If you’re reading a heavy subject, sometimes pictures help.
If you’re bored with a heavy subject, sometimes the pictures and the words can grab you when nothing else does.
I’m fascinated with Writers and Readers Documentary Comics. Over the years there have been titles on a number of subjects from Philosophy to Opera to Obama. This series features illustrations by well-known comic illustrators including Richard Appignanesi who also edited a number of titles in this series.
These titles are not always easy to track down. This series has been released by different publishing houses with some overlapping subjects. If you don’t find the “for beginners” series, try “Introducing” as a first word, or pair ”introducing” with the name of an artist. Here's what I found entering the keywords “Appignanesi” and “introducing”.
Enjoy and have fun!
