Don MacDonald’s “Machiavelli!”

Lucky Kickstarter contributors (like me) are getting their copies of our friend Don MacDonald’s gorgeous historical graphic novel, “Machiavelli.”   Those less lucky will have to wait awhile for hard copies of the book to be available — but in the  meantime it’s there for the taking at Comixology.

Colonial Comics a Geek Dad Favorite

Colonial Comics makes Geek Dad’s  list of Best Books of 2014!  “Comics and graphic novels are an extremely moving way to teach about history.

Bell & Joel Gill)  http://geekdad.com/2015/01/best-books-2014/
