If you loved Rejected Princesses and Almost Famous Women, you're going to love this new graphic novel. Pénélope Bagieu's Brazen tells the stories of game-changing women from around the globe, and I've got a sneak peak at one of the more than 25 mini-biographies it contains.

Brazen originated as a series of comics published on Bagieu's Le Monde blog, Les Culottées. The illustrator has already published two volumes of Culottées in France, and now First Second Books plans to bring Bagieu's comics to English-speaking audiences as Brazen.

Needless to say, Bagieu looks forward to having her work reach a wider audience through translation. She says:

Read the story of the Mirabal sisters in the excerpt below, and pick up your copy of Brazen when it hits store shelves on March 6, 2018.
