This figure is a very nostalgic one for me. When I was in middle school in 1990, I was captivated by the first issue of Give Me Liberty by Frank Miller and Dave Gibbons. At the time, I was mostly reading Batman and GI Joe comics, so this was the first time a more mature comic ever caught my eye. That pesky word "mature" plagued me for years though. My local comic shop guy refused to sell me a copy. But I was easily distracted and quickly moved on to other obsessions, until a friend of my brother got a copy and flaunted it before me. It wasn't until years later when, under Dark Horse's Legend imprint, the sequel series Martha Washington Goes to War was published. I finally got my taste of Martha's dystopian future of political evils and social uprising. To be perfectly honest I wasn't a huge fan. But that's mostly because my tastes had actually reverted to simpler superheroics and fantasy by that point. A few years after that, this action figure was released commemorating her more grown up look in Martha Washington Goes to War. As usual, I'm a man of delayed gratification and I never picked up this figure until a few years ago.
There are three variations of this figure. My version is a crew-cut version. There is also a bald version and a dreadlocks version (shown below).
Martha comes with a ton of weapons including a machine gun, a sword, an ammunition belt, a utility belt, and a little yellow belt. The two variants of Martha come with different accessories as well. All versions come with an exclusive MWGTW comic with a story entitled Logistics.

Here are a bunch of comic covers.
And here are some shots of her stripped of all her accessories.
Time for a Comparison Pic!
