'The story of Ned Kelly, Australia's most famous outlaw in an action-packed graphic novel format!

'Edward ' Ned' Kelly was born in 1855 into a poor Irish immigrant family in rural Victoria. He grew up loyal to his family, angry at the injustice he saw in Australian society and desperate to better his situation by any means. Often in trouble with the police, the so-called Kelly Gang was involved in horse and cattle stealing, bank robbing, kidnapping and, ultimately, murder.

'But he was the only bushranger to write a famous and compelling letter explaining his behaviour. After a legendary shoot-out, Ned was captured by police and later hanged at Melbourne Gaol. Folk hero or criminal, this is the story of Ned Kelly as you've never seen it before.' (Publication summary)
