An Unconventional Graphic History of DC

Denver, CO (8/20/2012)--What would the history of our capital city sound like from the perspective of a Vietnam veteran or the trumpeter at JFK's burial? A collection of many such perspectives, District Comics: An Unconventional History of Washington, DC features a cast of the citys most captivating and colorful characters--from printers and police officers to pandas and punks. And, of course, a few politicians.

This recently released graphic anthology tours some of DCs lesser-known moments, with stops along the way for a duel, a drink in the Senate speakeasy, a shoe shine, and much more. Inspired by the kind of quirky stories that are only discovered in conversations with locals and longtime residents, District Comics includes more than twenty stories you might otherwise never hear. 

Illustrated and authored by forty talented contributors, the anthology features stories by Scott O. Brown, award-winning Man of Comics and Harvey nominee; Chad Lambert, five-time Howard E. Day Memorial Award finalist and writer for Kung Fu Panda and Megamind; Jim Ottaviani, creator of The New York Times best seller Feynman; and many more talented writers and artists.

Matt Dembicki is the founder of the D.C. Conspiracy, a comic creators collaborative in Washington, DC. Hes the editor of the Eisner-nominated and Aesop Prize-winning Trickster: Native American Tales, A Graphic Anthology and has also won acclaim for his nature graphic novels, Mr. Big and Xoc.
