Overview

The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of
the United States of America. It is the framework for the
organization of the United States government and for the
relationship of the federal government with the states, citizens,
and all people within the United States. The Constitution
creates the three branches of the national government and
specifies the powers and duties of each. This graphic novel
adaptation of the country’s greatest work includes all of the
text from the original document as well as a narrative that
brings to life the founding fathers’ work.

Whether you're a parent, a teacher, or an interested citizen, what if you could explain the Constitution and the disagreements that led to its crafting in about an hour? Round Table Companies, a publishing company, has done just that by assigning to a writer and an artist the challenge of creating a graphic adaptation to explain the writing of the United States Constitution and the effort the founding fathers exerted to ratify it.

Driven by a contemporary steampunk flare, this graphic novel adaptation of the constitution should be a required read for anyone interested in learning about U.S. democracy and civic procedures. I can’t decide who I am going to give a copy to first, my niece (who is 13), my mom (who is 62), my neighbor (who is 83), my favorite kid (who is 4), my best friend and his wife (who are 30 and 32), or my undergraduate teacher candidates (who are mostly in their mid 20s).

In a triumph of character design... this volume dramatizes the compelling soap opera of egos that, against considerable odds, managed to create the imperfect yet sorely needed document that has endured for more than two centuries. Recommended for tweens through adults in and out of the classroom.

“Raising as many questions as it answers, The United States Constitution is not truly ‘educational,‘ but for those seeking a straightforward (for the most part) depiction of the struggles and history of the Constitution, this graphic adaptation, despite all its oddities, is certainly more engaging than a simple prose history.”

Reading about the Constitution in comic form helps kids and others understand a very complicated document that is densely packed with organization, rules, and procedures. This comic would be a good guide to have along with any study of the Constitution. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in United States history, or to teachers or families wanting to teach kids about our government in an entertaining way. I will be using it with my own kids whenever we study United States history.
