Gonzo : A Graphic Biography of Hunter S. Thompson Paperback
Over the course of Hunter S. Thompson's extraordinary life he was publically branded a bum, a vandal, a thief, a liar, an addict, a freak and a psychopath.
Some of these epithets were true. Yet, even when compared to the most significant figures of the 20th century, his legacy remains a brilliantly vital force.
This is his story - the story of a troubled kid who went on to become an international icon, a story that plumbs the darkest depths of American society and charts the now-legendary adventures that birthed Gonzo journalism.

Review by clfisha
I am a bit of a fan of Hunter S Thompson’s earlier works and tend to keep an eye out for Hunter related literature. So I had to buy this when I spotted it and whilst there maybe no surprises in store, I still enjoyed this speedy rush through Hunter S Thompson’s life.The art work is the highlight. Drawn lovingly, black and white, it manages to distil the essential Thompson. The text is a great compliment to it, mixing his literary works is spot on in tone and makes this a great read. Ok so although detail is obviously missed, this is a graphic novel not a biography and it's a great start for interested newbie’s’ and fans alike.
