Synopsis

Cuba My Revolution by Inverna Lockpez, Dean Haspiel

From the moment Castro captures Havana in 1959, 17-year-old Sonya believes in the promise of the Cuban Revolution. A medical student who dreams of becoming a painter, she joins the militia. As a medic at the Bay of Pigs, she's stunned to find a lost love on the other side of the battlefield - and then finds herself imprisoned and tortured by her own comrades. This title is based on a true story.

Reviews

A bold, beautiful and mesmerizing story that needed to have been told... A compelling piece of work that will stay with you long after you put this graphic novel down. (ComicRevolution.com)
