9781561636976: Taxes, The Tea Party, and those Revolting Rebels : A Comics History of the American Revolution

Readers young and old alike will love this entertaining and timely comic book that offers a concise and accessible summary of the founding of the USA. With an uncanny relevance to modern American politics, contained within is the original revolt against taxes: the Boston Tea Party. That's also not to forget the original Occupy movement: the Rebels in revolt against the status quo. A whimsical and informative pictorial history featuring a chubby, insecure King George III, rebellious and misunderstood colonialists, loud-mouthed and insensitive aristocrats and more.

Review:

"A cartoonist de-mythologizes the Founding Fathers and makes them more like us." "New York Times""

"Delightfully illustrated in his distinctive minimalist cartoon style, Mack's first original book-length effort puts the 'real life' back into our revolutionary roots, providing capsule portraits of the prominent activists of the time, along with their many idiosyncrasies, comic flaws, and strategic bungling." "Publishers Weekly""

"Mack the populist does not write dispassionately." Harvey Pekar"

"A people's-eye view of history, an attempt to get beyond and behind the idealized accounts of the deeds of kings, generals, and heroes." "Houston Chronicle""

"Mack's loose cartoony art captures its loudly contentious cast without either mythologizing or condescending to them. Recommended reading for those of us who only hazily remember our public school history classes." "Seattle Post Intelligencer""

"This humanized account of the dawn of the American project is a beautiful piece of work, and a strong tonic against the whitewash of history. There's bravery in this history, and sacrifice, and cunning and resolve. But with the founders' failings and flaws on display, we can see that America's problems have been there since the start." www.BoingBoing.net"

"Mack's history of the American Revolution strikes just the right balance. It's packed with names, dates, places, and ideas, but they only come up when they're needed, as though Mack is giving an enthusiastic, on-the-fly lecture rather than laying out information to be memorized." "Teacher Librarian" (December 2012)"

"Accessible, thought-provoking, and highly discussable, this version of how the United States became independent of the British Crown may well inspire readers to see the relevant aspects of studying history as well as reading nonfiction comics." "School Library Journal "(November 2012)"
