Praise

“. . . a timely portrait of the famous and controversial Alexander Hamilton.”
 —Library Journal

“For fans of the stage show who are looking to dive deeper into the real history that inspired it, Alexander Hamilton: The Graphic History Of An American Founding Father is just what you need on your TBR.”
 Bustle

Advance praise for Alexander Hamilton:

“Yo, yo, yo, check out this book
It’s amazing and cool and has a baller look.
Get on down to an LCS in your neighborhood
Have your mind blown by Hennessey / Greenwood.
This ain’t no U.S. propaganda 
It’s the best Hamilton since L.M. Miranda.”
 —Marc Guggenheim, co-creator of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, screenwriter, producer, and comic book writer

“Cramming an entire life into a single graphic novel—especially a life as full as Hamilton’s—is no mean feat, but Hennessey is up to the task. Greenwood’s engaging art, aided by Simpson’s color, brings the pages to life with a vibrant energy.”
—Antony Johnston, writer of Atomic Blonde, The Fuse, and Julius

“This book needs to be in schools and on your shelves. Hennessey knows his Hamilton history and Greenwood’s art has a pulse that makes the founder’s story as compelling for comics as it is for great theatre.”
 —Jeff Parker, writer of Future Quest and Batman ‘66
