Kyle Baker is one of America’s best and funniest independent cartoonists. His series “The Bakers,” about the exploits of his family, is an all-ages classic, and his just-released book, How to Draw Stupid, is as useful a guide as any comics artist could hope for. But there’s a a serious side to Baker, too, as his Eisner Award–winning series “Nat Turner” proves. Collected for the first time, this brilliantly drawn, starkly told history of a legendary slave rebellion is out this month from Abrams. This week on the Comics Page, we’re proud to present an exclusive fifteen-page preview from Nat Turner.
