Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-These eye-catching books not only draw inspiration and style from comic books, but also employ experienced illustrators and inkers from the field. Though the bright and boldly colored illustrations capture the spirit of comic books, they differ from the traditional framing readers are accustomed to, instead favoring one to three cells per page. The effect gives the books a rushed feel that, while maintaining a sense of excitement, leaves little room for subtlety in illustrations or details. Some important facts and references are added at the end of each book, but since undermotivated readers are unlikely to utilize these tools, the main text is occasionally oversimplified. Overall, these books would work well for introducing hi/lo readers to the subjects, but their use is limited as resources for reports.-Dawn Rutherford, Kings County Library System, Bellevue, WA

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. In the tradition of Illustrated Classics, the legendary series of abridged, comic book-style literary classics, comes this high-interest title in the new Graphic History series, a part of the larger Graphic Library imprint. Bold inking and coloring by a studio of DC and Marvel veterans give the pages a polished, dynamic look, although the tan backgrounds that indicate primary source material (which, unfortunately, is left undocumented) are a bit subtle. Of course, the Titanic disaster provides ample occasion to employ the "Ka-Pow! Boom! Krak!" language of the genre, and accordingly moments of high drama ("Iceberg, right ahead! Reverse the engines!") receive more play here than subtler issues, such as the way passengers' economic and social status affected the likelihood of their survival. Still, this noncondescending volume represents a shot in the arm for a category of children's publishing too prone to blandness; a URL to a publisher-maintained list of Web resources will help interested youngsters fill in the gaps.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm all in favor of children having access to age-appropriate material about the Titanic, and I bought this copy of THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC (Graphic History) partly out of curiosity and partly because I myself like graphic novels. Although I appreciated the lively artwork, I was disappointed by a number of factual flaws I found in the text:

-- Ship Captain Edward J. Smith is consistently portrayed in the graphic novel with a dark, salt-and-pepper beard. However, contemporaneous photographs of Smith show nothing other than a snow-white beard and mustache.

-- Margaret Tobin ("Molly") Brown had indeed married a "highly successful" Colorado gold miner, but it was her husband's invention of a better way to extract gold from the mining process that made them rich and gave her entry to high society. It is highly unlikely that the wife of just any miner, even a miner of gold, would hobnob with the Astors, tour the Pyramids, and afford first-class transatlantic passage! Also, she was not given the nickname "Molly" until after her death in 1932. Close friends called her "Maggie."

-- The dialog has ship's designer Thomas Andrews telling Captain Smith, "The iceberg has ripped many holes." This is a modern diagnosis based on post-1985 underwater examination of the Titanic's hull and metallurgic examination of some of its hand-hammered rivets. Anyone on the Titanic would have conceived of the iceberg as inflicting a continuous gash or scar, and went to their grave believing that. At one point, even the graphic novel says, "The iceberg ripped through the hull."

-- This is a minor point, but Titanic's laden weight is given in the graphic novel as 45,000 metric tons, equivalent to 50,000 of the kind of tons we still use in the USA.

The Canadian Titanic Society consulted in the production of this children's book and endorse it to be historically accurate and to be very educational. This book as been done to a high quality standard and I recommend it highly!

My son isn't the best reader, but this book combines the 2 things that he seems to enjoy reading, disasters and comics. A fairly accurate history is written in an easier to read format.

This is part of Capstone's Graphic Library. I use these books to teach my ESOL students to read English and American History. The Titanic story may not be an essential turning point in American History but students find it a very exciting story. I do too! It brings history to life for these kids and much better than the old black and white graphic novels that teachers had to deal with. Very nice!
