I thought this could be a fun read as we're in the midst of primary season again. I was surprised at how clear the last primaries/election was in my memory as the graphic novel reminded me of the specifics. A graphic novel was an interesting approach as it allowed the artist to include screenshots of television appearances, and other visual snapshots that were so central to the coverage of the elections. It was fun and quick, and probably only really enjoyable because it was such a momentous election. I'd be surprised if there were a similar graphic novel for this coming election, for example. However, if you're interested in graphic novels as a medium and the 2008 election as a topic,this one is for you.
