This historical graphic novel adventure tells the story of twins Alexander and Cleopatra who have recently been orphaned and find themselves on the run when they betray the gang of thieves who had taken them in. Alex and Cleo become separated on their way to San Francisco and each face a heaping helping of pirates and peril.
A swashbuckling romp with sophisticated plotting, Compass South will have wide, all-ages appeal. Very satisfying, yet leaving several mysteries dangling, I will absolutely seek out the second installment. Great fun!
