Product description

About the Author

Nadja has been a words-nerd all her life. She speaks English, German, Italian, and Spanish (with varying degrees of fluency), can teach Taekwondo classes in Korean, and is currently working on expanding her French vocabulary. Since receiving a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing with a minor in US History at the University of Minnesota, she has served as the office thesaurus, dictionary, translator, and spell-checker in every one of her day jobs. She wrote her first terrible novella at the age of eight, and is now focused on writing comics and novels for young adults. Her work can be seen for free in the online graphic novel, Impure Blood (www.impurebloodwebcomic.com), which is drawn by her soon-to-be husband, Nathan Lueth. Other illustrated projects she has scripted for Round Table include Everything's Okay (Sept 2011), Altucher Confidential (Dec 2011), Delivering Happiness (March 2012), and Influence: Science & Practice (July 2012). Aside from a love of a good story with pretty pictures, Nadja and Nathan share a house, a cat, a turtle, and a belief that more people should embrace their inner nerd --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

A breezy take on the past, but that s the point: to produce a comic that youngsters will actually be inclined to read, and perhaps even re-read. --The A.V. Club; March 2012, http: //www.avclub.com/articles/graphic-novels-artcomics-march-2012,70229/#comment-456898966

I highly recommend [The United States Constitution: A Round Table Comic Graphic Adaptation] to anyone interested in United States history, or to teachers or families wanting to teach kids about our government in an entertaining way. I will be using it with my own kids whenever we study United States history or U.S. Government. --Jenny Williams, Geek Dad; March 14, 2012 http: //www.wired.com/geekdad/2012/03/constitution-comics/

While the U.S. Constitution s primary value is as a document, it is also a historical artifact that embodies the fascinating story of its own creation. In this version, Baer and Lueth (who coauthor the online graphic novel Impure Blood) generously cover both aspects, and the core text (the first ten amendments are noted but the text is not provided) is intercut with the drama of a Constitutional Congress that actually drafted an innovative work despite personal prejudices, turf wars, the divisive slavery issue, and the searing heat of a 1780s Philadelphia summer. In a triumph of character design, Lueth has created distinct, memorable images for each of the many delegates who hacked through their Gordian knots as the summer dragged on. Hill & Wang s lengthier book of the same name includes all amendments and more background, but this volume dramatizes the compelling soap opera of egos that, against considerable odds, managed to create the imperfect yet sorely needed document that has endured for more than two centuries. VERDICT While context for some plot elements is not clear, this graphic novel dramatizes a historical precedent for group action despite disagreement that we should heed today. A free curriculum guide by Katie Monnin (Teaching Graphic Novels) is available. Recommended for tweens through adults in and out of the classroom. --Library Journal, May, 15, 2012

Whether you're a parent, a teacher, or an interested citizen, what if you could explain the Constitution and the disagreements that led to its crafting in about an hour? Round Table Companies, a publishing company, has done just that by assigning to a writer and an artist the challenge of creating a graphic adaptation to explain the writing of the United States Constitution and the effort the founding fathers exerted to ratify it.--Kate Kelly "Huffington Post, February 27, 2012 "

I highly recommend The United States Constitution: A Round Table Comic Graphic Adaptation to anyone interested in United States history, or to teachers or families wanting to teach kids about our government in an entertaining way. I will be using it with my own kids whenever we study United States history or U.S. Government.--Jenny Williams "Geek Dad, March 14, 2012 " --This text refers to the paperback edition.
