    Another of NBM's readable but clunky biographies about musicians. Like the previous volumes with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the format is weird. A guy named Gaet's writes short dramatized graphic stories from various moments of Bob Marley's life that are illustrated by 19 different artists (mostly French, I'd guess, like the author) with wildly different styles. It's sometimes a little hard to tell what's going on in the stories, but after every story or two, Sophie Blitman jumps in to Another of NBM's readable but clunky biographies about musicians.

It's sometimes a little hard to tell what's going on in the stories, but after every story or two, Sophie Blitman jumps in to provide a two-page text piece going into more detail about the people and events in the graphic portions. This makes for a lot of redundancy and some awkward writing, so it's not an optimal reading experience, but the book is informative with the breeziness of a magazine.

    ''No reader, no cry'' How could we not cry after losing such a legend? Marley changed the music world forever with his sweet reggae songs. Not only were the lyrics easy to sing along, but he believed in freedom and dedicated many performances to such causes. Unfortunately, he was an adulterer and the author (not that I blame her) couldn't help but making sure we got the point about his douchebag ways. Do keep in mind that every chapter is drawn by a different artist. The author changes style, jus ''No reader, no cry'' How could we not cry after losing such a legend?

    This was an amazing book, probably the best graphic novel I have read. It was a biography of Bob Marley. There some short sections of text in between the chapters provided more detailed information. Each section was drawn by a different artist and I appreciated all the different styles of art. The book included professional, musical and personal information, some that was completely new to me. I haven't read many graphic novels, but I loved this one.

    More for the casual fan, rather than the hardcore fan, this book is a great overview of Bob Marley's early life, and his rise to global fame. Told in both graphic and narrative chapters, it is an engaging easy read. I was given a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I’m not going to lie, I’m really not that big into graphic novels...however, with that being said, I won this book through a giveaway in exchange for an honest review....and i was actually pleasantly surprised! Not only is the book super colorful and visually appealing, but it actually held my attention and had me wanting more! If you haven’t already, you should definitely check this book out!

    'Bob Marley in Comics!' by Sophie Blitman and Gaet's with a whole bunch of artists is a graphic novel with text chapters to tell the story of Bob Marley. I love the music of Bob Marley, but I didn't know a lot of the details of his life. He was born Nesta Robert Marley and had a tough childhood in Jamaica. With a black mother and a white father, he didn't really fit in. Living in poverty in Trenchtown, he found some lifelong friends and future band-mates.

I love the music of Bob Marley, but I didn't know a lot of the details of his life. He was born Nesta Robert Marley and had a tough childhood in Jamaica. With a black mother and a white father, he didn't really fit in. Living in poverty in Trenchtown, he found some lifelong friends and future band-mates. His rise to fame included living in multiple countries and having lots of children with different women. His famous albums and appearances make this book as well as a better understanding of his Rastafari lifestyle. There are almost 20 different artists featured telling different aspects of the life of Bob Marley. I liked some of the art better than others, but the segments are short, so it's not a distraction. The corresponding text chapters fill in the gaps and bridge details together. I enjoyed this look at the life of this legend. I received a review copy of this graphic novel from NBM Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

    A satisfying graphic biography of Bob Marley. Some of the artists were more enjoyable than others - my favorites were Jena and Julien Atika. The cartoonyer ones were just not my cup of tee. It's pretty text heavy for a graphic novel, but the text is actually pretty spare and helps connect aspects of Bob's life in meaningful ways. Longer read than expected. Overall, yeah, just read it, especially if you like Bob's music, but don't know much about his life.

    This was surprisingly pretty well done (aside from the cheesy title) - easy-to-follow yet emotion-filled artwork, dialogue sprinkled with song lyrics, all occasionally interspersed by short essays outlining some of the more complicated or important aspects of Bob's life and character. I really enjoyed it.

    Bob Marley in Comics goes beyond surface level to offer insights not just on what Marley did, but on how he thought and why his worldview developed.
