    This book has a great visual opening: Drawings of teenagers wearing Che T-shirts, posters of Che on buildings, and Che's picture used as a backdrop during a rally. "His image is iconic, spread around the world in various forms." The book is described as a "manga biography" of Che Guevara. I think it's a creative way to give a primer about the revolutionary leader, but it is not very deep and it races through a lot of important events.

"His image is iconic, spread around the world in various forms." The book is described as a "manga biography" of Che Guevara. I think it's a creative way to give a primer about the revolutionary leader, but it is not very deep and it races through a lot of important events. I think I appreciated it because I already had some knowledge about Che, but if you had no background on him, you might be a bit confused. For example, we get a glimpse of his childhood in Argentina, and then you turn a page and he's riding a motorcycle around South America, and then he's in Guatemala, and then he meets Fidel Castro in Mexico, and then he's a guerilla leader in Cuba, and then he's traveling around the world, and then he's in the Congo, and then he's shot to death in Bolivia (purportedly by the CIA). It was the biographical version of whiplash. Which says that maybe you can't limit Che's life to 172 pages of a graphic novel. The guy needs a 600-page biography. But I did like it, and maybe it will inspire someone to read more about Che. I think it's great when artists use graphic novels to tell interesting socio-political and historical stories. While this is not a perfect example, I admired the spirit of the thing. (It is also a good example of the treasures that can be found when I take time to just browse at the library. I work in one, but my job keeps me so busy I rarely have time to wander. Must. Browse. More.) Some good quotes from Che: "I want to be a doctor who cures our society." "If you tremble indignation at every injustice then you are a comrade of mine." "I am not a liberator. Liberators do not exist. The people liberate themselves." "There are no boundaries in this struggle to the death. We cannot be indifferent to what happens anywhere in the world, for a victory by any country over imperialism is our victory; just as any country's defeat is a defeat for all of us." "As long as injustice and subsequent suffering remain, somebody, somewhere, will continue to stand up against you."

    A simple biography of Che Guevara. It gives brief glimpses of his life and the achievements. It does make you learn more about this man who dedicated his life for a cause... "Hasta la Victoria Siempre" (Forever, until victory). A simple biography of Che Guevara. It gives brief glimpses of his life and the achievements.

    This is the life story of Che Guevara told in manga comic style. The focus is very much on him as 1) a revolutionary hero whose life mission was to fight injustice and 2)his role as a significant contributor to the establishment of Castro's Cuba. It is scattered with original sayings of Che Guevara e.g. "if you tremble indignation at every injustice then you are a comrade of mine". I'm sure it is slightly unbalanced & bordering on hagiography, but as a easy-to-read overview of some of the events This is the life story of Che Guevara told in manga comic style.

I think that graphic novels like this are a useful vehicle for potted histories, particularly for "book-shy" teens

    I'm sympathetic to the subject and the subject-matter but I can't give this more than three stars because it does whitewash important elements of Guevara's life, even taking into account the form. For instance his divorce from Hilda was dealt with in three, romanticized panels. I had thought it might be a good primer for children to get to know his story but I'm not so sure, I'd want a little more complexity even in a kid's story.

You gotta read it at least!

    This was an interesting book, especially as though I'd seen the face before, I actually had no idea who Che Guevara was and had never heard his name. The art in the book was well-drawn and fun. However, I wish it had been a bit more well-written, as there were more than a few grammar mistakes and some of the sentences were awkward. It was a quick read and I'd recommend it for people who don't have the patience for a full-length biography. Overall a decent book.

    Beautifully drawn and almost captures the spirit of che, doesn't quite make it. For people who have never heard of him, or know little more than his face on a T-shirt (which is actually how the book starts off)this is a good introduction. However, there was nothing new for me and I felt that it was more of a hagiography than it was a biography. Still, worth reading and gazing upon...

    I really like this manga biography of Che Guevara. I learned more about him and how his relationship was with Fidel Castro. It is a really good book. I recommend this book to teens who like manga books, and who like biographies. I like the details the author includes in this book, it helped me understand more about the revolution in Cuba.

    Over-simplified, seemingly unedited (for grammar) and incredibly one-sided. It comes across like propaganda given to young elementary school children. I don't mind reading material that doesn't favor America, but it was so poorly written that it was nearly impossible to take it seriously.

    3.5 Stars! As is often the way in Japanese Manga, I couldn’t help but notice that many of the occidental characters in here have suspiciously Japanese looking features, but nevertheless the art work is of a high standard and really enhances the text well. This gives a good insight and overview into the life and times of Guevara, whilst glossing over many of the uglier elements of him and Castro, (homophobia, shooting and killing defectors etc), but it does an admirable enough job.

I was quite surprised by the amount of typos in here, I would have thought a company like Penguin would have been a little sharper, a brand with its global reach and reputation really should have picked them up, especially in a book with so little text in it. Guevara did a lot of good and his anti-American, anti-imperialist outlook, understandably appeals to millions, but it would be ridiculous to call this a balanced book, this is fairly one sided and almost borders on the re-writing of history. But when all is said and done, this is an enjoyable read and you do get to learn a lot about the subject. This book makes a good companion alongside “The Motorcycle Diaries” and anyone looking for further reading will be able to satisfy their curiosity via many of the other, more in depth Guevara biographies out there.

    I recently read Spain Rodriguez's Che and, as fascinated as I am by Che, I was more interested in Spain's take on him. That got me curious about other "graphic biographies" of Che and, of course, the manga one was at the top of my list. The similarities and differences are interesting. Both give a quick overview of the highlights, serving as a decent primer, but often emphasize different moments. Spain put more time into the motorcycle trip, which more firmly establishes Che's motivations.

Spain put more time into the motorcycle trip, which more firmly establishes Che's motivations. He also deals with Che's kind of messy love life more honestly. Not that Spain was really critical, but his account seems more clear-eyed, while this one is more rose-colored. I like the manga art style. It's appealing, though I'm not sure it completely gels with the subject matter. Spain was able to use his artwork to engage with Che's iconic image. The manga starts the same, in the present day with people seeing his image on t-shirts and posters everywhere they look, but never engages with the legacy of Che imagery beyond that introduction. All in all, it's a quick read that covers most of the basics and is probably a good place to start, especially for reluctant readers.

    Highly disappointing. First of all, the female characters in this story only existed because they had a relationship with Che (mother, wife, etc.) and they had no motivation or purpose outside of the fact that they had something to do with Che. They were beyond flat, which is the fault of the writers and editors. Second, the story wasn't fully developed. I learned almost nothing knew about Che Guevara, and this text offered nothing new about his life or story. The plot was a series of highlights Highly disappointing.

    My painful truth is that my 20thc international history knowledge is really bad. So while I had a name and a philosophy I knew really nothing about Che. I still know very little, as other reviewers have pointed out this book is slim and has holes - and I found myself many times checking if I had missed a page or a panel, there’s a confusing quality to the story with scenes suddenly cutting off or picking back up. Anyway, it’s a Japanese manga about Che Guevara - it’s all we can expect and while My painful truth is that my 20thc international history knowledge is really bad.

    A very brief survey of Che's life. I'm reading it as a quick primer before longer books on Che and Cuba and it's pretty good for this purpose. You will not finish it with any kind of deep understanding of any part of his life, but you will retain some key episodes which have been sketched out. I'd recommend the 2-part Soderbergh film as a next step for learning more about his time as a guerrilla in Cuba and Bolivia, which is explored only very quickly here.

    The last Che Bio I reviewed, I referred a few times to "historical inaccuracies". In light of this Che comic, I'd like to re-characterize that distinction as a "bias". After all, history is sometimes open to interpretation, and there can be several "truths" in a story -sometimes we welcome it- where conflicting interests are concerned. Perhaps my beef with Sid Jacobson's CHE Biography was that it was so totally American in its bias.

In light of this Che comic, I'd like to re-characterize that distinction as a "bias". After all, history is sometimes open to interpretation, and there can be several "truths" in a story -sometimes we welcome it- where conflicting interests are concerned. Perhaps my beef with Sid Jacobson's CHE Biography was that it was so totally American in its bias. For example, the section on the Bay of Pigs was through the eyes of a Cold-War-stricken Kennedy, not the millions of Cubans having their country invaded (as they were used by the USSR). In my opinion, this Che biography shows an impression of Che through other eyes in the world. Like most Managa, this book comes from Japan, and looks at Che more as a folk hero than a strictly historical figure. Like most folklore, it is a light introduction to a subject--a simplified, more-or-less linear narrative. It always kills me when I see a book released by a major publisher (Penguin, in this case) where there is a typo on the first bloody page. Where the book is originally published is irrelevant; typos in an English translation (with, let's face it--only so many words fit into a manga book...) are inexcusable on a 200 page book with a list price of $20. I also find myself wondering how much of this book would make sense if I hadn't already experienced other Che-related movies and books. There seems to be a lot of recycling here from Motorcycle Diaries. If it's not original, at least the book is still passionate. Sid Jacobson's Che Biography (which I reviewed last week) seemed so steril and uninspired, I wondered why or how the man got involved in writing the book. This personal admiration for the man behind the Cuban Revolution is clear later in the book, as Che is traveling around the world seeking purchasers for Cuban sugar. In a last-minute itinerary change, it explains, Che decides to visit the city of Hiroshima, site of the notorious U.S. bomb drop in WWII. Of everything in the book, I found this to be a high-point in the storytelling: it reveals something about both author and subject--and a connection, a passion for humanity against injustice, that they both share. Despite this, and much stronger wording of the U.S. relationship towards Latin America (other Che biographies take note: we know you're trying to be "unbiased", but you can only use the words "meddling" and "intervention" so many times. Call a spade a spade: it's called imperialism) there remains some unfortunate truths about this book. Mangas are now prized around the world for their accessibility and entertainment value; maybe I'm expecting too much, but the dialogue here is so terrible. So scripted. The dialogue between Che and Fidel Castro is portrayed for conversations that are not public to the historical record, and I sincerely believe that they didn't play out the way they did in this book. Again... I am reminded that this book is made with a nod to folklore--not just academic history. There is a bibliography, but several passages that I believe required annotation, like a poem written over the July 26's entry into Cuba, are not clearly noted. CHE: A Manga Biography offers some original nuggets of innovation to what has become a collective storytelling of Che's life. As well, it rightly contrasts with other more Amero-centric biographies, like Sid Jacobson's take on the Bay of Pigs/Cuban Missile Crisis and U.S. intervention in Latin America. But ultimately, it still is not quite a "good" comic. Too many typos, campy scenes of heroism, and poorly-scripted dialogue. Star Rating: 2 1/2

    I had no idea about Che Guevara's actual life history and only about how his actions affected South America so it was interesting to find out that he was initially a doctor and that he rode a motorcycle around South America to help health workers care for the sick. It's painfully obvious however that this entire book is extremely biased toward communism and against capitalism, glossing over all of the hardships that Guevara and Castro's totalitarian 'revolutions' inflicted on South Americans.

It's pretty much propaganda. Also, making it seem like the entire overthrowing of the regimes was caused by 12 men is a ridiculous oversimplification. On the plus side, I read this in about an hour so I only wasted an hour of my life. Half of the world admires Castro, including my country's useless prime minister, and yet Cuba is forced to support him and Che because they were dictators at the end of the day... Open displays of opposition will get you arrested and in the past, executed or placed in a slave labour camp. What 'freedom' he brought to his people, so much so that millions fled to the States... To those admiring him, read some history books that aren't biased please. If you look at the shortages in basic supplies that Cubans and Argentinians are facing today among other South American countries, you can see how communism *really* helped them. I'm not saying the States were innocent throughout the whole period of the Cuban revolution, far from it, but there was corruption on both sides. Ties with the Russian mafia government is never a good sign. Looking at the bibliography used for this book, most of the sources are extremely biased. Also, it's *such* a surprise that the authors are Japanese, considering the heavy anti-American sentiment. I gave this 2 stars for the work that was put into the beautiful illustrations and the interesting premise but if you're looking for an accurate, unbiased depiction of Che and Castro, look elsewhere. Che Guevara's 'ideal' will never come true as long as Marxism and communism are rightfully thwarted.

    I liked this book for what it was: a comic book. This was the first time I had even seen a manga biography--and the first time I had read anything manga--but I got the concept pretty quick and figured this would be a good place for me to start since I had already read a biography on Che. I found that Shimano told the story well despite it being poorly written due to its format. But I assumed the goal was primarily to entertain and secondarily to inform and Shimano achieved that.

    Ate this in two sittings. Being a manga, it is a quick read, however the story is rather informational. Konno even includes a fair sized bibliography that even includes Guevara's writings. I picked this book up at first sight not only since I knew he was a figure I've wanted to learn about but because it's a MANGA. This is not the first time two great things have been combined (i.e. Chicken & Waffles). Ate this in two sittings. Being a manga, it is a quick read, however the story is rather informational.

    Delightful graphic biography of 'Che.' Well researched and attractively presented. Its main flaw is that the translation from the Japanese is not perfect and there seem to be some typos. But, even with these flaws, it is worth reading. It would make an excellent introduction to 'Che' and the Cuban Revolution for adolescents. Delightful graphic biography of 'Che.'

    This book is very interesting. I don't really like to read but this book caught my attention. I like how the book tells a huge story about someone. Even though it's just a comic book I can kind of relate to some of the stuff that happens in this book. This book is probably one of the best books i have read. This book is very interesting.
