Ok, now i know what you mean, but you donīt know the background history, what the free colony did? maybe the free colony are the bad guys. Look USA and his international interests arround the world. They are the so called land of the free, but in some cases their actions against other countries looks totally the opposite. Check in my gallery, you will find an old drawing I did about the Red Superman, one of my fav comics.
If you allowed me the advice, next time donīt judge the book just by the cover, maybe is trying to say, in a subtle way, something different on the inside.
