Bring Your Teacher Something Cool for the Apple

Chester’s adventures now fit in your pocket! You can read your favorite crab’s hysterical history on your iPhone, iTouch or iPad mobile devices by clicking these links to Apple’s iTunes store. Each story is a different app that adds new detail, more drawings, and reliable source information to what Chester has told you before in the print version of these stories.

For example, “The Battle of Britain” is one of four chapters in Chester’s “World War 2 Tales” comic, but this “Battle of Britain” story app has twice the number of panels as that printed version of the story! You will see more scenes from the fight that saved Britain from Hitler’s war machine, and you can click through to web sites that will give you important background to the story.

Chester Apps

The Battle of Britain on Itunes In 1940, only one nation stood against Adolf Hitler’s German war machine — BRITAIN! The 70th anniversary of that battle is a great time to download Chester’s new details about how the British escaped at Dunkirk and then used radar to intercept the bombers that tried to reduce London to rubble!

The Battle of Antietam on Itunes In print, Chester packs a lot into the telling of the bloodiest day in American history. In this story app about the Civil War battle, there is more space to explore why the Confederate and Union armies clashed in Maryland and how General Robert E. Lee’s fortunes rose and fell during September 1862. View this comic in the app store! Find Chestercomix on the iTunes App Store
Freedom's Fury: Harriet Tubman on Itunes You know about Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery on the “Underground Railroad,” but did you know she caused a riot in upstate New York just before the Civil War? Read Chester’s new scenes in the life of this American patriot and learn details such as what season of the year she liked to return to the South to help others escape slavery!
