Jack Jackson loved American history and creating comics. He combined these into a single vocation and created an unparalleled legacy of historical graphic novels. Los Tejanos is the story of the Texas-Mexican conflict, as seen through the eyes of Juan Segu­n, a Texan of Mexican descent. A pivotal and tragic figure, through him Jackson humanises this vast and complex story of war. Lost Cause deals with post-civil-war reconstruction. The tensions caused during this violent time are told through the Taylor-Sutton feud, which raged across South Texas.

jack Jackson does a remarkable job of researching history of the Borderlands and visually recounting stories that have become submerged in the politically-though-not-historically-correct history of Texas. His portrayal of Juan Seguin's struggles makes the reader wonder what other Tejanos have been unjustly demonized. Undeterred by the "warts and all" aspect of the Nineteenth Century, Jackson's revelations of the hardships of the Reconstruction years is particularly adept.
The book also contains "Lost Cause" which is comprised of "John Wesley Hardin", "The Taylor-Sutton Feud" and "Reconstruction Texas". Jack Jackson had a very unique ability to transform dusty, antique history into a living (and sometimes offensive) breathing entity.
