MARTHA WASHINGTON created by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons.
First published in 1990 by Dark Horse Comics, the graphic novel Give Me Liberty introduced the black female protagonist Martha Washington. Set in a dystopic future-Chicago, Martha rises up from the horrible conditions in the now demolished Cabrini-Green housing project to become an American hero. Give Me Liberty spawned three sequels and is available as an all-inclusive ‘omnibus’ edition. -John Jennings
