Justice Releases Second Installment of Tween-Favorite Graphic Novel Series, “Ultra Squad”

April 2, 2019

NEW ALBANY, Ohio, April 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Justice, the #1 destination for all things tween girl, has announced the release of the second book in its “Ultra Squad” series, called “Ultra Squad, Under the Strangebow.” To complement the book, Justice is also launching an “Ultra Squad” capsule collection that includes journals, bracelets, squishies and a lip gloss and body glitter set, so ultra fans can live and breathe the series in their everyday lives!

The “Ultra Squad” series launched this past November when the first book in the series hit store shelves, introducing tweens to the four main characters - Anna, Posey, Lyric and Sky. The teen characters all came together to discover that their unique super powers can make a difference in and out of this world, and together they can make anything happen. Tweens fell in love with the characters and truly connected with their message of making the world a better place through teamwork, positivity and justice. “Ultra Squad, Under the Strangebow” is now available at all Justice locations nationwide and online at www.shopjustice.com for $8.
