This was one of the earlier Discovery Graphic Novels and didn't have as much scientific info as the later volume on Great Whites but is still an entertaining read. There are more species of sharks that have attacked humans than I thought, but at guess at some point probably every species has attacked a person, it just wasn't recorded. It also didn't add an estimate to the number of people Whitetip Sharks have killed because that's probably in the thousands. Whitetips are only found in deep water ...more

This comic goes to great pains to emphasize that sharks are beneficial animals, not "bad guys", they rarely harm humans, and we are a far greater threat to them than they are to us. Nevertheless, it reels in readers with the sensational "Jaws" type imagery. Hmm...

This graphic novel lists and briefly describes 10 sharks that are documented in attacks on humans.

For some of the species, the book uses its space to provide scientific information about the species; in others, it talks about sharks in general. Much of the time, the book includes anecdotal information about a given species of shark, such as a description of a historic attack on a human.

The book is not bad, but if you live your life without having read it, or even seen it, it is doubtful that yo

I am so glad that Discovery Channel is making nonfiction graphic novels- there is definitely a market out there and it is smart to jump on it.

I am pretty fascinated with sharks and am always looking for new books for me and my students- this one will definitely be added to my classroom.

I enjoy how the book is set up- it is a graphic novel that is filled with diagrams, scientific facts, narrative nonfiction, traditional literature and geograp

I learned about some new sharks, so that was interesting. the art in this one is probably the best of all three I read (Megalodon and Great White Sharks were the others) and a decent overview of the animal. I was confused about the Whitetip's "attack file" which listed its recorded attacks as 8 and "unprovoked fatalities" as zero. And the we proceed to read a story about a passenger ship that got torpedoes in WW2 where several hundred people died, many of them from sharks. Something's not being ...more
