Overview

This second volume of the Colonial Comics trilogy is an artful look at what life was like in the Pre-Revolutionary period, and illustrates how the Revolutionary spirit spread to the common man and woman, one gorgeous comic story at a time
A massacre in Boston. A tea party. A shot heard around the world. But who was the first casualty of the massacre? How did the tea get to Boston Harbor? What was the Battle of Concord like for a Minute Man? Colonial Comics: New England, 1750–1775 expands the frame of this important period of American history. Unconventional characters come to life, including gravedigging medical students, counterfeiters, female playwrights, instigators of civil disobedience, newspaper editors, college students, rum traders, freemen, and slaves.

"We love the work that editor Jason Rodriguez and Colorado's Fulcrum Press are doing with this series. We hope the books inspire lots of comic-reading history buffs everywhere!" —American Antiquarian Society
