This dramatic and extensively researched book breathes new life into the story of Ernesto “Che” Guevara. It portrays his revolutionary struggle through the appropriate 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: his motorcycle journey through Latin America, his rise to prominence as a leader in Fidel Castro’s revolutionary movement, his travels in Africa, the desperate mission in Bolivia that led to his death, and his extraordinary legacy.
“Spain’s take on Che is brilliant and radical.”
“Spain is one of the true giants of the comics medium. He is a singular artist; his work is unmistakable.”
