Mr. Honda. The Comic Book.

Illustration for article titled Mr. Honda. The Comic Book.

So my eldest son, who is 8, loves reading biographies. But most of the biographies he checks out from the library are in manga form. He's read about John F. Kennedy, Babe Ruth, and Honda founder Soichiro Honda—all in manga form.

Since he loves cars, he really, really liked reading about Soichiro Honda. The manga actually taught him a lot about engines and how they work. It's a shame that some people look at comic books and somehow think they can't be educational or intelligent.

Postcard is a regular peek behind the Kotaku East curtain, whether that be game-related or, most likely, not.

I absolutely agree Brian. Back when I was in Korea, there were a lot of classic literature and biographies in comic form. I used to read them a lot when I was younger.
