About the Author:

The career path of Nel Yomtov has taken him from the halls of Marvel Comics, as an editor, writer, and colorist, to the world of toy development. He then became editorial and art director at a children’s nonfiction book publisher, and now Nel is a writer and editor of books, websites, and comics for children. A harmonica-honking blues enthusiast, Nel lives in New York with his wife, Nancy. They have a son, Jess.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-The heavy dependence on fictionalized content or unattributed information in this collection of profiles begs the question as to why the individuals are mentioned at all when so many licenses were taken with their actual stories. Attracting reluctant readers to history via a graphic-novel format has merit, but fictionalization for effect is a risky bet, and it's one these titles lose. A list of pages containing verified quotations is hidden at the front of three of the books; World War II contains no confirmed quotation notes. The illustrations vary from volume to volume, but are full of action and engaging. Despite a brief summary of the war, a time line, and a map as well as back matter, these books aren't appropriate for reports, and even browsers, especially the less sophisticated ones, need a preface explaining the purpose fictionalization serves.α(c) Copyright 2011.
