Messenger: The Legend of Joan of Arc: A Graphic Novel

by Tony Lee and Sam Hart. Sommerville, MA: Candlewick Press, 2014

Told with a superhero comic look this book relays historical facts and legends around the life and death of Joan of Arc and can easily be used to complement European history curricula. Content is relayed through images and passages of philosophical, religious, political, and personal reflections.

Starred review from School Library Journal.

Grades 9+
