Esquire UK turns us onto a new graphic novel on the life of writer, Hunter S. Thompson. “Gonzo: A Graphic Biography of Hunter S. Thompson bids to do justice to the memory of the late, greatly intoxicated, journalist. For all his flaws, Thompson was a hypnotising character – an enraged, gun-toting misanthrope who, at the height of his powers, had an exquisite way with words that placed him alongside F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway in the grand lineage of literature’s great self-destructive American males (although, as Thompson’s editor Alan Rizner points out in the foreword, they both managed to write a lot more good books).” Well said. This one may be tough to find. Even Amazon is out of stock.
