"The story begins in the squalied corridors of a maximum-security housing project, where a young girl will rise from the war-torn streets of Chicago to battle injustice in a world insane with corruption. Her fight will take her far: from the front lines of the second American Civil War, to the cold, unforgiving reaches of space. She will be called a hero, a traitor, and nearly everything in between, but all along the way, her courage, her integrity, and her unwavering commitment to that most valuable of rights-- liberty-- will inspire a movement that will never surrender"--P. [4] of cover.
From the Publisher:
From a maximum-security housing project, a young girl rises from the war-torn streets of Chicago to battle injustice, taking her to the front lines of the second American Civil War and outer space.
Annotation:
Comics masters Dave Gibbons (WATCHMEN) and Frank Miller (SIN CITY) collaborated off-and-on for two decades telling the GIVE ME LIBERTY stories. Now these stories--plus related sagas--are collected in a gorgeous over-size volume. Martha Washington is a 21st-century freedom fighter from the rough Chicago Cabrini Green project who enlists in the US Army. She is a complicated and multi-faceted heroine who will find herself in the midst of battles domestic, foreign, and interstellar. She is a captivating character, her adventures are hand-clenching, and Miller and Gibbons waste no breath in expressing a strident condemnation of our political system / military-industrial complex.

Praise

"A giant, heavy, high-quality book, it is made for a lazy afternoon on the sofa or the carpet, devouring the whole Martha Washington canon (along with sketches, notes and other assorted nice bits). It'd be a fine (and potentially life-changing -- see above) gift, and makes for a very satisfying indulgence, too." - Cory Doctorow 10/29/2009
