A fictional portrayal or a real monster
Imagine a comic book about Hitler written by a neo-nazi or one about UBL written by a Jihadist painting either of these monsters in a most favorable light possible. That is what this is about Che. The author goes out of way to portay U.S. and U.S. army in a very bad light just to glorify the man who killed ar had killed thousands of innocent people - glossing over the racism, the violence and the adultry. I don't know what the author has in the game but I have never read a biography this 'original' or this 'romantic'.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A Good Primer
"Che" by Spain Rodriguez, Paul Buhle (editor) serves well to introduce the basic biographic information about Che in a balanced presentation. The notion that a graphic novel makes his intellectual, philosophical, and political passions easier to grasp is well worth this effort. And this book succeeds admirably. The premise that illustration can be used to illuminate the deep spiritual motives behind his actions is original and daring. A good book and a fine effort all around.Was this review helpful?
