Editorial Reviews

Review

"The graphic format is an ideal way to present the life of a real life 'superhero' who went from being a diligent young boxer to achieve immortality through his undoubted sporting prowess and powers as a communicator who challenged the status quo following being stripped of his title for refusing to fight in the Vietnam War.  His life straddles a period of major social change in America which culminated only recently in the [election] of the first black president. 
 
Campfire is an impressive imprint and watching boys in particular devour the[ir books] reminds me of my own childhood love of Classics Illustrated.  Intelligently written from the perspective of sports journalists , recounting  [Ali's] exploits inside and outside the ring with really dynamic illustrations, it shows that graphic novels are not just for reluctant readers although book averse boys in particular will find it hard not to pick this up." School Librarian Magazine


"Campfire manages to capture children’s attention in stories that talk up, rather than down, to their readers." — John Hogan, Graphicnovelreporter.com

"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature."

— Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

About the Author

Lewis Helfand was born in 1978 in Philadelphia. Passionate about comic books, Lewis soon published his very own, Wasted Minute - a story of a world without crime where superheroes are forced to work regular jobs. With the first issue received well, he was soon collaborating with other artists and released four more issues over the next few years. At the same time, Lewis continues to work outside the field of comic books as a freelance writer and reporter for a number of national print and online publications.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's not only that Ali's life is vibrant and full of exciting material, but it's also that Lewis Helfand and Lalit Kumar Sharma, script writer and illustrator, respectively, have done a magnificent job in presenting the life of Ali matching the same vibrancy and excitement that characterized his life. This comprehensive story includes his childhood, his early training as a boxer, winning the gold medal in the 1960 Olympics, his struggle with racism, his ascendency toward professional boxing champ, his controversial decision to become a member of the Nation of Islam, his refusal to go to Viet Nam, his comeback, all his exciting fights with Liston, Norton, and Foreman, and the years after his retirement. Helfand also does a nice job in including the race issue and the Nation of Islam decision while still focusing on Ali the boxer. This is not an ordinary graphic text just showing a string of events. The narrative is communicated with poignancy; there is feeling to the story of Ali as it is managed by Helfand. The illustrator doesn't stay behind. I particularly liked the different headlines incorporated into the story on a few occasions, condensing important information in one panel. The text also stresses on the positive, Ali's contributions not only to boxing, but also out of the realm of boxing. Even though I belong to the period when Ali was at the peak of his career, I certainly learned a lot of new things about his life during every one of its crucial and poignant moments. This graphic biography certainly deserves a 5 thumbs up.

My favorite sport to watch is boxing. Muhammad Ali is a icon to all generation. You should purchase this book if you love boxing. I also wrote a graphic novel about boxing titled The Ring King. Ali is one of the greatest boxers in sports history.
