A great comic often does a lot more than entertain – it educates!

This week, I interview Mark Zuehlke, a historian who has scripted The Loxleys and Confederation, a great comic from Renegade Arts Entertainment that discusses how Canada was formed and what influence the United States played in that creation. This book is the sequel to The Loxleys and The War of 1812, another great historical graphic novel that taught me a lot about that war and its aftermath. We follow a family whose existence parallels the formation of Confederation, and provides us with a human perspective on this important period in Canadian history. Mark talks about what it took to bring this volume together as well as things we’ll discover in the book as well as what the future might hold for this important family.

Stay tuned to their website to pre-order this graphic novel and learn more about it as its release date draws near! It’s a great comic that can teach us in the U.S. a lot about our neighbors to the north, so don’t miss it!
