Praise For…

"Algozzino has worked with sharp lines that keep the characters strong and focused but a color palette that’s primarily sepia toned to evoke the proper time period."
— BookRiot

“Cimino and Algozzino capture Nellie’s daring spirit and righteous anger in confidently loose lined illustrations colored in teals and yellow watercolor style. This concise primer serves as a welcoming introduction to Bly’s biography…”
— Publishers Weekly

“This graphic biography combines its artwork with an able narrative to show what made Nellie Bly so incredible.”
— Foreword Reviews

“Hopefully we will have many more graphic novels with this subject; biopics about outstanding women should never be hard to find. That′s what the trailblazing movement is all about: putting in the spotlight women who made history, against insurmountable odds, so that they are not forgotten.”
