Inverna Lockpez left her native Cuba in the late 1960s to seek a new beginning in America. Now a widely respected artist, she has crafted the story of her life in her homeland in Cuba: My Revolution, a semiautobiographical tale of what it was like to be a woman in Castro’s Cuba in the 1960s. The book, now out from Vertigo, is a fascinating exploration of art, politics, family, rebellion, and optimism. We talked about it with Lockpez.
Was it difficult to bring this tale to life in comic form?
