Redocats-ish collects more comic strips from Jeff Martin’s War of 1812 stories, featuring the misadventures of John and George, two not so fearless men of the Canadian militia. Heeding the call to defend Canada against the invading American army, John and George are now doing their best to be heroes, whilst also working hard to avoid battles, marching, danger or anything else that involves effort.
More mad-cap adventures this time as our hapless heroes stumble into Tecumseh, Laura Secord arm-wrestling a bear, the burning of the White House and the destruction of Toronto, I mean York. Niigaanwewidam Sinclair guest writes a story about their indigenous counterparts in a twist of perspective too.This a good fun read for anyone looking for War of 1812 adventures that make you chuckle.
Quote from Jeff Martin: “If you told me four years ago that I’d be preparing for the release of my SECOND book of cartoon strips about the War of 1812, I’d think you were mad. But here we happily are, with Redcoats-ish 2, continuing to tell the history of Canada with the exact amount of comedic irreverence that it’s absurdity deserves. Do you want to read a story of heroism, bravery, and glory? That’s not really what’s happening here – this is a story of baffling decisions, incompetent execution, and absurd results, and that’s just the generals. George and John are the perfect characters to show why Canadian history has never been so much fun.”
