Jason Rodriguez says of Colonial Comics: New England, 1620 – 1750, in his interview with theComics DC blog:
want to create a book that functions as both entertainment and
education. The main idea is to tell stories that you often don’t find in
school history books that can, in turn, lead into larger discussions
about colonial American history […] What I want to do is fill in those
gaps and tell stories about the Native Americans and women and
free-thinkers and slaves and business owners who came to the Colonies
and give a better understanding of what life was like over our first
150+ years, the good and the bad.”
