I love everything about this graphic novel. I love the illustrations, I love the stories, and I love the brazen ladies. Not only are these ladies brazen, they are also courageous, inspiring, and powerful. These amazing ladies deserve…

Brazen, a completely unique graphic novel by Penelope Bagieu, contains the biographies of 30 extraordinary women. They are completely independent of each other– they hail from all corners of the world and span each period of human history…

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! Illustration is great and it's not the same old stories about the same old women over and over again... diverse, comedic, and impactful!

First graphic novel I read. As a senior citizen didn't think this genre was for me. However, it was a short and easy to read; historically informative; humorous. I have recommended this many times as reference material and/ or means of…

Why did I not know ALL these EXTRAORDINARY, adventuresome, amazing women?!? These women should be CENTRAL to history. This is my first graphic novel and it is all I hoped and more. If there are more like this, it will not be my…

While I was reading this book, my face was a giant heart-eyes emoji. I was expecting to find this book interesting, but I did not expect to be completely charmed! In a series of short comics, Bagieu tells the stories of women who are too…

I really like this. It was eye-opening and I felt very inspired by each woman's story. I highly recommend this for everyone. CHARACTERS: Each woman was portrayed really well, and they all speak for themselves. I thought it was nice how…

What a wonderful compendium of strong women! Some were very familiar; Josephine Baker & Temple Grandin, but others were very interesting and compelling women I’ve never heard of: “Tres Mariposas” from the Dominican Republic, Leymah…

This eclectic array of women's biographies is truly impressive in scope. (Granted, the comic format isn't as in-depth as some would want, but the biographies are done with great empathy. I appreciated that Bagieu told the stories…

A graphic novel was the perfect format for this book. Bagieu imbued just enough humor into her stories and art to make you want to learn more about every single woman in it - many of whom I had never heard of.

I think what I love most about this book is the fact that I hadn't heard of quite of few of these women so I really feel like I learned a bunch of new information. I enjoyed the humor and the illustrations and the diversity of the women…
