Booklist - 05/15/2022 The Who HQ Graphic Novels series (3 new titles) does an excellent job of quickly engaging readers by capturing the drama and immediacy of pivotal historic events. Each biography profiles one famous individual and plunges readers into the past with equal degrees of intensity. After a page or two of introductory material that sets historic and social context, the stories deploy snappy dialogue and vibrant artwork to effectively propel the action. Who Was the Daring Pioneer of the Skies? begins with a press conference during which Amelia Earhart announces her upcoming flight to misogynistic reporters and eventually segues to increasingly frantic members of the Coast Guard awaiting her long-overdue arrival at the Howland Islands. In addition to the occasional explanatory sidebar, titles include concluding summaries, time lines, and bibliographies. These graphic offerings manage to pack in an impressive amount of information and are sure to appeal to middle-grade readers. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
