Booth : The United States has become violently polarized. Political fanaticism divides an embittered populace across state lines as well as by race and class. A recently elected president - an energizing symbol of change for some, and a harbinger of the downfall of America for others - stands at the center of the turmoil. It is 1865, and John Wilkes Booth is about to assassinate the President of the United States. From the pen of American historian, C.C. Colbert and the brush of French comics master Tanitoc comes a unique and thought-provoking perspective on one of the greatest villains of U.S. History. "Booth," a fictionalized account of the life of a surprisingly complex anti-hero, pairs unflinching artwork with an audacious take on the history of the first American presidential assassination.
