En bild säger mer än tusen ord.
Kombinationen av teckningar och text är oslagbar för att illustrera händelser som finns nedtecknade, men inte filmmässigt bevarade eller ens tagna.
Trots att jag själv genom livet läst en hel del av den tidiga arbetarrörelsens historia så fanns här mycket som gått mig förbi, inte minns den missade revolutionen i Tyskland, missad möjlighet för hur annorlunda skulle inte världen sett ut om den tyska revolutionen (istället för den ryska) skulle ha b...

"Utterly brilliant. The best book I've read this year" Steve Bell, Guardian "A courageous leader of the early twentieth-century socialist movement-a woman who dared to question both Marx and Lenin-Luxemburg was also, as Kate Evans reveals in this brilliant graphic biography, a person of deep passions, ecstatic insights, and ultimately, as fascism emerged from the ruins of World War I-heartbreak of historic dimensions. This book is hard to put down and contains a challenge that is impossible to turn away from: We could create a better world-peaceful, egalitarian, even joyful-if we are willing to learn from Red Rosa." Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Living with a Wild God "[Evan's] storytelling is a clever mix of humor, pathos, politics, and the horrors of war...[a] compelling story of a strong, independent woman who never deviated from her beliefs." Booklist "Five stars. The perfect book for [the] socialist-curious ... What Rosa Luxemburg wrote about and predicted is scarily relevant today." John Yohe, Comics Bulletin "A story told with verve, humor, and great art." Trina Robbins, author of Pretty in Ink "Kate Evans deserves our gratitude for telling the tragic tale of this early twentieth-century revolutionary." Sharon Rudahl, author and artist of Dangerous Woman "[Rosa Luxemburg] gets her due in a full-length graphic novel biography ... Red Rosa fits comfortably in this fall theme of feminist representation in graphic novels and comics." Sarah S. Ward, BookRiot "If the bedrock of this biography is its combination of Marxist theory and historical narrative-including but not limited to Luxemburg's participation in the international socialist movement, German politics, and the Russian Revolution of 1905-the motherlode is its touching portrayal of a woman who sacrificed her life for her beliefs." Jan Herman, Arts Journal "We need more political cartoonists like Kate Evans. She is an artist who lives her art and a radical who lives her politics ... she can write about revolution, not as a historical object, but as a real, relevant, living thing, because Kate is herself a revolutionary." Seth Tobocman, author and artist of Disaster and Resistance "Stunningly good." Paul Mason, author of Postcapitalism "If you have ever wanted to learn about Rosa Luxemburg, this book is the perfect entry point ... Kate Evans has made the stirring story of Rosa Luxemburg's legacy accessible to a new generation of readers. No matter how powerful the adversaries or steep the challenge, Luxemburg's passion for social and economic justice remained." Randy Shaw, Beyond Chron "Wonderful. I love the way it incorporates complicated historical details into a moving biographical account." Mary M. Talbot, author of Dotter of Her Father's Eyes "Red Rosa is a wonderfully composed and lively book. The story it tells is compelling, inspirational and fundamentally human. Instructional in its politics and discussions of economics, Red Rosa is also at turns humorous, romantic, and emotional. The decision to write this work in the graphic novel form was a brilliant one; if there is a biography whose multiple dimensions requires more than words to tell it, Rosa Luxembourg's is such a biography." Ron Jacobs, Counterpunch "The book has an infectious quality and an embracing enthusiasm for revolutionary ideas. It's a perfect historic complement to the ongoing radicalisation of the Labour Party. An empowering read for would-be revolutionaries as much as for "old hands." Morning Star "I admire it as an artist. I admire it as a writer. A huge achievement." Molly Crabapple "...in its best moments it does a fine job of telling her story. The prison scenes are particularly good." Rachel Cooke, Observer best graphic novels of 2015 "Evans startles and inspires with her beautiful symbiosis of graphic and text. It is
