THE CARGO REBELLION is a stunning graphic narrative that tells a true story of mutiny on the high seas in which 400 indentured Chinese men overthrew their captor, the Connecticut businessman and slave trader Leslie Bryson, taking a stand against an exploitative global enterprise. Michael Barson, Senior Publicity Executive at Melville House, talked with the creative team behind the book --- writers Jason Chang, Benjamin Barson and Alexis Dudden, and illustrator Kim Inthavong --- about how this project was conceived, the extensive research they conducted, and what they hope readers will take away from this eye-opening book.
