District Comics is a graphic anthology featuring lesser-known stories about Washington, DC, from its earliest days as a rustic settlement along the swampy banks of the Potomac to the modern-day metropolis.

  • Scott O. Brown, award-winning man of comics and Harvey Award nominee
  • Chad Lambert, five-time Howard E. Day Memorial Prize finalist and writer for Kung Fu Panda and Megamind
  • Jim Ottaviani, creator of The New York Times bestseller Feynman
