Summary "Welcome to Corpse Talk, the chat show with a difference - all of the guests are dead! Meet your host, comic book artist Adam Murphy, as he interviews eighteen show-stopping rebels. Want to read the inside story of Sitting Bull, the last chief of the great Sioux nation? Or wondered what led to Martin Luther King Jr becoming such an iconic freedom-fighter? This graphic novel answers all of your questions about the lives of these rancorous rebels with a cause, from the struggles they overcame for their countries to their personal challenges. Bold and expressive illustrations by Adam and Lisa Murphy bring historical events to life, literally, while humorous text makes learning history fun. Full-page illustrations give more detail on the bigger picture behind the rebels stories, with special features on gladiators in Ancient Rome, crime and punishment in medieval times, and an overview of guerrilla warfare. Whether youre a fan of these adventurous rebels or just love a good story, this graphic novel will not fail to inspire you and make you laugh."-- Provided by publisher.
