Alexander Hamilton: The Graphic History of an American Founding Father by Jonathan Hennessey & Justin Greenwood
Little description: 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.

My thoughts: 4 stars out of 5
The colors and every illustrations are rich and portray the deeper story, enriching the tale of the history of USA. I only chose this book for the pictures and was very pleased for the art work of Greenwood… He did a great job in conveying the story of Alexander Hamilton.
I didn’t care for the accuracy of the story itself, because the pictures made it more interesting and intriguing to just watch the book. I love the details and the techniques in shading and word placement. Maybe I am so mesmerized by the book because I have a dream to draw my own children book stories… But for now I watch, look and study.
