Read full description of the books:



While this graphic novel was visually stunning in places, with this nearly sepia tone feel to it images, interesting paneling and a nice mix of text with more traditional comic word balloons and captions, its narrative just wasn't that interesting.

It might be that already well-aware of the life and achievements of Roberto Clemente, this example of telling his story wasn't meant for me, but even if I weren't it seemed very simple and straightforward (and in some places disjointed) re-telling of anecdotes culled from other sources. It did not use the graphic medium as a way to explore the more complex ideas of race and identity that Clemente's story calls on us to consider - the secondary status of Puerto Rican citizens, the contentious relationship between African-Americans and (esp. dark-skinned) Puerto Ricans in the U.S., Clemente's treatment by the Pittsburgh press, who were patronizing and belittling. . . etc. . . Most of all, the lack of almost any Spanish demonstrates Santiago's unwillingness to challenge his readers and the primacy of English by presenting a text that uses the two languages to shift our point of view and reinforce the feeling of outsider status for some readers.

It was okay, but ultimately missed a great opportunity to elevate both the comics and the biography form into something worth talking about and studying.
