Freedom From Diamond Comic Distribution

Posted by January 22, 2012 Comment

Potato Comics is publishing Xeric winning small press title Freedom by Seamus Heffernan in April, now distributed by Diamond Comic Distribution.

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?
