Political Power: Nelson Mandela
Here's the cover of our upcoming bio comic on Nelson Mandela. It's part of Bluewater's Political Power series. We were thrilled to write this book. Clay is a professor of African history, and the opportunity to teach a new audience about Mandela's importance as one of the great political/social figures of the 20th century is a great opportunity and, although it may sound corny, an honor.
Capturing such a man in a 22-page comic is also a sizable challenge! Obviously, we couldn't cover every event in his 91+ years of life, so we had to find a significant narrative thread and follow it from boyhood to the present. We're very happy with the story we came up with.
Art by the marvelously talented Pablo Martinena.
