The Penguin’s Artic Adventure (Batman) by Donald Lemke -NO

Lemke, Donald The Penguin’s Artic Adventure (Batman) Harper, 2015. $3.99 PICTURE BOOK

Prominent Gotham business men have gone missing and Batman is on the case. When The Penguin opens a new artic exhibit, it gives Batman an idea about where the men could be. He and Robin go to investigate but magical help will be needed if they want to survive.

This was actually just a battle between two sexy female magicians, everything else was sort of unnecessary. I realize female comic book characters are often sexy, but could they have not toned it down slightly for an Early Ready/Picture book!? There is one close up barely contained chest shot! UGH! Plus it irked me that these all powerful magicians were just minion's of the non-magical penguin and batman. This one is going in the trash.
