Drawn Leaders

What could be more American than comic books? Comic books about presidential candidates John McCain (Author: Andy Helfer, Artist: Steve Thompson) and Barack Obama (Author: Jeff Mariotte, Artist: Tom Morgan) immortalised in the form of graphic biographies by IDW publishing, in a revolutionary initiative in the world of both politics and comic books. The beautifully rendered and painstakingly researched comics will be available in paper format and to download onto your mobile at Go Comics from October 8th. The president of IDW says the comics will get more people involved with politics as they speak to such a wide demographic whilst they can also “help get beyond the headlines on these two candidates.”
