5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent continuation of the first novel, December 29, 2014
An excellent continuation of the first novel, upping the stakes. A few wrinkles from the first novel are smoothed out here, showing the writer's growing awareness of his own strengths. Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars I simply love it., November 13, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Its dystopian scifi, its military scifi, it's beat you over the head satire. To tell you the truth it is kind of a mess, but I love it nonetheless.
Martha Washington is a poor girl with high I.Q. and high motivation whose only way out of squalor is the military. What follows is her adventures, misadventures, and general befuddlement by the ways of the military.
Dave Gibbons' art is beautiful in my eyes. It is full of detail, but not too much so. It serves the story perfectly.
As for the story, Frank Miller writes a good one, proving that it doesn't have to be Sin City in order for him to put his heart into it. In the forewords by both himself and Gibons, there is actual love professed for this character. She is a character that captured my heart as well.
Is it worth the price? Well, considering how hard it is to find all the chapters individually, yes it is. Plus, the sketches and notes from Gibbons show how much thought was put into this " personal epic".
There are problems. Miller is never subtle and even less so in this. But Martha demands your attention.
I hope you like it as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars optimistic fun, June 19, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Optimism used to be the accepted way to be. Then, of course, Vietnam destroyed that. These are stories from the time when we wanted to go to the moon to both beat the Communists and because it was there. Stories where anything can be overcome by a little science, a little luck, and knowing that youre doing the right thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars has anyone heard of this?, August 27, 2006
This review is from: The American (Paperback)
I can't believe this has been out for a year, and no one has written a review. Excellent miniseries that no one heard of the first time it was published either. Fun story about a Captain America clone, conspiracies, and how PR men are Satan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once you make it past the first 70 pages, get ready, October 27, 2002
This review is from: Henry Martyn (Hardcover)
A slow, slow start as befitting the swashbuckling influences that Smith cites in his dedication. But once it gets going the action builds to a fun and satisfying ending. Archaic language that takes a while to muddle through will be charming to some, offputting to others. Also be prepared for some scenes that are shocking in the description of their violence.


Blaze Of Glory: The Last Ride of the Western Heroes

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read for anyone who rememebers the old western comics, October 13, 2002
John Ostrander ( Grimjack, The Spectre) says goodbye to the Marvel Western lineup of the sixties and early seventies. In bringing a Spaghetti western sensibility to what were essentially Roy Rogers clones he puts a new spin and fitting ending to these forgotten heroes.
