The inventor of the Trashman series, underground comics icon Manuel "Spain" Rodriguez here breathes new life into the story of revolutionary icon Ernesto "Che" Guevara in this "brilliant and radical" (Art Spiegelman) visual biography. Spain's bold, black-lined artwork illuminates Che's life and the experiences that shaped him—his motorcycle journey across Latin America, his rise to prominence as a leader in Fidel Castro's revolutionary movement, his travels in Africa, and his involvement in the insurgency that led to his death in Bolivia—as well as his extraordinary legacy.

"There are few members of the 1960s underground comics wave whose names inspire more awe and respect.... Rodriguez tracks Guevara's development from adventurous but asthmatic middle-class Argentinean medical student to messianic revolutionary with aplomb. Guevara's by-now legendary motorcycle and hitchhiking wanderings around South America are portrayed with some levity, while the Cuban revolution and its aftermath are covered with an impressive command of the event's sociopolitical context. By folding Guevara's biographical narrative (already well-traveled by multiple other sources) into one that draws out his growing political awareness, Rodriguez keeps Guevara's beliefs front and center throughout this eventful but thickly worded book.... His art is muscular and unfussy, though oddly square, as if Mark Trail had suddenly discovered the genius of Karl Marx and Simón Bolívar."—Publishers Weekly
