Turn back the clock with HistoryComics! Following the success of ScienceComics, First Second is launching a new nonfiction series: HistoryComics! Travel back in time to the launchpad at Cape Canaveral, the deserts of the American southwest, the riot at the Stonewall Inn, and beyond! The past comes alive in a way that's edifying, entertaining, and relevant to our modern lives. In the debut this volume, turn the clock back to 1871. Red-hot embers swirl on a dry prairie wind, igniting a blaze that will engulf Chicago for two terrifying days. As a young brother and sister rescue a helpless puppy, they race to stay one step ahead of the devilish inferno and reunite with their lost families. With downtown reduced to a charred skeleton of itself, how will the once-proud city ever rebuild? Available in softcover and hardcover editions.
