Coming to Newstand Near You

Have you Heard Our Government is planning a comic book to explain Health Care Reform to its citizens.

A new comic book to explain President Obama's health-care reform is coming! It's being written by Jonathan Gruber, the MIT economist behind many of the reform's concepts!
We're talking in exclamation points because we hope the comic book borrows from the over-exclamation of such hallowed comics as Rex Morgan, MD and Mary Worth!
OK, the new venture may not go that far, says a Pulse report in the Boston Herald, but the idea of a 2,400-page document being reduced to splashy-colored panels with captions ought to amuse -- no matter on which side of the aisle you sit.
Gruber promises lots of pictures and text. That's because it's a graphic novel, a long-form comic book. But that doesn't mean it's a novel-novel, as in fiction. Gruber says he'll be using facts to tell the tale.
It already has a catchy title: Health Care Reform: What It Is, Why It's Necessary, How It Works

Pretty sure (NSFW Satire in following links)  Robot Chicken may have some fun with this during Adult Swim but I digress. Psst here is my favorite comic about the constitution.
