TSHA member and author Jack Jackson has produced his third graph-
ic historical novel. Lost Cause is the story of the gunslinger John Wesley
Hardin, reputed to have killed twenty-three men in the violent era of Re-
construction Texas. Joseph Witek, author of Comics as History, says that
"an important part of what Jackson teaches his readers . .. is that history
is not simply the open book of the past but rather a story which requires
continual reinterpretation and thoughtful reexamination." Witek goes
on to say that Jackson's work "create [s] narratives which aim at expand-
ing both the historical consciousness of contemporary American culture
and the bounds of what is possible in the sequential art medium." Avail-
able at book and comic shops for $16.95. Or, contact Jamie Riehle at
