This book is an interesting take on helping children work through traumatic events. The authors' use of the graphic novel format is a good choice; I think kids would be much more likely to pick up a graphic novel about a girl with super powers than something more akin to an adult self-help book. While it won't win an Eisner, I think Dark Agents achieves its goal, and I would recommend it to anyone helping a young person suffering from PTSD.

This graphic novel is meant to provide a way for young people who have suffered from trauma to understand their history and work toward a healthy live. Using a story about superhero types fighting evil, it attempts to explain what trauma is and what those who have experienced it might feel or act like because of it. Further it tries to offer techniques like mindfulness and acceptance/commitment therapy to help those sufferers cope. All are good goals but this book as a whole misses the mark. The story is not well flushed out, the characters are not fully constructed (therefore confusing) and this reader didn't come to care about any of them. The "message" part of the story is hard hitting and sounds like a lecture or therapy session not like a superhero story. Although well intentioned, I don't think it hits the mark for an interesting series that a casual, not traumatized young person would want to read. ( )

Synopsis: Violet's parents are murdered by a necromancer when she is a child, leaving her to learn her craft from her grandfather as they go into hiding. When she turns 19, she goes into training to become a Dark Agent. Her goal is to take revenge on the person who killed her parents; however, her success is threatened by her inability to deal with her early trauma.
Review: This graphic novel is actually a manual for children who have PTSD. The illustrations are excellent. But while the therapy may be well grounded in psychological practice, the story is thin and disjointed. I kept waiting for the story to develop, however it never did. ( )

This is a very interesting concept for a young adult graphic novel, it is a fantasy tale about a young witch that has been through a lot of trauma, so the main focus of the book is also about that trauma and how to deal with and overcome it. So the below review is focused on the fact that this book is to be used as a teaching tool, probably for therapists and the like.

Violet is a witch who has lost her family to an evil Necromancer who is stealing souls of powerful witches, she has also been in his line of fire (literally) as well. She is determined to avenger her family and find the Necromancer, so she is enlisted in training for the Dark Agents, the FBI/CIA of the supernatural realm of this book. The book combines mythology with other supernatural characters as well as a teen drama, it is a fun little package. As Violet learns to cope and understand her emotions she becomes better equipped to take on her new life as a Dark Agent and try to help then track this notorious killer.

The overall theme of helping was very prominent. Full spreads on mindfulness and grounding yourself in order to better understand and pull back your emotions in order to center or recenter yourself. The book notes that this is called ACT - acceptance and commitment therapy. I found it to be very insightful and believe that this book will be a good teaching tool for counselors, therapists and the like. It is done in a way that works well with the plot of this story and the characters, but I think that the teens that read it might also need a nudge in order to use the methods discussed in the book.

At times the methods used seemed to disconnect the reader form the plot (at least that was my feeling). I think that it could have been embedded better but in the overall story they seem to make sense.

Some overall thoughts, as a book not focused on emotional trauma, it was not that wonderful. It seemed a little throw together AROUND the therapeutic elements. However, as I mentioned, as a teaching tool this might be a very helpful type of read for young adults dealing with emotional issues, trauma, or that just need this type of therapy. ( )

I received this book for free from Early Reviewers. While I loved the illustrations, the story was a bit confusing. The rest of my review is on the link below.
