|An excellent introduction to the complicated document that is the foundation of our country, The United States Constitution: a Graphic Novel Adaptation is an opening way of |
The art style is engaging and sets the tone for the complicated, discriminatory nature of founding fathers and United States history in general. For panels depicting slavery and the
three-fifths law, the person is only depicted as three-fifths of a person...completely jarring and unnatural and brings to life that they were not looked as full body individuals. At times the writing can be cramped, I could read it easily even with it being on the smaller size.
I would say that it goes through the Amendments quickly and often times washing over the complication of these additions to our constitution, however, you are still able to get a feel and understanding for it. I would recommend this to anyone who is trying to understand the Constitution and how it has been interpreted throughout the years since the Founding Fathers drafted it.
