Born in London in 1969, Ho Che Anderson was named after the Vietnamese and Cuban revolutionaries Ho Chi Minh and Che Guevara. Ho Che has perfected a film noir style in his graphic novels King and Young Hoods in Love, as well as I Want to Be Your Dog. King, a controversial, unauthorized biography of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., catapulted him into the public consciousness, landing him interviews on major radio stations across America in 1993 during Black History Month. It remains the only graphic novel to use the F-word about 100 times and still earn an honourable mention from the Parent's Choice Awards. Ho Che is also the creator of the miniseries Wise Son and the one-shot Black Dogs.
