An extraordinary illustrated graphic novel about the legendary political figure Che Guevara. His name is equated with rebellion, revolution, and socialism.

Che Guevara's life has been explored and portrayed in numerous books and films, including "The Motorcycle Diaries," and he continues to captivate the public imagination more than forty years after his death.
