Spider-Gwen Annual #1. 2016.
Much has been said about this comic that came out during the Presidential campaign season - is this an intentional lampooning of Donald Trump?

When Optimus takes over to protect the world - shades of totalitarianism, fascism, uber-nationalism. etc. Symbolic.

The United States Constitution. Jonathan Hennessey. Aaron McConnell. 9780809094707.

I had the privilege of meeting Jonathan and presenting with him on a panel at San Diego Comic Con. He is an intelligent and dedicated author and this shows in his work. This is a must buy graphic novel - it teaches the constitution in a highly accessible way that also delves into more recent events. This is a great book to show students why this document needs to be read and understood.
