At right are two pages I particularly like from our historical graphic novel FIGHT FOR FREEDOM—the one on the left features my favorite character, Zeke (in the purple jacket), an African-American newspaper reporter based on a real-life guy. At right is an action-packed scene from the (historically possible) fictional battle we created for the book. Civil War buffs know the real battles so well, who was wounded, what their rank was and where they were shot, that it would have been impossible to squeeze in our fictional heroes.
