Turn back the clock with History Comics! This debut volume of First Second's new nonfiction series introduces readers to America's first mystery, the disappearance of the Roanoke Colony.
Following the success of Science Comics, First Second is launching a new nonfiction series: History Comics! Travel back in time to the launchpad at Cape Canaveral, the deserts of the American southwest, the riots at the Stonewall Inn, and beyond! With History Comics, the past comes alive in a way that's edifying, entertaining, and relevant to our modern lives.
In this volume, turn back the clock to 1580, a century before the Pilgrims when the first English settlers established a colony on Roanoke Island. However, they weren’t there for long. Mysteriously, the inhabitants abandoned their homes and disappeared without a trace. Can you separate the facts from fiction? Can you solve a mystery filled with brutal battles, perilous pirate ships, ruthless queens, and enough skeletons to fill a graveyard?
