Turn back the clock with History Comics! In the latest volume of this nonfiction series, experience the Stonewall Riots alongside iconic activists like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera.

Following the success of Science Comics, First Second is launching a new nonfiction series: History Comics! These page-turning and gorgeously illustrated graphic novels allow you to experience history like never before!

In this volume, three teenagers—Natalia, Jax, and Rashad—are magically transported from their modern lives to the legendary Stonewall Inn in the summer of 1969. Escorted by Natalia's eccentric abuela (and her pet cockatiel, Rocky), the friends experience the police raid firsthand and are thrown into the infamous riots that made the struggle for LGBTQ rights front-page news.
