Baby, You Can Drive My Car

Show me a problem where comics are not the solution. Indeed, the 1990s started the ball bouncing for comics as didactic instruments. This doesn’t mean it was a new phenom. Comics taught soldiers how to save their lives in battle, Americans how to fear the Commie hoards, humans how to survive an A-Bomb, and teens how to find spiritual renewal.

This fine specimen, “A Run For Your Money: How to get the most out of your automobile—in 250 pictures and easy-to-read text” is a tour de force of comic eloquence. As you’ll see from this sampling, no topic in car culture was left uncovered and everything could be explained through a drawing or two.
