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.

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.
