Doomed revolutionary, a sexual renegade, a dynamo with a limp, and a prescient critic of both capitalism and Bolshevism, Rosa Luxemburg’s extraordinary life has always deserved a wider audience. Full of travel, political drama, sexual freedom and intellectual feuds — Luxemburg’s journey out of Poland to becoming a leader of the German Communist uprising certainly contains enough excitement to fill the pages of a graphic novel.
Author and cartoonist Kate Evans presents exclusive excerpts from her work: Red Rosa: A Graphic Biography of Rosa Luxemburg, a lively history of Luxemburg’s life and fine blend of Evans’ other areas of thematic interests of feminism, class tensions and womanhood.
