SelfMadeHero is to mark the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth with a graphic novel adaptation of The Communist Manifesto created by Guardian cartoonist and PCO stalwart Martin Rowson.

The publisher says “Martin Rowson employs his trademark draughtsmanship and wit in this lively adaptation, which is both an incisive introduction to the ideas of Communism and a lucid explanation of its aims.”
