The fourth volume in the acclaimed series of comics biographies for younger readers produced under the auspices of The Center for Cartoon Studies, provides its first female subject, and we have to applaud their choice. Who better embodies the rugged individualism, the bold daring, and the fantasy of flight that we associate with comics books than Amelia Earhart? This Broad Ocean focuses on Earhart's successful 1928 crossing of The Atlantic Ocean, and young readers have a surrogate in the character of Grace, a sort of self-appointed cub reporter for the small, coastal Newfoundland village of Trepassey, from whence Earhart departed on her history-making (herstory-making?) trans-Atlantic solo-flight, and that is the setting for much of the story. Anyone looking to provide some inspiration and encouragement to a young reader should consider this volume, along with all the rest in the series.
