"Who Was the First Man on the Moon? does an excellent job of integrating events from Armstrong’s childhood into the vintage-style artwork and vivid descriptions of his famous Apollo 11 space flight...All the [Who HQ Graphic Novels] showcase the passions and urgency or risks behind their headline-making events and humanize the people who made them possible." -- Booklist, starred review
