The Federal Reserve's roots trace back to Georgia’s Jekyll Island. It all started in November 1910, when  six men secretly convened at the Jekyll Island Club to reform the country's banking system. The participants did not admit that the meeting happened until the 1930s.

A new graphic novel takes us back to the early 20th century on Jekyll Island. Back then, the tiny Georgia island was a hot spot for some of the most powerful and wealthy individuals like William Rockefeller, Joseph Pulitzer, and Henry Ford. "The Jekyll Island Chronicles" blends historical fact with alternate history - all with the help of students from the Savannah College of Art and Design. We talk with co-author Ed Crowell and illustrator Moses Nester.
