John Hodgman re LEWIS& CLARK
“Nick Bertozzi’s comics do more than bring history to life: they
reanimate these long dead souls and make them human again. I would buy
this book just to see Thomas Jefferson tending the roses. But it’s
dark-locked Meriwether Lewis whom we truly see for the first time
through Bertozzi’s pen: brave, fallible, ambitious, funny, brilliant,
crude, transcendently ambitious, tragically mad all at once. Bertozzi
captures in pictures the epic grandeur and quiet desperation of the
Lewis and Clark expedition as no dumb book of prose ever could.”
