A graphic novel biography of the American legend who inspired the hit Broadway musical Hamilton.
Alexander Hamilton was one of the most influential figures in United States history—he fought in the Revolutionary War, helped develop the Constitution, and as the first Secretary of the Treasury established landmark economic policy that we still use today. Cut down by a bullet from political rival Aaron Burr, Hamilton has since been immortalized alongside other Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson—his likeness even appears on the ten-dollar bill. In this fully-illustrated and impeccably researched graphic novel-style history, author Jonathan Hennessey and comic book illustrator Justin Greenwood bring Alexander Hamilton’s world to life, telling the story of this improbable hero who helped shape the United States of America.
JONATHAN HENNESSEY is the author of three previous nonfiction graphic novels, The United States Constitution, The Gettysburg Address, The Comic Book Story of Beer, and The Comic Book Story of Video Games. He is also the writer of the history-based time travel series Epochalypse. Based in Los Angeles, he works in film and television. JU...
