  1. Always liked the Marsha Washington stuff, from the first release.

    At the risk of diverting the thread, your last “great moments” post was from the McDuffie FF run, and we traded comments. I’d long ago read a few loose issues out of a local 3-for-a-buck bin, and liked them, but your recommendation goosed me to go buy the first McDuffie trade, which I’m 3/4 through and enjoying a lot. Shame there’s only one more trade after this. So thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

  2. No problem! I’m glad to hear that you’ve enjoyed it. My whole grand idea behind Great Moments is showing that good comics starring or featuring black people are available and in print. I’m really happy to hear that it’s working out.

  3. All right! It’s out!

    To Amazon!

    (thanks for the heads up)

  4. WOW, that was an incredible few pages! I’ll definitely be checking this out.

  5. God damn “Give me Liberty” was amazing. One of the best things Frank Miller or Dave Gibbons ever did, easily, and this is probably my favorite sequence from it.

  6. I noticed that there are sequels after this book. Are any of them good? The first book laid out a pretty interesting landscape of America, and I’d like to see where it goes.

  7. I enjoyed them, but the law of diminishing returns applies, I think. I don’t think that they’re bad, but the best is the first. It was like a shotgun blast.
