Hi,

So I just left Korea and when I did I forgot a couple of graphic novels about Western History that was made in Korea. I had one about Napoleon, and one about Hannibal's war on Rome.

If you've been a teaching to any kids you have had to seen kids reading tis material.

Anyway, what I want to know if anyone knows how I can buy them in America, or at least the name (and contact?) of the publishers or studios?

Thanks!

Are they by Rhie Won-bok?

Here's a list, in Korean:

He hasn't been well-received by many expat and American readers:

No, his books are aimed for elementary students by his art style.

I'm looking for middle school or higher.

I saw one about Napoleon and I can't find it now.
