New City Lit  has just reviewed Adam Shapiro and Jon Sack's new graphic novel La Lucha: The Story of Lucha Castro and Human Rights in Mexico

Adam Shapiro and Jon Sack have created, through their combination of prose and illustrations, a book that’s impossible to put down despite its painful subject matter. Jon Sack’s black-and-white panels are well paced and have a tight, unrelenting linearity that one associates with prisons and deserts rather than the Mexican beaches. This art perfectly serves Front Line Defenders’ mission to make the world aware of human rights defenders who place their lives on the line every day. It seems right to end here with the names of seven extraordinary fighters as they appear in the index of “La Lucha:” Lucha, Gabino, Alma, Marisela, Norma, Emilia, Josefina.
