Marx – A graphic bio of the father of communism

Corrine Maier and Anne Simon, the duo who brought us the historical graphic novel Freud, are at it again with Marx, a graphic bio of the father of communism, Karl Marx.

Love him or hate him, Marx – nicknamed the Devil in his day – was a fascinating philosopher, economist and social figure who advocated a revolution to end unemployment, inequality and exploitation of the working class. He wrote the Communist Manifesto (with Friedrich Engels) and fought until his death to replace capitalism with a form of socialism and communism. Like Freud, Marx is engaging and educational with a bit of humor, and a perfect intro to one of the most controversial social writers of our time.
