Summary

In King, Ho Che Anderson rendered Martin Luther King Jr.'s life from his childhood in Atlanta to his tragic assassination in an expressionistic visual style that propelled King's story with cinematic momentum: in doing so, he created a monumental graphic biography that liberated King from the saintly, one-dimensional, hagiographic image so prevalent in pop culture. Out of print since 2006, Fantagraphics Books is publishing a newly designed volume, King: The Special Edition, that includes the original 240-page book as well as nearly a hundred additional pages of "extras," including: "Black Dogs," a 14-page prelude which features a dialogue between a young black couple expecting a child, living in LA in the aftermath of the Rodney King riots; excerpts from the author's work diary; sketches; excerpts from the draft of the script; and an all-new epilogue titled "Assassin," written and drawn especially for this new edition. This book is a must-have for libraries and is a wonderful educational resource for high school-aged-and-up students, as well as African-American Studies programs.
