Zusammenfassung
Jack Jackson, who is credited with creating what many consider the first underground comic, God Nose, also cartooned a legacy of historical graphic novels that has never been equaled.

Jack Jackson was a Texan, and in the 1970s he began writing and drawing short historical comics about Texas history. He then went on to produce six graphic novels chronicling 19th century Western history focusing on his beloved Texas and the Plains Indians. Fantagraphics is proud to bring his graphic histories back into print in a series of three volumes, each reprinting two of his long narratives. The first volume features Los Tejanos, which Fantagraphics published as a solo book in 1981, and Lost Cause (1998) — chronicling Texas history before and after the Civil War. Los Tejanos is the story of the Texas-Mexican conflict between 1835 and 1875 as seen through the eyes of tejano Juan Seguín (literally a Texan of Mexican, as distinct from Anglo, heritage). It is through Seguín that Jackson humanizes Texas' fight for independence and provides a human scale for this vast and complex story. Lost Cause documents the violent reaction to Reconstruction by Texans. The tensions caused by Reconstruction are told through the Taylor-Sutton feud, which raged across South Texas, embracing two generations and causing untold grief, and the gunslinger John Wesley Hardin, who swept across Texas killing Carpetbaggers, Federal soldiers, and Indians.
