"The Loxleys and the War of 1812 is not the first comic to blend history, education and adventure, but it is by far the best that I have ever encountered."

Dr Chris Murray, Lecturer in Comics Studies, University of Dundee

"I am thrilled to see such impressive levels of quality employed in enabling others to relive important history. Entertaining and educational, this book deserves awards. But more than that, it deserves to be read."

Aaron: To pack my belongings. I’m off to fight the Americans.

Eliza: Aaron Loxley! You lost your own father in a war. Will you put your children through the same misery?

Matthew: It is absurd! How can you even think of fighting our neighbors across the Niagara? We trade with them each week. They are our friends!

William: Is Matthew not right, father? What difference does it make whether we are ruled by a King or a President? We farm the land, whoever rules us.
