    Such a great assortment of stories and creators this time! I think I loved everything included. Great fun and I love getting these books in kids hands! A great intro to some popular characters too, readers can read more about them in their own series.

    Never having had detention I was quite curious about how it would be depicted in these short comic format stories. And of course all the stories are quite absurd, but thoroughly engaging and entertaining and bound to be enjoyed by many young readers. From a student expecting detention but being made a kindergarten helper to a Lunch Lady story to a girl trying to get detention so her crush will notice her, the stories here vary widely but are all amusing.

And of course all the stories are quite absurd, but thoroughly engaging and entertaining and bound to be enjoyed by many young readers. From a student expecting detention but being made a kindergarten helper to a Lunch Lady story to a girl trying to get detention so her crush will notice her, the stories here vary widely but are all amusing. From some of the best graphic artists currently doing children's books the reader should be able to find something he/she likes. My favorites were the story of the girl trying to get in trouble, made difficult by a rather clueless principal, and the Holm's Squish who is thoroughly depressed by having detention.

    Another Comics Squad collection, this one focusing on detention. This is a great series for kids who love comics - lots of their favorite comic artists are represented here. Since each story is short, this makes an excellent book for browsing or for times when kids don't have a lot of time to read.

    I probably shouldn't pick favorites, but Ben Hatke's story is the best.

    A compilation of comics by talented creators. All the stories have something to do with recess. Most are stand-alone stories; a few feature well-known serialized characters (like Babymouse, Lunch Lady, and Squish), but even those stories are original and can be enjoyed without reading those series.

    This book is filled with school-themed comics from popular authors and illustrators. It's the third installment in the Comics Squad series. All of the stories refer to getting sent to detention in some way and yet they are all different. I love that there are some stories featuring our favorite characters as well as new ones.

I love that there are some stories featuring our favorite characters as well as new ones. It was very interesting to see George O'Connor take on a more cartoonish school version of the Greek mythologies compared to his amazing graphic novel series featuring the Olympians. Fans of any one of these authors will likely find a new character, series, or storyline they may want to read about again. We've read the previous books in this collection, Comics Squad: Recess! and Comics Squad: Lunch!, and really enjoyed them both. I hope there are more published soon!

    Copy provided by the publisher. Like Comics Squad- Lunch! and Comics Squad- Recess!, this book showcases the illustrative talents of some of today's favorite graphic artists for children. We do have some old favorites, like Squish and the Lunch Ladies, but there are some fun new entries from George O'Connor, who does a fun take on Sisyphus in detention, in keeping with his books about the Olympian gods, and a story by Jorge and Raf that makes me wonder why they haven't done an older middle grade Copy provided by the publisher.

Victoria Jamieson has a story that showcases the complicated emotionals and behavioral issues of middle school, and Lark Pien and Matt Phelan have interesting fantasy excursions; after all, how does one survive serving a detention with some imagination? This is a great book to hand to students about to enter middle school about two weeks before school is to start. Have to get them warmed up and prepared, right?

    A collection of short graphic novels for middle grades that all center on the topic of detention. The Breakfast Bunch in Detention Disaster by Jarrett J. Krosoczka *** Kids from Lunch Lady comics think the new teacher is putting them in detention because they overheard him talking about an evil plot to take over the city. -Wasn't sure where this was headed. But I liked the twist at the end. Cheating Death w/ Sisyphus by George O'Connor **** Sisyphus gets himself in trouble by cheating and faces A collection of short graphic novels for middle grades that all center on the topic of detention. The Breakfast Bunch in Detention Disaster by Jarrett J. Krosoczka *** Kids from Lunch Lady comics think the new teacher is putting them in detention because they overheard him talking about an evil plot to take over the city. -Wasn't sure where this was headed. But I liked the twist at the end. Cheating Death w/ Sisyphus by George O'Connor **** Sisyphus gets himself in trouble by cheating and faces detention as a result. -Oh boy, this is probably THE worst detention ever. It's also a nice retelling of the Greek myth of Sisyphus. Worse Than Detention by Victoria Jamieson **** A young troublemaker find that at her new school instead of detention, you get sent to help the kindergarten class for a while. -As a teacher, I find this punishment system AWESOME! Hehehe. I think this girl has learned her lesson. Milo's Journey by Ben Hatke *** Milo finds some strange things in his desk during detention...or does he? -This one will have kids debating whether Milo's adventure is real or not. Too Nice! by Rafael Rosado & Jorge Aguirre **** A nice girl with a perfect record and a crush on the cool rebellious kid tries to get herself sent to detention on purpose so she can be near him. Her best friend is constantly trying to help save her. -I love the irony of the humor in this. I also like that the girl has a solid friend speaking wisdom to her. Of course, some people have to learn things the hard way. Cyclopean Kid: Detention Is Forever! by Lark Pien *** Cyclops gets sent to the top of the mountain for detention. He's afraid he'll get stuck up there forever. -The twist at the end of this was cute. And I like that the cyclops has learned his lesson, detention just isn't worth missing out on all the fun. Think about What You've Done by Matt Phelan You're not quite sure what is going on with this kid in detention and the strange circular creature who appears...until the very end. -I'll be curious to see if kids can puzzle out the meaning of this one. It's a good exercise in reading visual clues. Squish: Leave No Cell Behind by Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm **** Squish can't leave Peggy when she trips on the way to school, even if it means being late and getting a detention. A hero wouldn't leave anyone behind. -And the lesson is, it is super to be a good friend. And you should never, ever give Pod twinkies! Overall a fun collection kids will enjoy. Notes on content: No language issues or sexual content. Some bumps and bruises but no serious injuries.

    I wish I liked this installment more but it has enough star power to have it be popular with kids. I wasn't really familiar with some of the contributors' works so maybe that's why I didn't enjoy it as much. And at least one story felt rushed in terms of its artwork but that was probably the style the graphic novelist was going for.

    Short comics on the subject of detention. I like all of the different approaches that appear here. A great book for grades 3-5, as well as any adult wanting a survey of leading comic book writers and illustrator writing for children.

    What is not to like about Comic Squad? Detention is not fun for anyone, except for maybe Clara?

    I read it at school during quiet time. We can read or draw during quiet time. I thought it was interesting and kind of funny. Some of the stories were funny.

    Hit or miss. Mostly miss. Prepubescent boy humor, but probably not the kind you read and reread.

    I love this series and other short story collections, because kids can read a story and then find an author they want to read more.

    I'd Rate It 0 Stars If I Could This is a great opportunity to see what's called junk after Goodreads sees this they're probably going to rename it bad reads

    A sampling of some graphic novels-it was about as good as the first two.

    An odd ball collection of short stories covering the causes and effects of after school detention. The warning on the back of the book didn't live up to its disclaimer.
