"Celebrated during his lifetime as much for his personality as for his paintings, Andy Warhol (1928-87) is the most famous and influential of the Pop artists, who developed the notion of 15 minutes of fame, and the idea that an artist could be as illustrious as the work he creates. This graphic novel biography offers insight into the turning point of Warhol's career and the creation of the Thirteen Most Wanted Men mural for the 1964 World's Fair, when Warhol clashed with urban planner Robert Moses, architect Philip Johnson, and Governor Nelson Rockefeller" --… (més)

Well, this is a mess that fails to satisfy on any level. The art is sketchy and sloppy, making it hard to distinguish characters. I had a hard time picking even Warhol out on some pages. The dialogue is just as vague and sketchy as it meanders toward a point. This is not an engaging story and certainly not a good source of information about Warhol outside the two page timeline at the front of the book. Most of the scenes presented in the body of the book just left me asking why is this happening or how does it matter. I wish I had read a real biography instead.
Wait a second.
Mm-hm. Mm-hm.
There.
I just browsed the Wikipedia entry on Warhol, and it was more satisfying than this book. ( )

Becoming Andy Warhol a book written by New York Times bestselling writer Nick Bertozzi and artist Pierce Hargan is the beautiful, captivating graphic novel of the first steps of this pop artist in the environment. It will be published by Abrams at the beginning of October.

Black, white and purple the colors used for this graphic novel divided in chapters. You will find it surely interesting.

Andy Warhol has been the most known artist of pop art of XX century and the most venerated icon of the sector, inspiration for hundreds of painters and creatives. What a wonderful portrait of this young man!

No sure why I have always had the impression Warhol had to be a hard man. In this book a completely different character. Sometimes a shy person, pretty introvert, in love for his mom, an enthusiast of his work.

His visions different from the creations of the past decades, at the beginning misunderstood.
Maybe the idea of buying a piece of art of a suicide not so attracting...
With the time Warhol abandoned the idea of painting. He loved to use pictures, manipulating them, pressing them, coloring them (remember the famous painting of Marylin Monroe?) for create art.

Warhol and his art recognized in every corner of the world.

This graphic novel is very beauty because it doesn't give the idea of the immensity of this talent but the one of a young boy called Andy, who, with all himself wanted to arrive. It's a fresh, young, funny graphic novel.

The book concludes the adventures of young Andy Warhol with the creation of the Thirteen Most Wanted Men mural for the 1964 World's Fair. This work launched him in the Olympus of the most known artists and painters of the XXth century.
All the rest is known...

I thank NetGalley and Abrams for this book.

I did not really care for this book. Perhaps because the book seemed to jump around a lot in places and it made it difficult to follow since I was not too familiar with this part of his life beforehand. I also thought some of the characters in the drawings looked too much like other characters making it questionable whom it was supposed to be unless the character's name was in the dialogue. ( )
