MEDIA REVIEWS
In our world, Amelia Earhart disappeared somewhere over the Central Pacific Ocean in 1937. In Elsewhere, Jay Faerber postulates that she and her airplane go through a portal and end up in another world. In a world called Korvath, escaped slaves, Cort and Tavel, rescue a woman dangling from a parachute caught in the trees; she is Amelia Earhart. She and her navigator, Fred Noonan, both bailed out of their airplane, but somehow she has landed on Korvath (Fred may have done so, too). Very soon, Amelia finds herself caught up in a conflict between freedom fighters and a merciless, masked warlord named Lord Kragen. This world does not have aircraft, but Amelia quickly learns how to fly on one of the empathic Korvathian steeds. When she, Cort, and Tavel go on a rescue mission to Kragen's fortress, they do not find Fred, but another human-Dan ("call me DB") Cooper. Cooper parachuted from the plane he hijacked and held for ransom in 1971 and was never seen again (but he does not tell that to anyone). Amelia learns that other vehicles and people have come to Korvath from Earth, including a German U-boat from World War II. However, even as she tries to assure Cort's people that she and DB are good, not like the aggressive (and now dead) Nazi submariners, DB is making plans of his own. Elsewhere is the first volume of a planned series. This story is not totally original-it has the same vibe as the John Carter of Mars series by Edgar Rice Burroughs-but it is a great adventure with a fun take on a female American hero. Artist Sumeyye Kesgin draws Amelia pretty much as she looked in real life, although she looks younger than she was at the time of her disappearance (she was in her late 30s). Teens who love fictional dragons and winged horses will love the Korvathian steeds.
