Produced in conjunction with fine art master printers Axelle Fine Arts, this print was released in a limited run to raise funds for the Comic Book Legal Defence Fund in 2011.
Limited to just 50 copies, this edition is numbered #25, and is signed and numbered by Paul Pope bottom right.
"The Liberty Tree was published in Liberty Comics #2 as a 2 page spread, but the drawing itself is quite a bit larger. The theme is loosely based on Jefferson's quotation about the "tree of liberty". I wanted to chose a subject which was uniquely American, yet different from the sort of text book imagery you'd see about the American Revolution and the Revolutionaries. Larry Marder suggested I do a piece based on a series of quotes he offered, all of which related to some statement about free speech and individual liberty. I like the tree image and the complexities of a native American (in this case, a Huron) as subject, and went with that. The piece is also quietly a tribute to Hugo Pratt, whose books Indian Summer, Fort Wheeling, and Jesuit Joe all inform my own work in comics" - Paul Pope
