Gr. 5-up. Crossovers is an entertaining, engaging look at a typical suburban family, each of whom has unique powers. Dad Carter Crossover is the superhero archetype, mom Calista is a vampire slayer, daughter Cris is a warrior princess, and son Cliff collaborates with aliens. This simple idea works beautifully as each character tries to hide his or her abilities from the others. Eventually their separate lives come together--with total chaos as the result. The surprising ending makes perfect sense out of mass confusion. Rodi has an easy style that captures the feel of each comics genre accurately and with light humor. The artwork complements the writing, with bright, primary colors and bold inking conveying the energy of the scenarios. Color is also strategically used; the colors converge as the characters' worlds come together. Well suited to middle and older readers alike, this will satisfy graphic novel fans and also provide readers new to graphic novels with an entertaining entry to the format. Cathy Buksar
