Frank Miller gets mainstream attention for stories that are not that exciting, thrilling and hot, but typical. In this book, you see imaginative story lines, characters, in fact a whole world depicted that is fresh and unusual and makes you think. I highly recommend this to anyone tired of the same cliches and stereotypes found in mainstream entertainment, particularly of black women.

Featuring overwrought themes of "social justice" and racism it feels like a weird time travel loop gone wrong from the present to the, not so long ago, past. Victims of oppression (in this case the focus is on Blacks and Native Americans) are tossed into battle against agents of oppression (namely evil multi-nations corporations, and don I have no idea what to think about this comic.

The story is set in a dystopian near-future where the United States have split into several extremist factions, and tells the story of Martha Washington, a young American girl from a public housing project called "The Green" (see Chicago's Cabrini–Green).

concluded that no one ought to be poor, and there was little tolerance for the able-bodied pauper. The only cause of such poverty, it was assumed, was individual weaknes. .However, if poverty and welfare policies are judged by their effectiveness in providing for the minimal needs of the poor while dramatically reducing poverty in a society over time, then America before 1965 could be said to have had the most successful welfare policy in world history. By the same benchmark, post-1965 poverty programs have failed.

If there's one thing noone will ever accuse Frank Miller of it's subtlety. While the satire has all of the nuanced grace of a sledge hammer to the face this is still a surprisingly powerful and always entertaining piece. It manages to balance the over the top aspects with genuine emotion thanks to an amazingly strong central character with Martha Washington. This blew my mind when I read it in my early teens, and while I recognize now it's not a very sophisticated piece it still stands strong.

This book is a Science fiction graphic novel by Frank Miller (batman:DK; sin city) with art by Dave Gibbons (watchmen).It takes place in the future. Martha is the main character. GIVE ME LIBERTY is the first graphic novel in a trilogy which can now be found at barnes and noble in one large volume. This series is for those that enjoy a good action packed political satire.

I read this graphic novel near the time it first appeared and lost it in several moves. I decided to rekindle my reminiscences of this work and rediscovered and newly discovered some things that I missed. I missed some subtleties like how she signed up and the witty progression of the first president to a robot body with a brain. In looking back Frank Miller was quite prescient about a Martha Washington military type. Though symbolic the inaugural ball of President Obama danced with an African-American soldier, young, with short cropped hair, close to power as the Martha Washington character. I also vaguely remember a similar series in a UK graphic novel offering similar themes of a food conglomerate with a motley crew including a female of African Descent. Anybody in Amazon Land know what that series was entitled? I haven't completed the Martha Washington series yet, but will.

Frank Miller gets mainstream attention for stories that are not that exciting, thrilling and hot, but typical.

I highly recommend this to anyone tired of the same cliches and stereotypes found in mainstream entertainment, particularly of black women. I praise Frank Miller for his vision, and also recommend a similarly unique book of his called Ronin.

"Give Me Liberty" tells the story of young Martha Washington, a precocious african-american girl growing up inside of the horror of public housing - "The Green" (a hideous development of the "Carbrini Green" projects of Chicago). At the dawn of a new century, a fascist president helms an America that features everything evil we can expect of the "New World Order" - including domination by corporations and an insurmountable gap between rich and poor. Abolishing term-limits (with each succesiive inauguaration, the crowds of supproters seems to be inversely proportional to the armed guards) the President spends most of his time reminding us how happy we should be thanks to him. At first trapped in Cabrini, Martha's savage misfortunes provide her an odd escape - first institutionalization, then (because it will clean her record) enlistment with PAX, a sort of corporate backed citizen's army. As a soldier on every one of America's frontlines, Martha witnesses how America's new empire is born, even as its dying. The enemies of course are not the Russians, but competing corporations (mostly theme parks and fast-food companies). In case you haven't caught on, "Give Me Liberty" is all about an advanced American state slowly disintegrating under its own weight. The country is soon gripped in civil wars - rather than a single conflict, the fighting is disorganized, along state, muncipal and corporate lines, and further complicated by various non-aligned factions, like the amazon women of the "First Sex Confederacy" and tribes of Native Americans armed with their own missiles. Even the left-wing administration that (briefly) suceeds Rexall is overwhelmed by the evil that is the new century.
While the story of America is compelling, "Give Me Liberty" actually suceeds because it never abandons Martha. Rather than some empty-headed figure upon whom "Give Me" can stamp its story, Martha is strong-willed, convincingly intelligent and surprisingly sympathetic. We never pity Martha nor can we condemn her for the ends she must take (which are violent - there's a fair amount of gore in the story). The future landscape of America is compelling, yet the story appears heavy-handed in some spots (the orbiting laser cannons are overtly phallic; the fst-food wars are fought by robots styled after the avatars of many Fat-Boy restaurants; genetic engineering creates an army of hyper-intelligent mutants used as living computers - like the "Pre-Cogs" of "Minority Report"; other clones include an army of beautiful but super-strong blondes who manage to escape the billionaire who bred them; then there's a mysterious surgeon general who seems patterned on Darth Vader - always masked, speaking in short sentences and never leaving any doubt of his homicidal mania). Still, the story can rely on our being continually focused on Martha. In that respect, "Give Me Liberty" does not dissappoint.

I decided to pick up Give me Liberty after reading Miller's, The Dark Knight Returns because I was very entertained by the story and how appropriate the level of violence was for the story.

But lets talk about this book. Give me Liberty follows the life of Martha Washington, a youth from an oppressive housing projects, who escapes from her oppressive home and ends up in a fascist military unit, PAX. The story follows a series of misadventures of Martha while she struggles to stay alive amidst all of the martial and political chaos.

I have to say, I enjoyed the book a lot. Not so much because I could sympathize with Martha but because of how interesting the setting is in the book. Miller portrays quite vividly how during the 90s a Reganesque figure turns the U.S. into a fascist dictatorship that wages pointlessly destructive wars abroad and at home with its own citizens. In Miller's vision of the future, America is simply a parody of its former self, with a surgeon general who is a gemophobic robot with sterilizing tendencies.

In comparison of Give me Liberty and the Dark Knight Returns, I would say I enjoyed the Dark Knight Returns more as far as the story and the characters. However, this is not to dismiss Give me Liberty which is also a very entertaining book that fails to create a protagonist that is identifiable but exceeds in creating a world that is rife with subtlety (hiding behind obviousness) and relevance (global warming, pollution, genetic experimentation, and fascism).
