Description - Che: A Graphic Biography by Sid Jacobson

A symbol of counterculture worldwide, Ernesto "Che" Guevara is one of the most, if not the most, recognizable and influential revolutionary figures of the twentieth century. From the pages of history textbooks to silk-screened T-shirts at Urban Outfitters, his mythologized face is positively unavoidable. But what, exactly, does this glorified image stand for?

During his life, and perhaps even more since his death, Che has elicited controversy and wildly divergent opinions as to who he was and what he represented. In "Che: A Graphic Biography," Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon the graphic duo who made the 9/11 Commission Report understandable in their bestselling "The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation "and who most recently explained the ongoing war on terror in "After 9/11" have come together again to give a real portrait of Ernesto Guevara de la Serna. Following Che from his fabled motorcycle journeys with Alberto Granado as a young medical student to his eventual execution at the hands of Bolivian soldiers and CIA operatives, "Che: A Graphic Biography "not only provides a concrete time line of his life but also gives a broader understanding of his beliefs, his legacy, and Latin American politics during the mid-twentieth century."
