I would have given it a fourth star if the artwork had been better. For readers of graphic novels, the visual appeal is lacking. For readers of traditional biographies, the depth is lacking. It's like a short TV biography segment.
On the other hand, the written side of the material is above average as an introduction to a complex and influential man, and the book has a great deal of merit on that basis.
It is difficult to tell the story of any human being in so few pages, but at least this gives a coherent snapshot of why he was of significance.
