Here’s my chat with Josh Rosen about his graphic novel History Comics: World World II: Fight on the Home Front
Josh Rosen is a Toronto-based cartoonist and illustrator. A graduate of the Center for Cartoon Studies, Josh has done illustration work for magazines, animation projects, tabletop roleplaying games, as well as a slew of small-press comics work. His first graphic novel, The Good Fight, with author Ted Staunton, was long-listed for the Toronto Book Awards. His second graphic novel, History Comics: World War II, with author Kate Hannigan, is now available.
History Comics: World World II: Fight on the Home Front tells the story about “how millions of Americans joined the fight by working assembly lines, growing vegetables, and collecting scrap metal during World War II. When we think of war, we often focus on the battlefields. But during the war years of 1941 to 1945, Americans at home did whatever they could to support the troops and defeat the Nazis. While millions of soldiers ship out to fight on battlefronts in Europe and the Pacific, millions of men, women, and children step into new and exciting roles in cities and towns all across the United States. Four curious kids take us into factories, farms, and even kitchens to show what the fight on the home front looks like up close.”
