Brazen, a completely unique graphic novel by Penelope Bagieu, contains the biographies of 30 extraordinary women. They are completely independent of each other– they hail from all corners of the world and span each period of human history – except for the fact that their achievements have remained obscure. (Only a very few could be described as famous, among them Josephine Baker, Mae Jemison, and Margaret Hamilton). This graphic novel serves not only as a clever collection of beautiful illustrations, but also as an educational tool to learn about the trailblazer's history has forgotten.
Bagieu's illustrations are wonderful, and really help bring these amazing stories to life. They are simplistic and do not feel overproduced, so they don't distract from the actual story. There is a definite pattern that helps each story to flow seamlessly and makes the book very easy to read.
Bagieu herself says this about Brazen: “This book is by no means a thorough scholarly work; rather, it’s one woman’s tribute — my homage to the full, daring lives they lead, often against great odds.” And in my opinion, this homage is fitting of the marvelous women who fill the pages. I can only hope she has more volumes to give us down the road! ( )

Thumbnail biographical sketches of 29 women who did not let societal expectations keep them from doing what they wanted with their lives: each story is about 8 pages or so. A broad swath of women, mostly from 19th and 20th century, some will be known to readers, but many will not, just adding to the book's uniqueness. Each woman receives several panels that detail her life from birth to death with important milestones, and then, author/artist Baglieu concludes with a two-page colorful spread identifying key themes for each subject.

Thanks to GR for nominating this for a Best 2019 book, and bringing it to my attention. ( )

I'm sure it's partially due to having a really tough week, but I got so emotional reading this book. There were several points throughout reading this today that I got choked up...I was so overwhelmed by the successes of these women, the obstacles they faced, their brains, their panache, their feistiness. I really enjoyed Exquisite Corpse and California Dreamin', and after this, I am so solidly in Camp Bagieu, I need to track down all her work even if I can barely read it because it was never translated from the original French.

To be sure, these are broad portraits of complex women, but I dare anyone to read this and walk away without having their curiosity burning hot. I seriously want to read biographies of every woman featured here now. The way she presents them gives you just enough information to get hooked. This is exactly what I wanted Ann Shen's [b: Bad Girls Throughout History: 100 Remarkable Women Who Changed the World|28645694|Bad Girls Throughout History 100 Remarkable Women Who Changed the World|Ann Shen|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1490070383s/28645694.jpg|48832506] to be, but never got. This is an incredibly inclusive representation--old and young, the gamut of professions, LGBTQ, ancient history and more recent...you name it. Bagieu, even in these short bios, provided new information about the women I already was familiar with, and introduced me to many more that I may have never heard of otherwise. That list of 30 more women at the end better mean she'll be publishing a Part 2. I have a strong feeling I'll be buying this when it comes out in March.

Many thanks to First Second and Net Galley for the advanced copy of this wonderful collection. ( )
