Summary
Teenage runaway slaves with superhuman powers, a Hessian giant, the most evil slave owners imaginable, and Benjamin Franklin: this story of the Revolution blends fact and fantasy in an imaginative reinterpretation of a critical time in American history

Summary
The American Revolution might have gone down differently with a few superheroes thrown in -- especially if those heroes happened to be runaway slaves. This fast-paced adventure comic presents an alternative history in which slaves Brody and Graham, fleeing their cruel master, go in search of (real-life) abolitionist and radical Quaker Benjamin Lay but are instead intercepted by Benjamin Franklin's maniacal son, William. William performs electrical experiments on Graham and Brody that result in their acquisition of super-human strength, speed, and mental acuity. So watch out, Redcoats and slave hunters -- the sons of liberty are coming. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
