Jackson is one of the original figures of the American underground comics movement of the 1960s Unlike his peers, whose comics celebrated the counterculture, Jackson instead created lively, detailed and historically accurate works that chronicle the bloody, fascinating history around the founding of Texas Told against a rich backdrop of 19th century life and the complex historical and political conflicts that fueled the brutal wars between Native Americans and settlers, the story of Naduah the white Comanche represents non fiction comics at its best.
