''Give Me Liberty'' is a ComicBook series by FrankMiller and Dave Gibbons, originally published in 1990-1991 in four 48-page volumes. It describes the life of Martha Washington, an impoverished black girl born into one of the worst ghettos of Chicago in a dystopian near-future, with the United States on the verge of civil war. Despite her lack of opportunities and the machinations of others out to destroy her, Martha eventually becomes a war hero and a major figure in deciding the fate of the United States.

* TitleDrop: "Give me liberty" are Martha's last words in ''Martha Washington Dies''.

* UnexpectedSuccessor: Agriculture secretary Howard Nissen becomes president after a bomb takes out the rest of the cabinet. Despite his good intentions, it doesn't work out in the long run, arguably because by that point in time the US is simply too broken as a result of Rexall's tyranny and incompetence.

This causes Nissen to cross his [[DespairEventHorizon despair event horizon]], which results in him spiralling ever deeper into alcoholism.

* SmugSnake: Erwin Rexall. Colonel Moretti also teeters on the verge of this, despite his MagnificentBastard tendencies, particularly since he ends up being much better at scheming to be put in power than he is at actually ''being'' in power.
