Gonzo - Will Bingley & Anthony Hope-Smith

Gonzo by Will Bingley and illustrated by Anthony Hope-Smith is a witty, thoughtful graphic biography of the king of Gonzo journalism. Over the course of Hunter S. Thompson's extraordinary life he was publicly branded a bum, a vandal, a thief, a liar, an addict, a freak, and a psychopath. Some of which were true. Yet even when compared to the most significant figures of the 20th century, his legacy retains a brilliantly vital force. The great American writer, the great American iconoclast, the great American hedonist--however you choose to view him, Thompson remains the high-water mark for all social commentators worldwide, and a truly fearless champion of individual liberties. This is his story, the story of a troubled kid from Louisville who went on to become an international icon. A story that plumbs the darkest depths of American society and charts the now legendary adventures that birthed Gonzo Journalism, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," and a lifestyle beyond imagination.
