The last work produced by the late Jack Jackson, an eminent historian as well as an illustrator. Jackson, who died in June 2006, nurtured his interest in Texas history as a schoolboy when he read the classic Texas History Movies comic strips. He disliked their cultural biases and racial stereotyping but understood their popular appeal and the narrative power of the comic strip. Jackson, who is considered the father of Underground Comics, long wanted to recreate the comic strip as he envisioned it, fair and balanced, but in the realistic manner that depicted the times. Includes a history of Texas History Movies. This is a great final testament to Jackson’s talent. He will be dearly missed. Austin, 2007 Texas State Historical Association 1st Ed., 48 Pgs., PB.
