High school civics made simple

As the presidential race heads into the homestretch, let us reflect on everything we learned about politics in high school. For instance: Laws are passed when an animated bill with feet walks between the two chambers of Congress and then gets signed by the president. Or even something as simple as: There have been 43 presidents. (of course, when I was in high school, there were only 42)

But what if instead of textbooks and scratchy-voiced filmstrips, we had used comics? And made up facts if we went along? Now THAT'S American.

I liked "The Dark Knight" too. But game theory?

No one does historical comics like Kate Beaton does.
