''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.

* UnexpectedSuccessor: Agriculture secretary Howard Nissen becomes president after a bomb takes out the rest of the cabinet.

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