"As a kid, Kyle Baker was obsessed with comic books and built a career in kids’ animation working on shows like Looney Tunes and Rugrats. Baker’s new book, NAT TURNER, is the furthest thing fr kid stuff. It’s a graphic retelling of the violent 1831 slave rebellion in Virginia. Drawn in black and white and shades of grey, Baker depicts the historic revolt with a vivid, pulpy intensity. Baker tells Kurt (Andersen) how he ended up telling this story.”
