Synopsis

Crogan's Loyalty by Chris Schweizer, Chris Schweizer

Schweizer's limber figures and quick jabs of slapstick goofing give this graphic novel a deceptively light veneer, even as life-and-death matters are unfolding. It's no easy feat to combine a high-energy historical adventure with a smart and nuanced look at the many shades of gray that tint notions of patriotism, loyalty, and family ties, but Schweizer does just that. Educators looking to add an energizing bit of spice to discussions about the American Revolution should take notice. - Booklist (STARRED Schweizer once again tells a fantastic tale of heroism in a historic setting that evokes the time period, using the language of the time, which can be quite humorous (such as when Will asks Bess' dad if he can 'bundle' with her), and exploring complexities of the Revolutionary War that are seldom discussed. - School Library JournalThe fan-favorite graphic novel series from Eisner-nominated cartoonist Chris Schweizer returns with an all new adventure! Charles and William Crogan are two brothers with very different perspectives on family, country, and loyalty. Now they find themselves on opposite sides of the brewing conflict between colonial separatists and those still determined to serve the British Crown. Will their brotherhood be washed away in the bloodshed of the War or will their own ties endure?
