Fallible Fidel

book cover image Castro

As the USA gets friendlier with Cuba, one graphic novel tries to portray Fidel Castro, warts and all. Castro is narrated by a German journalist named Karl Mertens, who is plunged into the searing heat of pre-revolutionary Cuba.

Karl first meets with Castro while he is hiding in the mountains, then follows him through the dramatic revolution and his ascent to the presidency. He witnesses Castro's involvement in bloody skirmishes, failed missions, and brutal crackdowns.
