A 10-year veteran of the film and television production industry, Jonathan Hennessey is a Los Angeles-based writer. His first graphic work was “Synchroni-City,” and his upcoming work is “The Comic Book Story of Beer.” Hennessey is also the author of “The United States Constitution: A Graphic Adaptation,” on which he collaborated with illustrator Aaron McConnell. In their newest work, “The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation” (William Morrow/HarperCollins), the duo commemorate the 150th anniversary of this pivotal battle of the Civil War and use Lincoln’s address to tell the whole story of the war.
