NEW ALBANY, Ohio, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Justice, the #1 destination for all things tween girls, today announced that it will be releasing, “Ultra Squad,” the first piece of content from its recently launched new entertainment division, Justice Studios this Saturday, Nov. 3. Ultra Squad is the first book in a new graphic novel series that follows the journeys of four tween girls as they battle an evil force threatening Earth and use their magical super-girl powers to save the universe.

Meet the Ultra Squad
Ultra Squad was specially created for a generation of girls who want to make the world a better place through teamwork, positivity and justice. The series features four main characters (Posey, Anna, Lyric and Sky), who come together and find out that their unique personalities can truly make a difference in and out of this world.

  • Posey (Pink): She loves acting and has a passion for fashion, especially anything with sequins and glitter! Her motto is “Born to shine!”
  • Anna (Turquoise): She is a gymnast who loves to stay active both through sports like lacrosse and rock wall climbing. Her motto is “Girls run the world...and the galaxy!”
  • Lyric (Purple): She lives for music and her guitar and also loves writing poetry and volunteering at the dog shelter. Her motto is “Girls rock!”
  • Sky (Green): She is super plugged into technology and loves science experiments (like slime!). Her motto is “Problem? Problem solved.”

“At Justice, we are and always have been wholly invested in empowering girls in unique ways while providing a positive and safe platform parents can trust,” said Lece Lohr, President of Justice. “Through Ultra Squad and its relatable characters, we can show our girls that teamwork and positivity can make all the difference in the world.”

Ultra Squad was written by bestselling young adult author, Julia DeVillers, and illustrated by Rafael Rosado. The book will be available just in time for the holidays in stores nationwide and online for $8.00. To celebrate the launch, Ultra Squad will be free in-store with a $25 purchase.*  The second book in the Ultra Squad collection is slated for early 2019.
