Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fully authorized visual biography, this graphic novel with a foreword from Nelson Mandela himself is an adaptation of his memoir, Long Walk to Freedom. The story of a solitary man who, despite unbelievable hardships, brought down one of the most repugnant regimes of the world is presented in vivid color by a team of South African artists. The book depicts Mandelas boyhood in a small South African village, his growing political activism with the African National Conference, his 27-year incarceration, his dramatic release, and his years as president of South Africa. With new interviews, firsthand accounts, and recently uncovered archival material, this visually dramatic biography introduces Mandela's gripping story to a whole new generation of readers.

La historia de un hombre solitario quien, a pesar de dificultades inimaginables, derribó uno de los regímenes más repugnantes del mundo está presentada a todo color por un equipo de artistas sudafricanos. El libro representa la niñez de Mandela en un pequeño pueblo sudafricano, su creciente activismo político con el Congreso Nacional Africano, sus 27 años en la cárcel, su dramática liberación y sus años como presidente de Sudáfrica. Con entrevistas nuevas, reportes de primera mano y materiales de archivo recién descubiertos, esta biografía visualmente dramática le presenta la cautivadora historia de Mandela a toda una nueva generación de lectores.
