Calamity Jack

Calamity Jack - Dean Hale;Shannon Hale Everything about this graphic-action-superhero-romance works! I confess I find the graphic novel a challenge for my over forty brain to comprehend. But when a work has a luscious visual landscape, with action sequences that flow smooth film, mixed with witty dialogue and character development that would make Nora Ephron sit up and take notice, my brain is not only engaged but jubilant to meet this story head on.I'm glad I got first crack at this because once my students get wiff of it, it will only visit the library long enought to change hands.
