Another book on Ned Kelly?
Well yes and no.
It is certainly a book on the Australian bushranger... but it is like no other!
In the 1970s, Artist and Historian Monty Wedd produced a weekly newspaper adventure strip that fully detailed Kelly's life.
This volume collects, for the very first time, each and every eposide of Monty Wedd's monumental three year undertaking.
Wedd made Ned Kelly as authentic as possible. He told the story with an even handed approach...and...rendered it in a style that resembles earlier engravings. It was an excellent example of how to use the comic medium to teach history. - John Ryan, Panel by Panel: An Illustrated History of Australian Comics
