    Can't say I agree much with this review, either artwise (except for how good Gibbons is) nor as far as story is concerned.
    Not that there aren't some valid points to the criticism, but I don't consider Martha a failure at all. Perhaps it steams from my european comics background where this sort of future setting is quite common, but I really see "Give me liberty" as a work of Sci-fi literature to be compared with books like Neuromancer and the other leading Cyberpunk books of that time.

    Default gotta disagree...

    with the review- The Martha Washington books were great. Too bad they weren't more popular, but I don't think they were failures in any way.
