Terrific graphic novel
This graphic novel is great. I love the background music that constantly keeps changing to reflect the mood of the story. This is exactly how a digital graphic novel should be done.
Not sure why anyone would give this a lesser rating. A FREE app that is timely, thoughtful and artistic.
I teach grade 11 Canadian history and this app is fantastic.
