What a truly magnificent work of graphic novel artistry. The Queen of the Sea uses the graphic novel medium superbly, reminding me just how powerful this mode of story telling is. The acutely rich historical details in this book truly make it a feast to behold. I was taken in from the very start!! - reviewed by Isabel
