    The United States Constitution: A Round Table Comic is an educational and creative look at this nation’s founding document. Round Table Comic guides readers through the text of the Constitution, using the Constitutional Convention as the backdrop, and switches back and forth between the delegates debating and the Articles of the Constitution. Additionally, they include several “Historical Find” sidebars, highlighting interest pieces of trivia, and footnotes about changes that were made by future The United States Constitution: A Round Table Comic is an educational and creative look at this nation’s founding document.

The illustrations of the Constitution are kind of odd though; using a chorus of characters from different time-periods and even robots and cyborgs from the future (probably done to offset the white maleness of Colonial times). For an educational comic, The United States Constitution: A Round Table Comic is pretty good and will give kids a solid understanding of how the government works (theoretically).

I’m not going to sup­ply a syn­op­sis. If you don’t know the syn­op­sis you should, at least, pick up this book to learn more about this amaz­ing, ground­break­ing and his­toric document. Right off the bat I liked that the author included the Found­ing Fathers in the title of this comic graphic adap­ta­tion. The United States Con­sti­tu­tion: A Round Table Comic Graphic Adap­ta­tion by Nadja Baer (Adapter), Thomas Jef­fer­son (Author), John Adams (Author), Thomas Paine (Author), James Madi­son (Author) and Nathan Lueth (Illus­tra­tor) takes the US Con­sti­tu­tion and, using the orig­i­nal text, presents it in an easy to under­stand graph­i­cal format. This is a short book but, and this is a big but, it con­tains 100 per­cent of the orig­i­nal text of the supreme law of these United States as well as pic­tures and nar­ra­tive to com­mu­ni­cated the con­cepts which are for­eign to so many people. I am by no means a Con­sti­tu­tional scholar, but I have read the doc­u­ment (and even keep a pocket edi­tion in my car). I also find Con­sti­tu­tional law very inter­est­ing and fol­low all Supreme Court cases. I even find the Supreme Court opin­ions a fas­ci­nat­ing read, espe­cially those that I dis­agree with. I think that it’s sad that most peo­ple don’t real­ize how much do Supreme Court cases affect our every day lives and that not only it is our right to pay atten­tion, but it is our duty as cit­i­zens. In the past 10 years some of the deci­sions made by the Court were out­ra­geous, un-American and dan­ger­ous to our democ­racy; yet went unno­ticed by the major­ity of reg­is­tered vot­ers. But what can you expect from peo­ple that see vot­ing as a “chore” instead of a privilege? For more reviews and bookish posts please visit: http://www.ManOfLaBook.com

    I’ve wanted to re-read through the Constitution for a while and this came across my desk, thought I might give it a try. This was ok. I was hoping for more insight, as then summary promised.

    lotsa primary sources in this. caricature style art. Didn't so much care for the female president in a steam punk outfit, or the senate in their half greek half modern clothes. Great resource to expose kids to the constitution in a fun way.

    I used this as a teaching tool with my students. The depth of conversation that this book sparked was fantastic, but some of the tangents made it a bit difficult to teach for true understanding. That said, I look forward to more by Nadja Baer and will happily add more by her to my classroom library.

    Didn't realize you could make something as mind numbing as early American politics so entertaining.

    A graphic novel adaption of the drafting of the Constitution featuring the usually players as well as robots, dandies and a steampunk president (who is a woman!) Basically don't show this book to anyone who works at Fox News or they will piss themselves. I loved the fresh style of artwork. It reminded me of the "Liberty's Kids" TV show with a bit of an older edge to it. Definite recommendation to help explain the Constitution and this part of our nation's history
