History Graphics Press was conceived in 2008 by two long time comic book professionals, Chuck Dixon and Gary Kwapisz, to publish entertaining, historically accurate graphic novels set against the background of American history. With the example of the old EC Comics in mind, they planned modern graphic novels that were character driven and using the best art and stories available to draw the reader into the history and make the past come to life.
Frustrated in their attempts to convince other publishers of their genius, they decided to publish their own books! (Thereby calling into question their genius!)
Civil War Adventures is their first book and the first in a series of graphic novels on the American Civil War about buy instagram followers.
Their future plans are to do more series exploring other aspects of American history.
History Graphics Press presents a new line of graphic novels that bring the past to life with exciting stories fully illustrated by top talents in comics storytelling.
Civil War Adventures is only the first in a line of volumes dedicated to America’s bloodiest conflict and defining hour. Each book will bring you stories of the men and women on both sides of the conflict and draw you into their world through dramatic stories of courage, sacrifice, tragedy and even comedy. The epic scale of the War Between the States is fully realized on page after page of sumptuously rendered sequential illustrations from some of the very best artists in the field.
Meticulously researched and supplemented with text material, maps and period pictures, these books provide a wealth of instruction and insight as well as hours of engaging entertainment. You’ll join the 5th Virginia as it marches toward its first conflict at Bull Run. You’ll ride along with George Custer as his fabled cavalry faces impossible odds. You’ll be a passenger on an armed riverboat as it drifts into range of waiting batteries along the Mississippi. These stories are designed to make real the everyday experiences of men and women caught up in the war that decided the fate of our nation.
For the Civil War novice or aficionado, these detailed stories bring you into the action and allow you to view the events in a new and exciting way. History Graphics Press is looking forward to future volumes that will explore the Civil War and many other aspects of American history in a way that is as thrilling as it is educational, buy instagram followers.
