  Fulcrum Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Colonial Comics: New England, 1620 - 1750
Colonial Comics is a graphic trilogy featuring unconventional stories of Colonial New England from an eclectic collection of comics writers and artists, fiction and nonfiction authors, university professors, and renowned historians. This first graphic volume is a collection of 20 stories focusing on the colonial period from 1620 through 1750 in New England. Bringing to life the stories not found in history books, including tales of Puritans and free thinkers, Pequots and Jewish settlers, female business owners and dedicated school teachers, whales and livestock, slavery and frontiers, and many other untold aspects of colonial life.
Jason Rodriguez says of Colonial Comics: New England, 1620 – 1750, in his interview with the Comics DC blog:
“I 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.”
