    was very interested to hear about this treatment of the 1916 Rising as a graphic novel, combining as it does two of my interests I am afraid I was disappointed with the result My political sympathies are in any case closer to the dispassionate analysis of Charles Townshend, but I don t think this books will change anyone s mind about the Rising it may perhaps confuse them with detail one rather small map is provided at the very end , but the reade was very interested to hear about this treatment of the 1916 Rising as a graphic novel, combining as it does two of my interests I am afraid I was disappointed with the result My political sympathies are in any case closer to the dispassionate analysis of Charles Townshend, but I don t think this books will change anyone s mind about the Rising it may perhaps confuse them with detail one rather small map is provided at the very end , but the reader is basically assumed to be familiar with the big picture of the story Compared, say, with Pekar and Roberson s Macedonia, let alone the brilliant work of Joe Sacco, Hunt doesn t really probe very far into the human side of the conflict British soldiers are anonymous snarls, the civilians who mock and disobey the rebels merely rabble only the rebels themselves are given full hagiographical treatment, including curiously iconic depiction of their faces taken from the classic photographs The central narrative is framed by Grace Gifford s wedding to Joseph Plunkett the night before his execution, but we find out little about him and nothing about her which is a little ironic considering her later very successful career as a cartoonist An interesting experiment, but not a completely successful one

    I bought this graphic novel on a trip to Ireland a few years ago, and finally picked it up to read it through Although this narrative is an interesting and specific account of a particularly important battle in the history of Irish independence, I found the lack of overall context really detracted from my understanding of what was going on As someone who is not Irish and is pretty unfamiliar with Irish history, I could have used even a cursory introduction to what led up to the battle, what br I bought this graphic novel on a trip to Ireland a few years ago, and finally picked it up to read it through Although this narrative is an interesting and specific account of a particularly important battle in the history of Irish independence, I found the lack of overall context really detracted from my understanding of what was going on As someone who is not Irish and is pretty unfamiliar with Irish history, I could have used even a cursory introduction to what led up to the battle, what brought this group of volunteers together under the Rebellion, and even a line or two about the political context that made this uprising possible This novel also could have used a stronger story telling aspectit very much reads like a timeline this happened then this happened then this happened I m sure that this was a very emotionally charged and volatile time, but that didn t come through much at all

    Interesting story, but too much crammed into such a short volume, and generic looking characters and backgrounds, made it very difficult to sort out who was who and what was happening Also, there are constant references to the GPO, without EVER explaining what that was Thank you, Google and Wikipedia Honestly, I gotfrom the Wiki article on this.

    This sounded great a graphic novel about the Easter Rising But it s much too short to make a decent stab at the story and fleshing out the characters And what s worse I could detect the whiff of bias in its seeming glorification of the rebels After studying the Rising intricately I know bias when I smell it Maybe it s because the author s father fought in the Rising Expected muchIf this is a way of introducing the events of the Rising to a younger audience then it will f This sounded great a graphic novel about the Easter Rising But it s much too short to make a decent stab at the story and fleshing out the characters And what s worse I could detect the whiff of bias in its seeming glorification of the rebels After studying the Rising intricately I know bias when I smell it Maybe it s because the author s father fought in the Rising Expected muchIf this is a way of introducing the events of the Rising to a younger audience then it will fail, as you definitely need to be familiar with the story for this slick skimming over of it

    I read another one of his comics and I really like how the story is given as a primer and things go from there I picked these up in Dublin and I read them quite fast I enjoyed them and will use them as a supplementary material when teaching about Ireland.

    Very short and that, perhaps, is part of the problem Author takes broad assumptions in that the reader should already possess a decent familiarity with the events that transpired before reading Decent artwork and storyline, but no real meat to the characters.
