"Iraqi Oil for Beginners": New Comic from Jon Sacks

I've not seen it, but Olivia Snaije's account in The Daily Star makes it appear quite promising. Here's a snippet from the article:

He succeeds [in making it visually engaging] by breaking up each page with well-written sidebars and black-and-white pen drawings, including portraits of all the major players in Iraq's history and a large number of US politicians, notably a two-headed James Baker III. According to Sack, the former secretary of state lobbied to cancel 80 percent of Iraq's debt and, at the same time, offered to help Kuwait extract $27 billion in outstanding debts from Iraq (in his capacity as senior counselor of the Carlyle Group, a private equity firm and one of America's biggest investors in the defense industry).
