The past comes alive in this nonfiction graphic novel series from First Second! With History Comics, you can travel back in time to the launchpad at Cape Canaveral, the deserts of the American southwest, the riot at the Stonewall Inn, and beyond!
Like its sister series Science Comics, History Comics are lively and engaging graphic novels with manageable page counts that make history accessible to readers 9 to 12 years old and beyond, from curious history lovers to those who think (for now) that history is boring. And the focus isn’t only on the facts—History Comics also examine how we know what we know, and the ways that our ideas about these topics have changed over time, providing perfect conversation starters for classrooms and for readers ready to think beyond the timelines and info boxes.
History Comics brings top-notch writing, world-class illustration, and a discerning editorial eye to both famous and less well-known historical events. Make History Comics your time machine, and get ready to experience the past like never before!
