1 Review
The first of three parts, this beautiful graphic novel from the celebrated black cartoonist Ho Che Anderson traces the life and career of civil rights leader Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. from his birth to his assassination. Anderson's dramatic lines on the page bring out the power of this important American story with a truthful ease rarely found elsewhere. More than a history lesson, KING is an important book to have at hand.

Review: King Volume 3 (King #3)

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

Powerful visual storytelling, including some great speeches from King himself. The author apologizes for being visually all over the map, but says it was his way of telling the story. I can respect that, but it did make the book extremely hard to follow. Well worth the investment to try, though. Read full review
