Kelly L. Swann enjoys trying to bring history to life through comics.

She's loved to draw since she can remember and strives to tell stories honestly and in an interesting way, whether they're biographies or historical fiction, or even just a comedic panel.  Cartooning, Kelly has found, is a wonderful way to weave images with words, allowing readers to journey through a story at their own pace.  What better way to attempt to make history feel present? 


Kilroy was Here will be a twenty-volume comic following a puppy for a year during WWII as he meets everyone from an American nurse to a German pilot, from a Canadian motorcycle messenger to an Italian monk.
