More About the Author

Chris Schweizer (b. 1980) writes and draws stories. His first book, Crogan's Vengeance, is a pirate story and was completed while he was in graduate school, studying Sequential Art at the Atlanta campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design. The book earned Chris his first Eisner Award nomination and likely helped him earn a place on the faculty of the same school, where he taught for five years before deciding to hang up his professor hat and create books full-time. He now lives in Nashville, TN with his wife and daughter.

Chris is the creator of The Crogan Adventures graphic novels, a historical fiction series that recounts the exploits of the various members of the fictitious Crogan family over the last three hundred years. The third book, Crogan's Loyalty, also received an Eisner Award nomination.

In addition the the Crogan stories, Chris is the author (but not the illustrator) of the Tricky Journeys series, a pick-the-ending set of early reader books based on folklore from around the worlds, and wrote and drew the Adventure Time story "The Princess of Rad Hats," in which Finn reluctantly becomes a princess. In addition to books, he does character, prop, and environment design for animation.

Format: Hardcover
Most historians talk about the Civil War being the war that pit brother vs. brother, but most also fail to forget that not everyone living in the English Colonies during the 1770s wanted independence from Britain. Crogan's Loyalty explores the concept of sibling rivalry and sworn duties by telling the tale of two of the Crogan family brothers on either side of the American Revolution. Chris Schweizer takes his storytelling and art to another level in this book. He brings the story through life with his gorgeous environments, his extreme characters, and a political debate that is reminiscent of any multigenerational family.
Schweizer starts as usual in this book with a story about the modern day Crogan family. This time it's the Dad that's learning his lesson about sibling rivalry. The family is on the way to Grandpa's funeral and to see the brother Dad hasn't seen in nearly a decade due to some financial troubles that almost cost the family their house. Dad and brother haven't talked since. In the car, on the way to the funeral the Dad, as per usual, tells a story relevant to the current situation. Dad tells the story of the two ancestors that fought against each other during the Revolutionary War. The story is wrought with rivalries over women, duty, responsibility, what it is to be a brother, and more importantly, what it means to be men. The story is capped off by the family arriving at the funeral home and Dad walking over to talk to his brother (seen only in shadow and silhouette) and simply saying. "hi." A poignant ending to a touching, familial story.
Crogan's Loyalty made me rethink not only American History, but what it means to have responsibility, be a brother, and a father. It made me think about the relationships I have with my own family and how I can make them better. Overall, it's the best of the current Crogan's Adventures, and the first was nominated for an Eisner. This book is well worth it's weight in paper.

This third book in the Crogan series find two Crogan brothers serving on opposite sides during the Revolutionary War. Charles is loyal to the king and fighting for the British, and hot-headed William is fighting for the Patriots. A chance meeting in the woods between the two brothers and tempers flare as they argue over who is right. But a tragedy forces the two to join together and discover that perhaps family is more important than politics.

This is my first journey into the Crogan series and wow...I'm blown away by the story being told in this volume. Often when we're taught about brother against brother war in America we only think of the Civil War, not the Revolutionary war. And yet that is the angle this great little story takes. The author focuses on the aspects that history textbooks often gloss over--that it could be brother against brother, that there were people that had no desire to fight in the war, that the British and their troops weren't necessarily evil. And most importantly that this wasn't a war of good against bad, it was war of two different opinions and sides. This is a perfect introduction for a younger reader into the Revolutionary War and would be a great addition for a college history class to read as well and to consider some of these other aspects of the war.

The artwork really reminds me a lot of Jeff Smith's work in Bone, with the same wide brush strokes used to capture the characters and the background so effortlessly. I especially like the scenes of Will talking to Mr. Dockery about courting Bess. They capture the characters and the feelings of the scenes perfectly.

This is a great book and I can't wait to see what story Chris comes up with next.

Format: Hardcover
Being born and raised in the Boston area and having attended a school that dates back to before the Revolutionary War, one gets a very set, very pro-patriot view of that conflict from an early age. "Loyalty," however, gave me a fresh look at what the war meant to the people on both sides of the fight. The story is well paced, and the author strikes a nice balance between the action scenes and the personal moments.

The supporting cast in this one are stand outs, especially Bess, who is my new favorite amongst the many leaves of the Crogan Family Tree, and Captain Unterbrusch, who I found to be such an interesting character that I have my fingers crossed that the author will someday tell his story or at least have him make another appearance during this series.

I have enjoyed all the Crogan Family Adventures, but I count this one as my favorite. One of the reasons I feel this way is that in "Loyalty," the story the author tells about the modern Crogan family brothers that book ends the historical tale is just as interesting and moving as that of their ancestors.

Format: Hardcover
Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

I love this series! The third book continues on in the manner we have come to expect. Wonderful, touching story, insightful and thought provoking with plenty of action and some humour as well. The black & white illustrations fit the story nicely and I enjoy the artwork. The books follow no common storyline so reading order is really of no importance and they skip around through time. As usual the book opens with the modern day Crogan family having a little incident and the father finding time to tell his two sons about a male Crogan ancestor to illustrate a point similar to the conflict going on with the boys' lives today. This is a story of brothers disagreeing, but how it all boils down in the end to the old saying that "blood is thicker than water."

This being a story of the American Revolution, I was prepared for the Loyalist brother to be the bad guy along with the British army, but was pleasantly surprised to find that both sides of the story were told here without bias. Why each brother chose the side they did was explored and neither one was shown as "wrong" in any sense, nor were the British portrayed as "bad guys". The book focused mostly on the brothers and portrayed the other soldiers/officers as people with good and bad characteristics, reminding us that all soldiers in war are underneath the uniform, just ordinary folks whichever "side" they are on. The only fault I would mention is that this volume did not have as much derring-do as the previous two volumes, there was some, but not quite on par with the first ones. Otherwise, a great, and unique, presentation on the beginnings of the Revolutionary War and mightily enjoyed by this Canadian who just happens to live in the heart Loyalist Country
