Publisher Comments:

The story of Nat Turner and his slave rebellionand#151;which began on August 21, 1831, in Southampton County, Virginiaand#151;is known among school children and adults. To some he is a hero, a symbol of Black resistance and a precursor to the civil rights movement; to others he is monsterand#151;a murderer whose name is never uttered.

In Nat Turner, acclaimed author and illustrator Kyle Baker depicts the evils of slavery in this moving and historically accurate story of Nat Turnerand#8217;s slave rebellion. Told nearly wordlessly, every image resonates with the reader as the brutal story unfolds.

This graphic novel collects all four issues of Kyle Bakerand#8217;s critically acclaimed miniseries together for the first time in hardcover and paperback. The book also includes a new afterword by Baker.
