“The artwork is very good, in a traditional comic book style, and helps tell the story cleanly, whether personal, political or military . . . . The book is an excellent overview of the highlights of a life and career.”
“Churchill: A Graphic Biography is fantastic. It's informative while being engaging with the writing and artwork working in perfect unison. I would recommend giving it a read for sure if you want to learn about Winston Churchill in a unique manner compared to the all-prose biographies of him.”

“Churchill is a well-done biography. Presented in the graphic novel format it offers a different perspective of Winston Churchill’s life. Regault and Dalmas capture Winston Churchill as one of the most important democratic leaders of the twentieth-century. He not only saved Great Britain, but he saved the entire world from falling to Nazi Germany.”
