by Geoffrey Canada

To adapt an extensive piece of writing to a graphic novel has its benefits - easy readability, fun, a summary of the text, a graphic interpretation, or translation, in a way - but it can be like removing ones guts and replacing them with pictures of some of the guts. It ain't the same. Something is lost and it hurts.
But the graphics are good and many more kids will read this than Canada's original autobiographical argument.
