Nonfiction Graphic Novels

Here in the kids section of Brilliant Books, we love graphic novels! And luckily for all of us here and all of your young graphic novel fans out there, there are so many good ones coming out lately! 

I am particularly excited with the number of new nonfiction and historical graphic novels we've been seeing lately. Nathan Hale has been around for a while and is a perennial favorite, but there are a number of new editions to the historical and science scene. There are a variety here, varying in subject matter, for your young historians and scientists.
