From the Sibert Honor–winning creator behind The UnwantedandDrowned City comes a graphic novel of one of the darkest episodes in American history: the Spanish Influenza epidemic of 1918.
New Year’s Day, 1918. America has declared war on Germany and is gathering troops to fight. But there’s something coming that is deadlier than any war.

With a journalist’s discerning eye for facts and an artist’s instinct for true emotion, Sibert Honor recipient Don Brown sets out to answer these questions and more inFever Year.
