    1. WOW 6 star bookthe best baseball book i ve read baseball fans will learn something new, but non sports fans will care about these people because of Lawless writing and art i ll be recommending this to people.


    2. I think this book is a really great book for people to read if they like baseball or they are into sports The book is about a bad accident that happened around the early 1900s It happened to a Cleveland Indians player and a famous New York Yankees pitcher The player from the Indians name was Ray Chapman and the player from the Yankees is Carl Mayes It was on August 16th and they were playing against each other that day Carl Mayes was having a great day throwing heat and striking people out like [...]


    3. Molly Lawless graphic novel about the only ballplayer to ever die during a baseball game is an incredible, well researched, entertaining read It documents the lives of Ray Chapman, the loveable ball player and socialite from the Cleveland Indians, and Carl Mays, the workhorse and occasionally cold pitcher from the New York Yankees, and how their paths intersected on August 16th, 1920, when Mays beaned Chapman, killing him The work really makes you feel for both players Chapman was so well liked [...]


    4. Ever since I heard of it, 25 years ago or so, I ve wanted to learn about the only on field death in Major League Baseball history This book provides a fine introduction, with some caveats Lawless is a terrific artist, and she really brings the people involved to life She has strong biases based on circumstantial evidence and it shows in her art Mays looks positively evil throughout most of the book, scowling and beady eyed There is something strange about how she draws eyes, actually Chapman an [...]


    5. Quite enjoyable, given the tragic subject Holly Lawless uses her art to tell the tale of the only fatal pitch in professional baseball, the one Carl Mays threw at Ray Chapman The book has the feel of the historical comic books I used to read as a kid and it s certainly age appropriate for young baseball fans Lawless fills the book with broad outlines and interesting tidbits concerning the fatal pitch itself, the two men involved, the aftermath, plus American culture and the culture of baseball L [...]


    6. This is a comic book style retelling of the true story of when Ray Chapman died from being hit by a pitch from Carl Mays in 1920 This is no spoiler since it s told in the first page, though I had not heard the story before The book focuses on the major similarities and differences of the two men, how they came together on that fateful day and the aftermath The comic format was well used and made for a quick and interesting read.



    7. Perhaps it oversells the tragedy of it all and maybe it tries to do a little too much in general there s a lot of odds and ends in the last 50 pages , but this was pretty enjoyable.


    8. Lawless makes you care about both Mays and Chapman as human beings The drawings are outstanding Loved this book Read it in one sitting.


    9. The best graphic novel of 2012 deserved far accolades and still deserves a much wider audience Completely great
