Book signing: District Comics: An Unconventional History of Washington, D.C.
D.C. doesn't want for its own historical documentation. Not only does it have more daily chroniclers than any other city in the country (save, perhaps, for New York), but it's also been fictionalized (George Pelecanos), turned into a video game (Fallout 3), and rendered comprehensible by more documentaries than we can count. But that's not the end of it. District Comics: An Unconventional History of Washington, DC, released earlier this year, tells Washington's story yet again, this time in graphic novel form. The ink work of several of the city's luminaries is on display in this anthology, from Harvey Award-nominee Scott O. Brown, to Feynman creator Jim Ottaviani. The breadth of talent also means a breadth of historical stories: From D.C.'s origins as a swampy settlement, to its short-lived role as the punkest place on the planet.
