1st printing. Written by Michael Crowley. Art by Dan Goldman. Sure to be the most-talked-about book about the most-talked-about election, 08, a stunning work of graphic nonfiction, is a fresh take on the campaign diary that will burst the press bubble around this election year's campaigns and tell the unlikely, true story of what it takes to win a party's nomination and the job of the most powerful person in the world. The media and the public couldn't be more obsessed with the deathmatch for the Democratic nomination and the fight for the White House between such polarized parties. Capturing the drama are one of today's most prominent political journalists and one of today's most gifted narrative artists, and their fresh look at politics will appeal to a new generation of political readers. The epic clash of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The resurgence of John McCain. The issues, personalities, and photo ops. 08 takes readers deep inside the most fascinating political campaign of our time in a way that stands in bold relief to routine political journalism. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., B&W. Cover price $17.95.
