Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
The "Bloodlines" series by M. Zachary Sherman is designed to provide readers with action packed adventure set in the world of soldiers in combat. In this chapter of this illustrated series readers are introduced to yet another member of the Donovan family, whom are featured throughout the various books that make up the set. In this case it is Tony Donovan, a member of the United States Army's 24th Engineer Battalion. Tony is serving during the Korean War when the transport he is flying in is shot down behind enemy lines. Tony is bedeviled by his commanding officer who is inexperienced and at odds over how to stage the survivor's escape. Eventually North Korean troops do locate the handful of American soldiers who survive the crash. Faced with seemingly certain death, Tony Donovan and his comrades must use every bit of their ingenuity, courage, and resilience to have any hope of survival. Amplifying this fast paced story are the comic style illustrations of Josef Cage and Marlong Iligan. This combination works and results in a story that will hold its audience's attention in a way that graphic novels often do. Damage Control is based on the experiences of veterans and will appeal to youngsters who are fascinated by soldier's stories. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
