'Civil War Adventure: Book Two' by Chuck Dixon and Gary Kwapisz continues the series of illustrated real life and fictional accounts of the civil war.
The book starts with a map of America in 1860. Then there is a timeline of the war with the stories put in the timeline when they take place. We meet a soldier so dedicated to his cannon that he has named it, but that may be his undoing. We get more of the continuing adventures of Ty and Seth, a couple of Union soldiers under Stonewall Jackson. Brigadier General Custer faces off against John Singleton Mosby, aka the Gray Ghost. There are more stories too.
The art is in black and white, but it fits really well. I also like the mix of true stories with ones written by the authors. The mix also gives it a nice anthology feel, with different types of stories and moods. I enjoyed the first volume and this one was just as good.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Dover Publications and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
