Comic Book Teaches About President Obama’s Victory

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Teachers can ditch the textbooks when lecturing about President Obama’s historic White House victory.

IDW comics is coming out with a new comic book, Barack Obama: Road To The White House, that recounts Obama’s presidential campaign and historic win.

Editor Scott Dunbier says the comic, which hits shelves in April, is the perfect learning tool for teachers and students because, “We strived to keep it unbiased. It’s an accurate portrayal of a piece of history that kids would enjoy reading.”

For the comic, Dunbier explains that IDW made it their “goal” to not turn President Obama into a super hero- like character and simply show him “as a man running for the highest office in America, and becoming president. But he’s still a man with faults.”

IDW has already received calls from teachers around the country hoping to use the comic in their classroom, and Dunbier jokes, “Barack Obama has become the comic industry’s own little stimulus package.”
