Crimbo idea for the training wheels leftie in your life

A few years ago I received John Lee Anderson’s epic biography Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life in my Christmas stocking and to be honest, regardless of the detail and it’s billing as the seminal work on a figure I’m reasonably interested in, I just never had the time or dedication to finish it.

This year I’m setting the bar a little lower and hoping someone dear to me will splash out on Spain Rodriguez’s graphic novel Che: A Graphic Biography.

I’m sure some may think a ‘comic’ on the life of a major leftist icon seems a little trashy or cheap but this comes from the pen of the man that brought us, possibly the first (only?) Marxist comic book superhero, Trashman. It’s bound to be worth a read for those that share the twin youthful delights of comics and socialist politics.
