"Ή ήρωες θα γίνουμε ή μάρτυρες".

Δεν πρέπει να υπάρχει άλλη προσωπικότητα του εικοστού αιώνα που να λειτούργησε τόσο πολωτικά, που να έζησε μια τόσο συναρπαστική και ταυτόχρονα αντιφατική ζωή, σαν τον ηγέτη της κουβανέζικης επανάστασης και μετέπειτα πρόεδρο της Κούβας Φιντέλ Κάστρο.

Ο Ράινχαρτ Κλάιστ ζωγράφισε με εκρηκτικά χρώματα και τολμηρές γραμμές τη ζωή του "Maximo Li

Excelente obra tanto do ponto de vista artístico - desenho e roteiro - quanto do ponto de vista histórico. Os autores fazem uma narrativa criativa da história de Fidel Castro e da revolução cubana a partir da visão do personagem, Karl - um jornalista alemão que se apaixona pela causa e acaba casando com uma cubana revolucionária, Júlia - a qual mais tarde se desilude com a revolução e foge para Miami. O roteiro se baseia em profunda pesquisa histórica. O roteirista, Volker Skierka, autor de "Fid ...more

This book is a good start for anyone interested in Cuba's struggle. The graphic novel is presented chiefly from the struggle within Cuba. Outside influences such as the USA and Russia are presented as catalysts for change after Castro takes power.

The illustrations are interesting, thick black lines and edges are applied on most frames. The best were some of the speech scenes as bold text sprays from Castro's limbs. The graphics flow from the distinctive caricature elements of the characters.

Che sofferenza!!

Cuba e Fidal Castro sono un altro di quegli argomenti di cui la sottoscritta conosce poco o nulla. Quindi questo romanzo grafico è capitato proprio a fagiolo. Se dico anche che la mia idea di Che Guevara è ancora più vaga...

Di Kleist avevo già letto Cash: I see a darkness. La storia era stata utile per scoprire il personaggio di Johnny Cash ma era stata una sofferenza anche quello.

Qua si parte da un giornalista tedesco che arriva a Cuba prima della rivoluzione castrista e viene c

Imaginative and truly nuanced, but a bit difficult to follow.

Sehr informativ, aber für meinen Geschmack ein bisschen steif erzählt, im Vergleich zu Autoren wie zum Beispiel Joe Sacco. Etwas schwierig finde ich auch das Verhältnis von Fakt und Fiktion, das mir nicht ganz klar geworden ist. Ist Castros Monolog am Schluss zum Beispiel authentisch? Und wenn nicht, könnte er dann authentisch sein, basiert er auf seinen verbürgten Ansichten -oder ist er frei erfunden? Trotzdem habe ich auf angenehme Weise einiges gelernt und bin gespannt auf Kleists andere Grap ...more

Ova knjiga je interesantna kao kronologija Castrova života, ali ne daje nikakav komentar na lik i djelo (ili ga barem nisam upijela iščitati). Ostavila me je s dojmom da je Castro tragičan lik, a Kuba neuspjeli eksperiment. Taj dojam sam stekla na temelju nekoliko zadnjih stranica u kojima Castro na kraju svog životnog puta dane provodi u brendiranoj odjeći (adidasovoj trenirci) koja je simbol svega protiv čega se borio svoj cijeli život.

Great stuff; it's an unbiased and powerful account of the history of Castro and the Cuban revolution. It has a really rough (and implausible) beginning, but after 80 or so pages it finds its stride.

Epic and well rounded telling of rise and staying power of Castro. Beautifully drawn and pretty well-rounded, this is an excellent way to get past the headlines and to the man himself.

Was both informative and interesting to read, though it was too choppy when jumping between the past and present.
