Elsewhere, Vol. 1 Elsewhere, Vol. 1 by Jay Faerber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An interesting take on the Amelia Earhart mystery: after the engine failed on their fateful trip, Fred Noonan and Amelia Earhart parachute away from the plane. However, Amelia finds herself falling towards a bright light and falls thru this light into an alternate universe. Not knowing where Fred is, she convinces two of the locals to help her storm the castle of the area's overlord, in hopes of saving Fred. Of course, this doesn't go entirely according to plan, and Amelia must make decisions then on how to save herself and get back home.

I've always been intrigued by the Amelia Earhart mystery, so this was an easy buy for me. The character-driven storytelling and simplistic, cartoon-ish yet solid art really made this a great book. Recommended!
