Let’s take a trip back in time to ancient Rome. This graphic novel was written and illustrated in order to educate readers about the second Punic war and highlight Hannibal Barca. The 9 panel layout was chosen to make reading the graphic novel easy. A painterly brush style with line-art was chosen to give the comic a unique and personalized flow. The characters are drawn in a fun, cartoony way to make learning about the fascinating history of the second Punic war more enjoyable.
