Comic Critique picks CUBA: MY REVOLUTION as Best Graphic Novel of 2010

"The exile autobiography Cuba: My Revolution lived up to the promise of its talent as GRAPHIC NOVEL OF THE YEAR. Lifetime visual artist Inverna Lockpez’ script uses essential words to sketch the meanings of moments and the truths of human nature (including those that were invisible to her at the time), and the book’s artist Dean Haspiel establishes himself further than ever as the visual version of the great literary mystery or crime writers; literally hard-edged but with a wide eye and open heart, setting scenes dynamically and peopling them with maximum sensitivity but zero sentimentality. Tone and color artist José Villarubia’s palette of moral shadings and pen of blood, restricted to black, white, grays and reds, completed the haze of hope and the defined determination of survival in this brave and honest testament."
