- We can order this
From the creator of the historical comics Reg Saunders and Gallipoli: The Landing - winners of an Australian Educational Publishing Award - comes a dynamic graphic-novel treatment of the story of Edward `Ned' Kelly. With all the action rendered in full colour, high school readers and fans of graphic novels alike will see the story of our most famous bushranger come alive.
From Ned's birth in 1855 into a poor Irish immigrant family, to his criminal exploits in rural Victoria, through to the gunfights at Stringybark Creek and Glenrowan and his death at age 25, this book offers a new perspective on Ned's infamous acts. Incorporating newspaper clippings and other source material, it questions what we think we know about Ned Kelly, while reminding us that Australian history is full of unique characters and unexpected drama.
