Graphic Novel Spotlight - Satchel Paige

Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow by James Sturm and Rich Tommaso

Even the harshest critics of graphic novels must see the educational value of books like this one. What better way to introduce an historical figure to a young reader than in a format that they already enjoy? Baseball is well suited to the graphic novel format. Action and dramatic shots abound. While the art is less refined than in some books it works well in this instance. A good choice for both sports and history fans.
