The rebellion that set Ireland free, told as a graphic novel.

The 1916 Easter Rising was an attempt by a small group of militant Irish republicans to win independence from Britain. It was the most significant rebellion in Ireland. Though a military failure, it set Ireland on the road to freedom from Britain.

The book covers the story from the early planning to the final executions and includes the tragic romance between Joseph Plunkett and Grace Gifford.

Following on from the success of political graphic novels such as Maus and Persepolis, this is accessible, informative and insightful history at its best.

Review:

fantastic ... it’s a great sign of what can be done through that medium and I hope we’ll see more like it ... We featured this and asked some children to review it and they raved about it, they loved it

(TV3’s Ireland AM)

really smart ... tricks you into learning stuff

(Ireland AM, TV3)

a history that brings the Rising to life. Too many accounts of the rebellion are austere and gloomy, and portray the key personalities as distant, ascetic figures. Blood Upon the Rose restores to the story its spirit of adventure, and a rounded humanity

(Irish Independent)

I've no idea why I haven't blogged about Gerry Hunts historical graphic novels before. We've had Blood Upon The Rose, the story of Easter 1916, since it was published in 2009. That was such a success that when At War With The Empire, the follow up came out, I ordered it straightaway. It was a no-brainer - my eldest son loved graphic novels and flew through them. And these books explained (in colourful detail) Irish history that he needed to know about, for school and for life. This latest one, 1913 Larkin's Labour War which I found in the library last week is his favourite of the lot

(onthestripeycouchonasaturdaymorning.blogspot.ie)

the comic would be particularly useful for Irish Junior Cert and Leaving Cert students studying history, or general history buffs of early 20th century Irish and British relations

(Girlslikecomics.com)

'a landmark Irish graphic novel'

(Irish Times)

'pulls the story together brilliantly ... a lovely thing to have'

(Tom Dunne, Newstalk 106)

'Few other publications have brought the Rising to life as viscerally as Gerry Hunt's Blood Upon the Rose ... an interesting and fresh take on a tale that most people would assume they knew by rote'

(Sunday Tribune)

'the Easter Rising as you’ve never seen it before ... a colourful comic story about the famous revolt'

(Evening Herald)

'will appeal to youngsters and will familiarise with them with the heroes and heroines of the Easter Rebellion'

(Irish Examiner)

About the Author:

Gerry Hunt worked for twenty-five years as an architect, eighteen of them with the IDA. In 1986 he left architecture and began drawing political cartoons. From this, he moved on to drawing entire comics ... his first, selfproduced, comic was a rhyming, Spanish-language work that he gave away to friends.He has since published In Dublin City and The Streets of Dublin. The Streets of Dublin has been included in an exhibition entitled ‘Artist’s Books’ in the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. He has published ground-breaking historical graphic novels for The O'Brien Press, about the 1913 Lockout, Easter Rising (1916), War of Independence (1919) and Babby Sands.
