This book is going to sell like hotcakes, I’m telling you now. The Korean publisher, Dasan Books, decided that it is just as important to entertain children as it is to educate them. To achieve this they decided to draw manga-style biographies based off famous people; the first being President Barack Obama.
This book is targeted at children ages 8-12, people who love shota, his throng of fans, and otaku who love anything that might be related to manga. It follows Obama’s life from his childhood up to his presidency, and everything in-between.
As mentioned before, there will be many more “heroes” this line of books will cover, like Charles Darwin, Martin Luther King, Oprah, Hillary Clinton, and God Len. It’s a pretty genius idea if you ask me, and will sell tons, especially when the Oprah book comes out. You can actually buy the book now, check it out at Amazon.
