In 1911, Roger Casement was knighted by King George V for his humanitarian work. Five years later, he was hanged for treason. The Trial of Roger Casement (Self Made Hero: November 1st, 2016; U.S. $19.95; Paperback) traces the true story of the astonishing downfall of an Irishman once feted for his compassion, but later condemned both as a revolutionary and as a homosexual.

Writer and illustrator Fionnuala Doran follows Casement’s efforts to gain German support for an independent Ireland, his drive to recruit volunteers, and his subsequent arrest in County Kerry. This politically charged and enlightening graphic novel pictures Casement’s three-day interrogation at Scotland Yard, his incarceration at the Tower of London, and his time in the dock at the Old Bailey.

Hopes of a reprieve begin to vanish when his private diaries are seized and circulated by police, but Casement’s defiance never wavers: there, in the courtroom, he delivers one of the greatest speeches of all time. The Trial of Roger Casement is an important and moving graphic novel whose message of tolerance and equality is as relevant today as it was in the early 20th century.
