On the heels of the home video release of the first DC Super Hero Girls original movie, Hero of the Year, here is our conversation with the writer of the DCSHG middle grade novels, Lisa Yee, from the lobby of the Grand Hyatt hotel during San Diego Comic-Con 2016!
Keith and Lisa talk about the genesis of the DC Super Hero Girls multimedia behemoth and how it was designed to bring new audiences to the superhero fold. They also debunk the false assumption that girls don’t play with action figures by playing with Lisa’s Supergirl figure in the middle of the interview! Lisa also explains how loss informs her latest Supergirl novel and why things that are labeled “feminine” should not be considered inferior.
Stay tuned for even more conversations from San Diego Comic Con 2016!
