Product Details


“A remarkable accomplishment, one that belongs next to such works of graphical history as the March series and Shigeru Mizuki’s Showa books. By foregrounding the tension between myth and truth, Che illuminates the present state of our politics as well as the past.” NPR

“An amazing feat. . . . [Che] belongs in every library collection and on the shelves of any store with an audience for serious graphic non-fiction.”—ICv2

“A visual triumph.”—Kirkus
“Gorgeously illustrated and engrossing. . . . Guevara’s life makes for both a breathtaking adventure story and a sobering history that readers are sure to embrace with enthusiasm.”—Library Journal
“Spectacularly illustrated. . . . From [Che’s] comfortable Argentine birth, medical training, and peripatetic commitment to fighting capitalist U.S. imperialism to his assassination, Anderson and Hernández turn myth into man. . . . Author and artist deftly balance Che’s revolutionary idealism with his failures in leadership, his arrogance, his familial inadequacies. Affecting moments are many, including even the origin story of Che’s emblematic beret.”—Booklist
“A cinematic approach chips away at the myths and misunderstandings that still surround the life of Che Guevara, the famed doctor turned revolutionary, in this in-depth graphic novel adaptation of Anderson’s exhaustive biography. . . . Adding warmth to the exhaustive research drawn from letters, newspapers and official documents are Che’s writings to his mother.”—Publishers Weekly

[Hernández’s] artwork stuns with cinematic precision and photographic detail. This book puts readers in the thick of the South American and Caribbean jungles, where the Cuban revolution was won. Scenes of bullets whizzing by Che and his guerilla fighters provide tension and immediacy, while close-ups that focus on the speakers and blur background details lend the narrative a documentary feel. . . . A stunning graphic adaptation of Jon Lee Anderson’s biography of Che.”—Shelf Awareness
