Challenged for political viewpoint, racism, and violence


Retained in the Rosemount (MN) elementary school libraries despite a parent’s concern that the series includes smoking, drinking, and gambling in its graphics and story-lines. The series is rated suitable for fourth grade and up, has won several awards, and received positive reviews from national publications, including Time, which touted the series as the “best all-ages graphic novel ever published.”.
