REVIEWS

Praise for Che “Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colón make a formidable team, as nimble, persistent, and resourceful as Che and Fidel trekking through the Sierra Maestra. Their graphic biography Che, like their previous collaborations, is history contextualized with the range, precision, and vividness demanded by its momentous subject.”
—Mark Singer, author of Character Studies

“A lively, well-drawn rendering of Guevara’s eventful life—not out of place in a fashionista’s handbag, but worthy of a more serious audience as well.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Colón’s propulsive, full-color cartoons depict everything from the UN to Chilean copper mines to Prague. One full chapter of the book takes readers through every country in Latin America and each country’s history to the mid-1950s—a crash course from writer Jacobson in colonial rule, independence movements, and CIA involvement in things like the overthrow of Guatamala’s democratically elected Jacob Arbenz.”
—Suzi Steffen, Eugene Weekly
