Set during the American Revolution, it’s a rather impertinent look at a history that some Americans hold sacrosanct.
For a start, it stars a teenager living in a Massachusetts that lost the American Revolution, and remains under British colonial rule. He doesn’t really find a side to take in the battle and ends up smack bang in the middle of opposing forces.
The book is created almost as a Revolutionary artifact that never existed, mirroring woodcut printing processes and mixing the mockery with pathos.
It can be a hardship when a self published small press title tries to barge its way through Diamond Comic Distribution’s doors, but this one deserves your support, and you can find a preview to the book below in case you need a little extra convincing as to the comic’s merits.
Although in a strange twist of fate when researching this book, I came across an Irish horse race from last September, in which Freedom was being run by one Seamus Heffernan in the Diamond Stakes… and won.
A good omen perhaps?
