If you spend anytime online, sooner or later you’re going to come across boingboing.net, one of the web’s best and widest read sites, which covers everything fantastic or interesting.

Today, editor Cory Doctorow reviewed Stan Mack’s book, Taxes, The Tea Party, and Those Revolting Rebels: A History in Comics of the American Revolution, much to our delight.

Here’s some excerpts of what he had to say:

“Mack’s history of the American revolution is simultaneously breeze and accessible — drawn and told in the style of wicked editorial cartoons — and a deep look at the conflicting motives, attitudes, and narratives of all the parties to the American War of Independence.

The truth is a lot grimier, a lot more tangled, and a lot more interesting. 

This humanized account of the dawn of the American project is a beautiful piece of work, and a strong tonic against the whitewash of history. “
