Stan’s book, will premiere this week at San Diego Comic-Con, and we’ve already got an early review and fantastic interview with Stan already!
Stan Mack’s Taxes, The Tea Party, and those Revolting Rebels brings Mack’s keen eye and ability to blend the everyday and the profound to the story of the American Revolution. Originally published in 1994 as Stan Mack’s Real Life American Revolution (a shout-out to his long-running Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies), it has been updated and is as fresh today as it was back then. Mack has done his homework, so this is not a retread of the standard story; he brings a new perspective and a lot of hey-I-didn’t-know-that facts to the history we all thought we knew.
Stan also spoke with Imprint, a magazine focusing on art and design, about the book and providing a pretty good reason to check it out.
“If you read my book, you will no longer have to swallow what the right or the left tells you about the Constitution, the Founding Fathers, and the Bill of Rights. You can swallow your own conclusions.”
