CHE: A GRAPHIC BIOGRAPHY.
New York: Verso, 2008. 1st ed. 4to, wrps, 106 p., illus. SIgned by Spain '08 New Paperback 978-8432313684 This dramatic and extensively researched book breathes new life into his story, portraying his struggle through the medium of the underground political comic — one of the most prominent countercultural art forms since the 1960s. Spain Rodriguez's powerful artwork illuminates Che's life and the experiences that shaped him, from his motorcycle journey through Latin America, his rise to prominence as a leader in Fidel Castro's revolutionary movement, his travels in Africa, his involvement in the insurgency that led to his death in Bolivia, and his extraordinary legacy. "Spain's take on Che is brilliant and radical." Art Spiegelman "Spain is one of the true giants of the comics medium. He is a singular artist; his work is unmistakable." Joe Sacco, author of Palestine "A blend of realism and stylisation that lights up the form, a positive masterclass in visual narrative." Independent on Sunday (Item ID: 155463)
