Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

These three lively Amerimanga from 2005 have been pumped up lexicographically to help high schoolers cram for SAT and ACT vocabulary exams. In Psy*Comm, genetically engineered Special Forces teams duke it out in real-life military dramas to entertain the masses. But a Romeo-Juliet relationship across enemy lines unsettles everything, with sous-texterelevant to the reality TV craze and the meaning of war. The Sunwell Trilogydepicts one plot arc in the Warcraft universe, immensely popular for its games and novels, with finely drawn, dramatic art. The long introduction and complex backstory may lose newcomers, but Dragon Huntitself is easy to follow, with its stock plot and characters: a hero-cum-dragon, a mysterious maiden, and the evil mongers they contend with to save the High Elven Kingdom. Van Von Hunteris a goofy parody of quest-against-evil plots, not complex or elegant but good fun nonetheless. One of the hero's trials is to eat a disgustingly ancient, fungi-ridden sandwich, which he cleverly hides and later feeds to an attacking demon. Each is rated ages 13+ and incorporates over 300 SAT/ACT words, defined in the margins and indexed in the back. Occasionally, the higher-level language sounds a little odd, but the visual appeal and stories come through just fine. With graphic context added to the narrative for deciphering word meanings, these titles should be quite useful for young adult collections as well as for adult literacy, reluctant reader, and ESL programs.
