Presidential Candidates Go Comic Book

Thanks to IDW Publishing, you'll soon be able to read about our two presidential candidates in comic book form. Presidential Material: Barack Obama and Presidential Material: John McCain, two graphic novel biographies, will be released on October 8. If you're not into real books, you can also download them to your phone.

“We’re tremendously proud of these books,” IDW president Ted Adams said in a press release. “Comics and graphic novels speak to millions of people encompassing all demographic, social, cultural and economic stripes. It’s a great way to get beyond the headlines on these two candidates.”

McCain's story is being written by Andy Helfer and drawn by Stephen Thompson. Obama's story is being written by Jeff Mariotte and drawn by Tom Morgan.

Comic-Con, the world's biggest comic book convention, is going on right now in San Diego. Has anyone seen John McCain in tights? Anyone?
