of its reopening after a school shooting in May. Anouk just wants it to be a normal day to prove that normal is still possible, but that’s thrown out the window when an anonymous group pushes back against the unreasonable precautions the school administration is Language: R (50 swears, 19 “f,” 1 “c”); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG13 (school shooting and action sequences) The first day of school is never great, but this first day of school is making the news because it’s also the first day of its reopening after a school shooting in May. Anouk just wants it to be a normal day to prove that normal is still possible, but that’s thrown out the window when an anonymous group pushes back against the unreasonable precautions the school administration is taking. As these students discover the odd similarities between their experiences with the shooting, they have to decide what they’re going to do with the new challenges arising. The story was interesting, though the cause of the students’ powers is still ambiguous enough to be confusing. I wasn’t bored as I read, but I also don’t feel very compelled to find the following volumes to discover the answers to multiple unresolved questions. Overall, it was a good read with good illustrations, I just didn’t find it to be great. Reviewed for https://kissthebook.blogspot.com/

    It's the start of a new school year. Unfortunately, for the teens in Ignited that means returning not only to school, but the place where tragedy in the form of a school shooting happened. While most students struggle with facing the lost of friends, others struggle with finding they have become ignited by the shooting and in doing so have gained superpowers. With the argument that teachers should be armed as well it is not a normal start to the school year. The ignited teens must decide which It's the start of a new school year.

With the argument that teachers should be armed as well it is not a normal start to the school year. The ignited teens must decide which side of the argument they are on and what they are going to do about it. This graphic novel is very prevalent to today's society and tackles a very hot topic. This is not your typical graphic novel despite it having characters with super powers. This is definitely a book for older teens due to the sensitive nature and the language which the characters use. With that being said, I can appreciate how this book can continue to spark and encourage discussions about the epidemic that is affecting our country.

    Trigger warning: School shooting During a school shooting several kids see a purple light and gain super human abilities. They decide to use those abilities to protect the school when the local government is deciding to arm teachers. This was a hard book for me to read. The reactions of the students and teachers hit a little too close to home for me. It broke my heart reading the book and at the same time infuriated me. I wanted to yell at the people who believed more guns were the answer.
