Here is part one of the completed, edited, fully ready-to-draw script that I wrote about John Brown’s attack on Harper’s Ferry, the incident that (more-or-less) triggered the Civil War (in the parts of the country that were not already at war). I started this in April or May of 2013 and put the final touches on the edits this week.


One of the things that I’m trying to do with this script is to work out the technical problems of comic book scripting and arrive upon a format that actually works to convey these stories. So if you have any interesting observations about the format, please let me know.

Anyway, here’s part one. It was necessary for the story to start at a slow burn, so I tried to make it like sitting and watching a forest fire.

The American slave system was very, very bad indeed. I think the only way to convey the extent of the devastation is through fiction. It’s not as simple as people getting whipped in fields. It was an entire cursed way of life.
