    "There aren't a lot of graphic novels for girls and my nephews are really into them, so when I saw this I thought that my daughter would get the pleasure of a good graphic novel just like them. She raved about the book for weeks and I ended up buying more from the series over the next few months."

    "This is such a great book for any young lady. Great imagery go along with great stories that really inspire the mind to think about things so much greater than ourselves. It is so hard to find anything that has any kind of literary quality these days, and this novel delivers on so many levels. This is a must read for anyone."

    "If you are a girl and love Scooby and the gang as much I do, You will definitely enjoy this iteration of the classic. This is on particular is more geared towards the female persuasion, but it still a very solid graphic novel. This one puts Daphne and Vilma in the for front as they are members of a roller derby team and then usual hi jinx inevitable begin. I highly recommend this comic to any body that loves Scooby and the gang. Now please excuse me while I go and grab myself some scooby snacks."

I found this one and while I was a bit skeptical because of the lackluster reviews, I took a chance on it anyway. Unfortunately, my sister didn't enjoy this graphic novel at all. She said it was her least favorite. Definitely returning this one."

    "This seems like a good graphic novel, however I don't believe girls specifically are the target audience. The target audience is fans of the 1966 Batman TV series, not specifically girls, so whether or not this appeals the female audience is a total crapshoot."
