Just in time for the Fourth of July! A masterpiece nearly twenty years in the making, this archival volume contains the complete life story of Martha Washington, the twenty-first century freedom fighter created by comic-book megastars Frank Miller (Sin City, 300) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), now in a more affordable softcover edition. Our story begins in the squalid 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 frontlines 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.

In 1990, Miller, the writer-artist of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, and Gibbons, the artist of Watchmen (the two most acclaimed and influential comics of the 1980s, which led to a tide of super antiheroes), created a full-fledged hero in the form of female warrior Martha Washington. Set in a farcically dystopian near future, the tale followed its heroine from her childhood in the Chicago projects through her rise in the military, serving a nation that’s not only at war with 40 other countries but is soon roiled by secession. Miller expands upon the absurdist genre trappings that distinguished his Dark Knight series but consistently treats Washington with an admiring dignity, and Gibbons’ artwork limns her exploits with clarity and verve. The pair returned to the character repeatedly over the following decade, with her exploits growing ever more outlandish, eventually leading her to save the entire planet before heading to the far reaches of outer space. The presumably complete saga is collected in this massive volume, which is sure to be greeted enthusiastically by the creators’ many fans. --Gordon Flagg
