Eli is a boy of mysterious origins, adopted by an older couple who run the lighthouse at Eagle Rock off the coast of Maine. His inventions range from a root beer maker to a mini submarine, and even though he’s just a preteen boy, he saves a U.S. Navy submarine (with the help of the mysterious Commander X) and joins a group of marine researchers, known as the Seasearchers. Eli’s first major venture with the Seasearchers takes him to the Sargasso Sea, where he encounters hostile fish-shaped submarines that attack his mini sub and he is again saved by Commander X. This graphic novel not only provides an adventure story but also conveys information about the ocean world. It’s reminiscent of the Jonny Quest and Clutch Cargo television cartoons, with a similar art style tempered with 3D CGI elements, as well as the classic Tom Swift and Hardy Boys books. Though the narrative is a little too wordy, this adventure comic should do well in school libraries that need more educational choices that can also entertain. Grades 3-5. --Kat Kan
