What if everything you’ve ever learned about History was only half-truths, distorted facts and spectacularly biased? What if the great heroes of history (Jefferson, Lincoln, Zabrowski), were really a few fries short of a Happy Meal? What if these troubling accusations were true? - and they most likely are - then you’d be pleasantly shocked with this first collection of ALMOST OFF THE RECORD history comics. Filling-in where the misguided, subtly impersonal and humor-devoid history books leave off, “Let’s Take A Vote” takes you on an unauthorized journey into the archives of history - revealing that the history books left-out all the good stuff! Reading like a "Far Side" comic on history steroids, Ben Fortson’s history comic fills-in the gaps we've all wanted to know - “Did the Puritans ever take a vacation?; Why was Louis the Fat called 'Louis the Fat'?; Did Vladimir the Great really build poorly insulated palaces?; Why did the Vikings negotiate with their Amish neighbors?" Compelling questions, with the unbiased answers only to be found in “Let’s Take A Vote.” A perfect read for anyone who loves history (or hates history), enjoys a good story and lives for a random laugh, this collection not only elucidates, it actually teaches history. Very clever, indeed.
