Reviews

Listed as a Best New Comic of 2023 by the New York Public Library
A Junior Library Guild selection

"Wimberly's script navigates haunting scenes of racism and ultimate optimism and triumph. Revel (Guerillas) draws emotive faces and propulsive action, as fluidly rendering a boxing ring as a battlefield... [Now Let Me Fly] carries off the lift of a pulp adventure, while memorializing Bullard's warrior spirit." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Bullard's life was full of danger, adventure, and opportunities he created, and this fascinating story has very broad appeal. A great first purchase for all libraries."--School Library Journal, starred review
