      I wasn't really sure what to expect when I started reading Area 51. Was it going to be another UFO conspiracy piece, disguised as the "actual" story of the governments secret facility near Groom Lake, Nevada? Was it going to be something chock full of misinformation and deflection to keep everyone still guessing about the actual nature of the installation? Was it going to be full blown, open the doors, no holds-barred here are all the secrets? It was none of the above -- but it was still a fanta [...]

    • This book was very interesting and informative but it was lacking a little something though I can't place what. I liked how it focused more on the facts than the myths and the art was really cool especially with all the different air craft it displays.

      Please note two stars on is "It was ok." And it was, but fairly boring for me since it didn't really hit any major points of interest for me.This book won't be for the average person wanting Area 51 info. As in the description: "This first-of-its-kind graphic history strips away the fantastical aspects of this mysterious location and establishes the actual, significant history made there."In other words, this book is all planes and no elaboration on conspiracy theories. The theories are mention [...]

    • Kind of interesting and not what one expects from the title and cover. Not bad non-fiction. The aircraft and weapons history was fascinating and in some ways the truth is stranger than the fiction. I love that the tunnels do exist. As far as the art, the planes look great but much of the other illustrations are forgettable.

    • In a wordring.Now I'm not one of those conspiracy theorists but, in sounding like one, this graphic novel seems to try to dissuade ALL theories of aliens and so forth by saying 'look here, it was just aircrafts here and there.' Which, honestly, takes all the fun out of this Area 51 book! Just boring and not worth my time :/

    • The information is well-presented and in a non-inflammatory or exaggerated fashion. The artwork is ok, but not as interesting or engaging as the text. For someone who wants a factual overview of this topic, this would be a fun intro.

      Meh, I expected more aliens.

    • nonfiction, b&w overview of the top secret aircraft projects developed at Area 51.

    • 3.5

    • A very detailed account of what has happened at Area 51. B&W illustrations. Not at all what I expected.

    • *I received a free digital copy of this book from Edelweiss.Not for me. if you like detailed descriptions of all kinds of aircraft, this book is for you.
