This comic book format biography seems a little propaganda like to me, with it’s official endorsement and preface containing a speech Mandela delivered to launch the comic books series in 2005. The volume covers Mandela’s life story but is overly inspirational.

I read the first chapter, about two dozen pages. The artwork is nothing extraordinary, and the tone is a bit didactic.
