Acclaimed cartoonist-author Stan Mack turns his humorously journalistic comics style on the events and characters of the American Revolution, creating a reader-friendly cartoon guide to the who, what, when, and why of the effort to end ties with Britain and create a new nation. Getting away from the simplistic all-patriotic takes, this graphic novel covers the battles, the arguments, and the very un-united set of people who somehow still managed to launch the United States. From the king to the commoners, the book uses a light, readable visual presentation for serious topics and real subtleties. Called “spectacular” by Publisher’s Weekly, given a starred review by Library Journal, and chosen as “New York Public Library Recommended Book” for teens, this lively graphic history demonstrates how the people and issues of a quarter of a millennium ago are not so different from those we deal with today, and how their impact is still felt.
