Durruti: Shadow of the People is the very first issue of a brand-new mini-series about the life and death of blacksmith, anarchist, and Spanish revolutionary Buenaventura Durruti—one of the most fascinating figures in human history.
Writer/Creator Brenton Lengel has studied his life and the Spanish Civil War in depth for over a decade and has penned a feature-length biopic/war epic which was called "possibly one of the most beautifully written scripts on the site" by blcklst.com.
"You must not forget that we can also build. It is we the workers who built the cities and the palaces—here in Spain and America, and everywhere! We can do it again! Better than before! The bourgeoisie might blast its own world to ruin before it leaves the stage of history…We carry a new world, here, in our hearts. That world is growing in this minute." —Buenaventura Durruti (July 14, 1896–November 20, 1936)
