  • Annotation:
    • Che Guevara has become an iconic figure and folk hero with his face on t-shirts and posters across the world. This manga biography offers a superficial presentation of his life and activities. Clearly biased, this volume portrays Che as a noble, impassioned freedom fighter but is lacking in nuance and historical perspective.
