I love Kadir Nelson's artwork. He is an immense talent. The illustrations in this Joe Louis story are magnificent. Matt de la Pena's biography of the Joe Louis v Max Schemeling fight was very well done. I am very familiar with this story and this is an excellent introduction to this moment is history.
