Amelia Earhart This Broad Ocean, is a new graphic novel written by Sarah Stewart Taylor and drawn by Ben Towle. A quick aside regarding the subtitle of this book for those of you, like me, who thought that "This Broad Ocean" was odd: The word "broad" has been used as a slang word for woman, but as the liner notes in Amelia Earhart state, "this broad ocean" was what Amelia Earhart called the Pacific Ocean.
Amelia Earhart This Broad Ocean isn't a graphic novel biography of Amelia's whole life, rather it focuses on her crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in 1928. Actually this should be called a graphic novella because it's "only" seventy-five pages in length and I mention this not as a slight to Amelia Earhart This Broad Ocean, just that even though I enjoyed this look at one of Amelia's triumphant flights (and the attempts leading up to her success), I just wanted to read more (and fawn over more of Ben Towle's great line work). I want to add that this book was produced by The Center For Cartoon Studies Presents, who also brought us Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow and Houdini: The Handcuff King, two other great graphic novel biographies.
