The visibility and viability of illustrated narrative as a format for exceptionally effective non-fiction works has increased in recent years. From the subject of Broadway's Hamilton musical to awesome female characters from comic Book history, from personal growth at summer camp to thunder lizards, Dr. Travis Langley looks at the word and pictures choices made by Jonathan Hennessey (Alexander Hamilton and The Comic Book Story of Video Games),  Hope Nicholson (The Spectacular Sisterhood of Superwomen), Maggie Thrash (Honor Girl), and Abby Howard (Earth Before Us Book 1: Dinosaur Empire!: Journey through the Mesozoic Era).
