Birthday buddies

hot_to_trotI was just checking the first part of a forthcoming graphic biography of Trotsky titled, I guess, Trotsky. It’s by Rick Geary and comes out, of course, in October. I was just reading about the anniversary of Tiananmen in the news, and am also making my way through this sprawling and accessible history by Archie Brown called The Rise and Fall of Communism—so a Trotsky comic book seems to fit right in with my reading arc at the moment. I’m hoping for something along the lines of Chester Brown’s awwweeesssommme Louis Riel, but I doubt anything can touch that, at least in terms of graphic bios. Before terrorism there was communism. Think about it.
