Alamo: The Comic Book

    (Antarctic, 2004)

The term "hero" comes up frequently in comic books and in life, but true stories of heroism like this one suggest that it is often used too casually. This one-shot faithfully chronicles the historic battle in which nearly 200 Americans became heroes, sacrificing their lives defending the Alamo against a vast Mexican army. Jim Bowie, William Travis, David Crockett, and their followers might not have emerged triumphant, but the memory of their battle at a Texas fort lives on.

Rod Espinosa's respectful text and illustrations tell a tale whose details will be unfamiliar to many, but whose significance to American history should be apparent even into today.
