The Comic Book Story of Baseball would be a great addition to any baseball fan’s shelf or school library. Alex Irvine effectively combines the history of our American pastime with the larger fabric our nation’s story. Thanks to the whimsical art style (who knew Walt Whitman owned a Beer Guzzler Helmet?) and its vast depth of knowledge, this book is a great vehicle to reach the reluctant reader and the advanced reader alike.
4 out of 5 stars
Comes out on May 8th, 2018.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Ten Speed Press, and Mr. Irvine for the advanced copy to review.
