SLJ Review of Mission: Special Ops
This series features graphic fiction/nonfiction hybrids. Fictionalized dialogue bubbles mix with fact boxes to give an action-packed feel. Green Berets take on a rescue mission during the Iraq War, while pararescue jumpers work around the clock to save Hurricane Katrina victims. Army rangers fight off the Germans during D-Day. The writing is reader friendly, with harder words bolded and explained in the glossary. The artwork is expertly executed, ready to draw the audience in. These stories of true heroes end with photos showing the special ops in action, and what gear they use. A glossary, index, and link to find online sources are appended in each title. VERDICT Perfect for fans of graphic fiction and nonfiction, and budding military aficionados.
