“Widely acknowledged as a masterpiece, this award-winning biography invokes King’s flaws, tragedies, and triumphs.” (Library Journal)
“King goes beyond history to examine life's complications, particularly pertaining to racial relations. King the character becomes the personification of these complications... Rare and vital, Ho Che Anderson's King adds a significant contribution to the depth of artistry and subject matter in the world of graphic literature.” (Andrew D. Arnold - Time.com)
“Using novelistic techniques, impressive research, a dazzling array of graphic styles and an acute ear for dialogue, Anderson recreates the life of Martin Luther King, bringing both the man and the civil rights movement thrillingly to life.” (Publishers Weekly)
“While Anderson starkly presents King’s less-than-saintly episodes... the final reaction is a fuller understanding of a great man, with inspiring ideals, and an unshakable dedication to equality through nonviolent, loving means. ... MLK’s legacy undeniably lives on in Anderson’s King.” (Terry Hong - Bookdragon: Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program)
“Vitally, Anderson draws an earthy King, one who likes soul food and soulful women, but who is also capable of inspiring and challenging oratory, theological radicalism and courageous leadership, even when faced with fists, firebombs, and FBI persecution. …[W]hat a book!” (George Elliott Clarke - The Halifax Herald)
