It was really rather upsetting. Frank Miller is an American writer, artist and film director best known for his film noir-style comic book stories.

It was really rather upsetting. But "Martha Washington Goes to War" completely redeemed Martha (and Miller) in my mind. And now I think every girl - especially young black girls - should be required to read it before they When I finished "Give Me Liberty," Frank Miller's comics that started the story of Martha Washington, I didn't know what to think. He is one of the most widely-recognized and popular creators in comics, and is one of the most influential comics creators of his generation.

Book 2 of 3 in the Martha Washington Series. At last, Frank Miller has given us a comic book for all Americans and a hero who represents the real America. It's strange to think that a medium like action comics, that wastes so much of its energy trying to reinforce the stale values of an America that hasn't existed since the middle of the last century, could be such fertile ground. It has opened my eyes to the potential of comics to tell stories that have relevance to the modern world, not some lilly-white America that's been dead for decades. I would have to call this his best, most mature work to date.

Martha Washington is a fictional character created by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons, first appearing in the four-issue comic book series Give Me Liberty, published in 1990 by Dark Horse Comics. Born on March 11, 1995 and died on March 11, 2095, Martha Washington grew up in the Cabrini–Green housing project in Chicago (called "The Green") with her mother and two brothers in abject poverty brought on by the economic policies of the President Erwin Rexall.

Opilar
I got it for a penny so I can't really complain. It doesn't really dazzle like the rest of Frank Millers work but it wasn't atrocious.
Flash_back
First intro was in 1989 as a young'un(cheers Shane)with peach fuzz and reading it again brought it all flooding back. The storyline strength of characters made it so easy to submerge into the reality of Martha Washington world. Maybe I'm bias but I say 5 stars ???? Easy..????

When I stumbled upon this gem of ultra-cynicism, I thought for a moment that John Carpenter had got his hands on the Miller psyche'. Alas, no. What came out of this reading was such a complete skewering of Bigotry that the backwoods, context-skipping, agenda totting me-me-me creationists would practically bend over backwards to either look the other way or assassinate by character with the dreaded PC word. Wasn't this the dreaded semantics of hypocritical supremacy Miller that was cutting against? By the way, since when were names like FEMINAZI ever "PC".
Watch out for the Anti-Martha's who recommend books about Natural Selection( Darwins Black Box ) that they only heard about from other people who heard it misquoted by the ICR, and then try to bring it up in a review of a UBER-COMIC.
Anyway,this work illustrates how Miller's resurrection,( Sorry, no mythical-inference intended) led to the making of 4, count em'4 Batman movies. Now tell me Burton didn't have this kind of egala-mania in mind with "Batman Returns". Just admit it and give credit where it is due. This one will endure.

At last, Frank Miller has given us a comic book for all Americans and a hero who represents the real America. It's strange to think that a medium like action comics, that wastes so much of its energy trying to reinforce the stale values of an America that hasn't existed since the middle of the last century, could be such fertile ground.
It has opened my eyes to the potential of comics to tell stories that have relevance to the modern world, not some lilly-white America that's been dead for decades.

Buy it, or else!

This qulity comic novel which is heavily influenced by Ayn Rand'sATLAS SHRUGGED. Like Rand, Millersees the greatest threat to freedom not in obvious totalitarians but well meaningidealists who are incompetent or paternalistic or both.The fact that the heroes are minorities is irrelevant to the story and only a bigot or a moron would focus on that in discussing this work.

If you liked Miller's Dark Knight series, you probably won't like this one. In fact, unless you're into extreme political correctness, you won't like this one.
All the good guys are minorities. All the bad and dumb ones are white. And so on. This seems like an 180-degree reversal from his Batman books, which were somewhat negative on liberal issues (well, justice, at least).
But Miller obviously wanted it to be a work on par with Moore's "Watchmen" - why else waste Gibbon's talent on this book? Perhaps it was a catharsis, because it seems like a lot of venting - against Reagan, against white males, against evil phallic space stations, against ... well, enough said. Read "Watchmen" again instead. Or why waste time with comic books? Although Moore's stuff is always interesting, most comic-book philosophy is at the pop level. Sounds deep and attractively cynical ... until you delve. Read something serious. Recommendations: "Darwin's Black Box" (Behe), "Nature's Destiny" (Denton).

What can you say about the Martha Washington series but "BUY IT!".
